Servant Event/Goodbye to Andy

Andy, our DCO intern, did a fabulous job during the year he was here. One of his last activities was to organize a Servant Event trip to North Carolina in June, where a contingent from St. John Church was involved in several different projects. We bid a sad goodbye to Andy with a brunch on July 22. We'll miss Andy, and we wish him Godspeed as he gets married, finishes his education, and continues his service to the Lord!

St. John Rocks Sandwiches!

In a huge outpouring of support, the St. John family donated the ingredients for, and made hundreds of, ham and cheese sandwiches. This was done as part of the church service on January 29, and the sandwiches were brought to the St. Vincent Depaul Society of Middletown to help feed the needy. St. John comes through time and time again!
