St. John the Apostle Catholic Church celebrates the diversity of our families and unites our parish as a worshiping community by reaching out to all people with the word of God. Our mission is to enrich the mind, body and spirit by fostering Christian ideals and beliefs for all; especially for the youth, elderly, sick, and poor.
We still need 7-8 more people to sign up to make the trip to Belterra affordable. (We split the cost of the bus.) The trip will be a Monday or Tuesday in late October or early November, if we get enough signed up.
We have a choice of a cross or a Christmas picture for our painting class. Let me know if you would like to see a sample of them. The date is Sunday, October 25 at 5 pm. This should be a lot of fun. The cost is just $30 and includes all supplies and refreshments (and fun!) . Please sign up soon.
Everyone is encouraged/invited to sign up for an adult ed session beginning late October/early November and lasting just 6 weeks. You meet just once a week. There will be day and evening groups. If you would like to host or facilitate, please let me know. Some groups will meet in homes, others at the parish. The book is entitled, “Practice Makes Catholic, Moving from a learned faith to a lived faith”. It’s easy to read and understand and will make a nice discussion book. Sign up now.
Parents, we can have a Wed night group, if you are interested!
Would you be interested in any of the following?
1. Painting evening at St John's. Everyone would paint the same picture. (We would decide on picture before then.)
2. Charter bus trip to Belterra Casino.
3. One day retreat at St John's or local.
4. Overnight retreat at St Meinrad or similar.
5. Scripture Study or Faith Sharing group. (This will replace the Why Catholic groups and begin new groups. You do not have to have been in a Why Catholic group.)
6. A speaker/presenter on common Catholic questions/issues.
