Blessed is the Father who lets the Lord be his guiding hand, whose faith brings his family courage, whose wisdom comes from God, and whose children still stand and honor him.

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow” ~ Audrey Hepburn Our church and grounds should be an example for our hopefully re-emerging neighborhood!! In the spirit and hope of this, Saint John Kanty Parish will be one of many sites for the 2nd Annual East Side Garden Walk (the east side is a BIG area!), taking place on Saturday, July 20 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Our small gardening committee has been working for a number of years to beautify the grounds, and the gardens in our ‘back yard’ are something you should take a little extra time before or after Mass to look at, and perhaps even spend a few minutes reflecting on the beauty of God’s creation. The garden group is on site Saturday mornings and would love to have a few extra hands for garden maintenance, if you could spare even one hour, but even if you cannot help, please take the time to see our ‘hidden gardens’!
