The St. John Bosco celebration is becoming an annual tradition and the 2017 party was very successful. The feast of St. John falls on Tuesday, January 31, but we celebrated a couple of days early to accommodate parishioners and especially our youth.
As with recent years, Fathers David and Crager joined forces to provide a great party; and to showcase the work the Salesian Missions do in Florida and other areas. The celebration started with 10:00 Sunday Mass at St. Francis and then members of both parishes moved to the Parish Hall. At the hall, our youth group and Knights of Columbus served pizza, drinks and then .... ICE CREAM! Our older youth assisted with getting ice cream into the bowls—and then everyone created their own artistic delight by adding syrups, sprinkles, peanuts and whipped cream. Several colorful, small faces were testament to how good that stuff was!!!
