Fourth Sunday of Advent
The St. John's Shelter Board of Directors extends our heartfelt gratitude to all of the generous donors who contributed to the Shelter residents Christmas gift fund. The 18 Shelter residents - five families made up of 7 adults (one a grandmother) and 11 children - ranging from 1 month to 16 year old twins - will most certainly enjoy a happier holiday filled with more joy and more peace because of the blessings you've so graciously and generously shared. Wishing you and all of yours a Very Merry Christmas and Great Joy!
