PARISH GROUPS

Piecemakers

We encourage and promote the art of quilting.  Each year we make a quilt to raffle off with the proceeds going to Saint John's School Endowment Fund.  We are an ecumenical service oriented club and make "Caring Quilts" for Elizabeth House and Waunakee Neighborhood Connection. Our fall quilt show has a silent auction and quilt sale and the proceeds go to local charities.  For information about our quilt club you can contact Doris Ast at 849-5482.

Bakers for Parish Projects

Saint John's baker provides a variety of baked goods for special parish events such as baking cookies for college students. If you love to bake and would like to share you talent please call the parish office. 

Scrip

The Scrip program is one of the largest fund-raisers for Saint John's Parish.  Scrip can be either gift cards or gift certificates.  You can purchase groceries, gasoline, clothing, everyday items and restaurant gift cards through Saint John Parish. Saint John receives a percentage on each gift card purchased. This is a wonderful and easy way to help raise money for our parish and school.  Team Captains are always needed and welcomed. Please contact Kim Piazza to sign up.

Funeral Dinners

This group prepares a meal for families and friends of a deceased member of Saint John's .  The meal is served after the funeral Mass in the school cafeteria. If you would like to help out please contact the parish office.

Prayer Chain

Saint John's Prayer Network has been established to assist those in needs through the power of prayer.  Members of the prayer ministry are divided into prayer teams and contact one another when a prayer request is received.  The use of names is optional.  Members are always welcome. Call the parish office with your prayer requests.
