Through the generosity of our parish Knights of Columbus, a full-size photographic replica of the Shroud of Turin will be here at St. John on Wednesday, April 1. The Shroud of Turin, which we believe to be the cloth which wrapped Jesus’ body for burial, is a powerful artifact that speaks of the reality of Jesus’ crucifixion, death and Resurrection. It has been studied scientifically a great deal, most especially in the 20th and 21st centuries.Join in a fascinating evening of information about the Shroud, Wednesday, April 1, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM in the parish activity center. The docent who travels with the replica will give a presentation on the Shroud’s history, as well as the scientific studies related to it. He will be more than happy to answer questions. Once again, my thanks to our parish Knights of Columbus for makingthis inspiring evening possible!
A BeFriender is someone who listens and cares about others ... a companion on the journey ... a non-judgmental presence. A BeFriender visits another person, bringing with them the caring presence of God and our parish community. This ministry is for men and women. Please prayerfully consider BeFriender Ministry.
The commitment is: one meeting a month and visiting one person on a regular basis. BeFrienders gather to pray together and to share ideas that may make their ministry and their lives better.
If you would like to know more about BeFriender Ministry, please join us for an “Information Dinner” on Monday, April 13th at 6:30 p.m. You will have an opportunity to meet some of the current BeFrienders, learn more about the ministry, and ask any questions that you may have. Your presence at the dinner does not obligate you to any commitment. We just want you to know what BeFrienders do and how you may be a part of this ministry now ... or in the future. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by calling Elaine Schilling (629-6345) by April 12, 2015.
If you are interested in BeFriender Ministry, but cannot attend the “Information Session”, please call one of the coordinators. We will be happy to talk with you and answer any questions. A new series of training classes will begin in a few weeks. The classes are free. Now is the time to register.
