Hope After the Storm: We are stronger together.

We would like to thank everyone who volunteered their time to help St. John XXIII Catholic Church to be up and running again. We are so blessed to have a wonderful Parish community and staff that is willing to give of themselves for the good of others.

We would also like to thank our President, the Governor, meteorologists, first responders, line men, law enforcement and volunteers who presented a united front before, during and after the hurricane. We are truly stronger together!
