Thank you . . .

To the over 70 parishioners, community friends and volunteers.  We are pleased to split these proceeds 4 ways to help fund needed relief during the pandemic.

Pick-up day was a terrific day of friendly smiles (even though you couldn’t see them), nature’s beauty and a warm sunset.

Donation to St. John Neumann Fellowship

In March 2020, the Ladies Auxiliary contributed a new coffee urn and 2 utility/serving carts.  Little did we know the curtailment of fellowship due to Covid-19.

Fr. Peck wrote, “Both of these items will certainly help service the many events that take place here at the church.”  He thanked us for serving God and living the Gospel.

Spring Shred Day and Charity Garden Market canceled due to virus

Shred Day Fundraiser – April 25th moved to TBD Fall date.

Charity Garden Market – May 9th – It is with much regret that we’ve canceled our Charity Garden Market for 2020.  It was an agonizing decision for the Committee as flowers bring joy and beauty to our lives particularly during this unprecedented time.  We had hoped to continue with an on-line annuals purchase and pick-up/delivery, but that will not be possible.  For anyone that had already placed an on-line order, we have refunded your purchase.

May God bless our world, and each of you with healing and strength.
