Practicing Our Faith Book Club
In April the Practicing Our Faith Book Club is reading Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy by Anne Lamott, "a powerful exploration of mercy, its limitless (if sometimes hidden) presence, why we ignore it, and how we can embrace it." The book club will meet on Thursday, April 19 at 7:00pm in the Guild Room to discuss the book. New members are always welcome!

Center for Independence Update
St. John and the Center for Independence have mutually agreed to move forward with our space usage agreement. It will begin with their Summer Program, which will run from April thru July 2018. We felt this would serve as a good first step towards a possible long term agreement. We will keep the parish informed of future developments.
