St. John the Baptist shares Christmas Meal and Fellowship with Area Veterans - 12/18/2021

On Saturday, December 18, the Sunday School of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church in Edwardsville, PA participated in their yearly Christmas Dinner tradition. The students and teachers, augmented by many parishioners, prepared, delivered and shared a full Christmas dinner to the St. Hedwig’s Veteran Center just down the street from the parish. Fr. Michael Evans led the gathering in prayer, after which the meal was served. It is always a high point of the season to break bread and share in fellowship with John, Robert, David and the other veterans, and an event the entire parish looks forward to every year. Following dinner the veterans were presented with Christmas gifts and grooming kits provided by the parishioners.
