We need your time, talent and treasures:

The Silent Auction committee is looking for handcrafted items, gift cards/certificates, sporting event tickets, vacation getaways, and even cash if that is easier for some for the Silent Auction portion of this year’s church festival being held on October 16. There will not be craft buckets this year so the Silent Auction will be a great way to use the talents of our parishioners.

Items need to be dropped off at the parish office no later than October 1 if not earlier so that we can organize our items. If you have any questions about the Silent Auction, call/text Doreen Mohr @ 419-785-5936 or Vicky Lieswyn at 419-782-3884. Help make this year’s festival a success.

Baptism Class

The next Baptism class is scheduled for  Sept. 11 at 11:30 am in the St. Luke room. Parents who have not had a child baptized at St. John’s & plan to do so, need to attend this class. We also encourage expectant parents to attend before your child is born. Call the Parish office at 419-782-7121 to register. The third Sunday of the month is Baptism Sunday at 11:30 am. Contact the Parish office to make arrangements.
