+++A blessed Memorial Day weekend to all of our St. John families!++God of power and mercy, you destroy war and put down earthly pride. Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears, that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters. Keep in your mercy those men and women who have died in the cause of freedom and bring them safely into your kingdom of justice and peace. We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen—from Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers+++Remember, there is a Memorial Day Mass on 5/27 at 9 a.m. at the St. John Cemetery (in the case of inclement weather…St. John Church)…please join us.+++We currently have 290 Generosity pledge cards and our goal is 500! Please turn in yours this weekend and THANK YOU to those who already have.+++
