HOLY WEEK at St. John
Sunday, April 28 – Palm Sunday
Students whose attendance of Holy Week services will cause them to miss school should see Fr. Peter about an official note.
As a security precaution, unless there is a parish council member on narthex duty, the side door will be locked. Aside from Holy Week, only during Sunday services, the door will be open. During all services the doorbell will be turned off. Please come in the front door or ask for assistance during regular weekly services.
Sign up for Easter Flower Donations. There are still a few spots open to sign up.
Please bring all wrapped Easter candy for the egg hunt no later than Friday May 3rd. Thank you.
The food bank continues to have much need for donations. Each time Carrol takes food there they weigh the church's donation, and our gifts are much appreciated. Lent brings a reminder to continue this helpful gifting via our service and outreach program. The food pantry donation box is in the narthex area.
The ladies of St. George are having a Mother’s Day Banquet at St. George on Thursday, May 9. All women (not just mothers and daughters) are invited. Advance tickets (only) via Gayle Goodale (319-393-7807).
