And here’s an update on the St. John Learning Center’s other classes this summer… 

Thanks to the Catholic Times for a wonderful article about the St. John Community Center

July 15, 2020

The Catholic Times has a great article in the July 19th edition about all the service that goes on in the St. John Community Center. It both highlights all the social services in the community center and talks about our fundraising campaign for repairs. Thanks to the Catholic Times for running it!  

Here’s the GoFundMe page it mentions:
