St. John the Evangelist Spring Fling!
Over 450 parishioners and community members attend this evening each year! There is no gala that I am aware of in St. John of this caliber and magnitude.
Even though we are a large parish of people who attend different Masses and programs throughout the week, Spring Fling gives us the opportunity to meet people that we might not ever get to know during our normal parish activities. It helps to keep us close and to maintain that small parish feel despite our growing size. It also allows us to reach out to members of the community, Catholic or not, to enjoy fellowship with us as we are all part of the larger St. John/Tri-Town community.
I hope to see you all on April 26th!
