Sacristan Garden

What is the Sacristan Garden?  It is a garden or gardens planted by the sacristan – or, in our case, members of the parish – full of beautiful plants and flowers with Biblical meaning.  St. John is blessed with a group who feels strongly about sharing our Sacristan Garden with others, especially children.  All are welcome to help work in the garden itself, and all are welcome to cut the flowers and bring them into the church.  Contact Sarah Ortwein or Lynda Spinolo with any questions.
