Volunteers Needed

March 24, 2017

In order to make room for a health clinic in the St. John Community Center, we are cleaning out the PSR rooms and moving the PSR program to the Bakhita Center.  This clinic will be a big blessing to the neighborhood and the parish, but we need your help.  We will be doing the final clean out of the PSR rooms on Saturday, March 25th, beginning at noon.  Please volunteer and help us get ready for this important partnership.  Contact Violet Jackson for more information on volunteering, or email or call (614) 252-5926, ext. 7.
