Revitalization of the Church Library

Do you have a love for books and reading? Then, you may be interested in helping catalog the church library. Parish member Jim Orefice is leading the revitalization effort as St. John's Librarian. He will begin this project on Monday, November 10. The project includes taking an inventory of our current books, re-cataloging them using a software database, and relabeling the sections. Over time, we will be able to promote a user-friendly library, full of great authors and content, for the parish to enjoy.

If you would like to volunteer to help with this project, please contact Jim at
or call the parish office at 799.4767.
