New Parish Office Forming


      During the upcoming summer, we hope to establish a Pastoral Ministry Office, which will oversee the  adult religious opportunitiesthat are offered at St. John  Bosco Parish. Some of these will be Days of Reflection, Retreats, Study Groups, and other enrichment opportunities . This office will also have programs for Young Adults, Teens and Grade School Children. It will include the Parish School of Religion, the Children's , and hopefully some exciting events to foster the Gospel. This will be a " work in process" so there will be some growing strains.

      Cindy Meirink has agreed to become a full-time Pastoral Associate who will coordinate the adventure. She holds a BSN in Nursing from St. Louis University, and her background as a nurse and educator will be a great advantage. Amy Cutrell will assist Cindy in many ways. Amy is a graduate of St. Louis University with a Master's deree in Public Administration and is responsible for the initiation and coordination of the Children's Mass.


    We ask your prayers and support as we attemt this new program.
