"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.
