Condolences… Our deepest sympathies are extended to the family of Sondra Lopez-Aguado, who passed away last Sunday, March 6 while staying in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Sondra was a long-time member of St. John’s and will be very sorely missed. Among her many activities she served on St. Johns vestry, was a member of the Daughters of the Holy Cross, a regular participant in the Wednesday evening Bible Study, and assisted the office in sending out birthday cards to all the parishioners. A memorial service will be held this Saturday, March 19th at 2:00 pm here at St. John’s.
New Outreach Coordinators Marty and Kendall Smith… Many thanks to Becca Stupfel for two faithful years of service as Outreach Committee Chair. Becca stepped down last August when her foot surgery was pending. We are very grateful to Marty and Kendall Smith for offering to take over as Outreach Coordinators. They are open to suggestions for new ideas, and will be asking for help getting our projects off the ground, so please offer them your support! Thank you Marty and Kendall!!
