Thanks to everyone who donated money, coats and blankets for the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Several members of our parish delivered these items to Sacred Heart Parish in Pine Ridge, SD and Our Lady of the Sioux Parish in Oglalla, SD. Our parishioners also cooked and served breakfast for the parishioners at Our Lady of the Sioux and handed out food gift bags. Your generous donations help provide for the continuing needs of these communities.

"St. John's Parish Partners has established a relationship with two parishes on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation - Sacred Heart and Our Lady of the Sioux. Our ministry, in the past, has consisted of a coat & clothing drive for Sacred Heart, and gift food bags as well as food for the food pantry at Our Lady of the Sioux. Members of the parish usually visit the reservation once a year in November. Each year we are blessed to receive more inspiration from the Lakota people than we could ever offer through our gifts.
