Summer 2022: Habitat For Humanity Adventure!

The Social Justice Committee is offering the opportunity to get involved with Habitat For Humanity for six weeks this summer.  If you have been hesitant to get started or are a veteran Habitater, now is the time to make it easy on yourself and join other parishioners in this adventure. We are joining the Saint Joseph home build for six Wednesday afternoons from 12:30 to 4:30 this summer. If interested, please sign up on the bulletin board at the Parish Center or call the Roske home at 363-8687. Join us!

 

Our parish works with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) in a microfinance program through which people learn how to make small loans. These loans enable borrowers to start businesses that support them and their families. By June 2018, St. John the Baptist Parish had contributed more than $9,300 towards enabling the growth of our project.
