Please share the link to the donate button to give directly to St. John to help offset reduced income and help with rebuilding costs.
The school is currently an empty shell. The demolition phase should be completed by February and the rebuilding phase will begin. Contractors have confidence at the moment the school will be able to return by the start of the 2019-2020 school year. Wonderful news!
The parish hall is being completely gutted. The roof, ceiling, floor and kitchen will be replaced…mostly out of pocket, but it will be worth it. Stay tuned.
Please keep our diocesan and parish staffs in your prayers, as well as the first responders working the recovery and relief. I will do my best to update you in the future, but please understand that we are all limited in resources and communication in the wake of this disaster.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Kevin McQuone
