2017 SJV First Communicants and Families, you are invited to participate in

 The Art of Adoration: building friendships and making monstrances with residents of

St. Ann’s Home in Grand Rapids

Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 1:30 p.m.

 

Parents and students will be working side by side with residents in St. Ann’s spacious Holy Family Center as they complete this art project, enjoy conversation and celebrate this unique participation in the Body of Christ with a sweet treat. Each student and resident will make and decorate a paper monstrance to take home, and students will be asked to complete additional ones for distribution to other residents who may like to have one but are unable to attend. All materials will be provided.

Excited about making this beautiful reminder of the real and true presence of Jesus among us in the Holy Eucharist and brightening the lives of the elderly in our community? Please RSVP to Marty Best at 616-724-3132 or e-mail mbest@stjohnvianney.net by Friday, January 13th (a count is needed to determine the amount of supplies). Anyone interested in carpooling and willing drivers (leaving from SJV) should let Marty know by this date as well.
