Posted by on Jun 2, 2016 in Updates

Sunday, May 15th was a beautiful day as Bishop Morales confirmed and received 25 new members into the life of St. John’s Parish!

Fr. Patrick Smith commented, “I want to thank everyone who made our Pentecost such a Spirit-filled occasion! Thanks to our altar guild team (Alison Hall and Lauren Daniels) who set up the sanctuary for us; to EllieObrock for the flowers; for the outstanding voices and commitment of our Cathedral Choir, all under the superb direction of Jillian Miller; ¬†for Laura Kammerer on the organ and piano; for Kent Kanauss and the 12th Street Brass Quintet; for Catherine and everyone who helped serve at the reception: Carol Carlson, Jo Kirlin, and Gail Vance. I also want to thank Fr. Waylon for preparing our adult confirmands, both through his Sunday morning class as well as the Saturday morning retreat.”

“As always, God continues to draw a wide variety of individuals to St. John’s, from a whole host of denominational backgrounds. But though we are all different, it is the one Holy Spirit, present in our midst and present in the souls of you, his radiant people, that continues to draw others to our family. What a great day, and what a great blessing to be a part of St. John’s!”
