Holiday Party

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013


Our annual Holiday Party was held in the Parish Center on Tuesday December 21st.   The Ladies hosted the party in place of their monthly business meeting.   The Knights were also invited to attend.  Everyone brought either a main entree or dessert (depending on their last name).  There was plenty of food for multiple servings.

Besides bringing food for the party, donations to the food pantry in goods or funds were also being collected with $500 being collected that evening.  Also, pajamas were collected to be donated to the crisis center.

Thank you to everyone that made the holiday party a successful charitable event as well as a fun evening for some fellowship with members and their spouses.   We wish you a Blessed Christmas Season with your friends and families.


Merry Christmas

One more item – there will be a Christmas Food Box distribution taking place at St. Johns on Thursday December 19th at 10:00AM. This is in conjunction with the Hanover Township Food Pantry and sponsored in part by St. John’s. We are looking for volunteers to give out the turkey or ham and a meal box to each family that comes and we need your help. This is similar to the Township Thanksgiving Food Box distribution that was done last month. All volunteers should be at the Parish Center by 9:45 AM on the 19th. If you have any questions or wish to volunteer, please contact me @ 630.837.6500 x48 or e-mail me at Thanks and hope to see you there !!
