From the Parish

  • New Group at St. John     St. Francis of Assisi said, “All things of creation are children of the Father and thus brothers of man.” Pope Francis’ calls “for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet.” The Saint Francis of Assisi Group is a new ministry at St. John Parish that is inspired by the words and actions of both St. Francis and Pope Francis. Come join us for our first meeting on Monday, March 11, at 7pm in the Parish Administration building (PAd).
