Good afternoon,

Thank you so much for your continued support of the Metropolitan Ministries Food Drive! Our cart is overflowing, and we hope to continue to fill it one more time! We look forward to seeing you tomorrow (Friday, November 15) at Parent Chapel, coffee and pastries to be served immediately following the chapel service. We are not going to have parent chapel on Friday, November 22, due to the K(5) Thanksgiving play that morning and Lower Division has joint Eucharist (Grades 1-8 attend chapel together). Parents are welcome to attend joint Eucharist. Thanks to Julie Harrington for hosting our coffee! And, we look forward to all the fun activities at the Barnes and Noble Book Fair this week! We hope you can bring your child and your family to help support SJE! Have a wonderful and beautiful weekend!

Take care,

The Dads’ Club Metropolitan Ministries food drive, in partnership with St. John’s Church, began Monday, 11/4, and ends Friday, 11/15. Please help feed families in need this holiday season! Bins are placed in front of the Primary Division for easy drop-off.
