On Tuesday, October 27th, we will hold a Dress Down Day for Cross Catholic Outreach. Every year, thousands of poor children experience Christmas without hope. Burdened by poverty, their parents are simply too poor to provide anything but the most basic necessities. The gifts brought in by our St. John students will be packed in Boxes of Joy to show God’s unconditional love and spark the joy every child should experience at Christmas. More importantly, they are symbolic of God’s greatest gift, his son Jesus Christ. See Gift Ideas.

Third and Fourth Grade will bring School Supplies
