The Rededication of the remodeled Saint John Church in October was a big event for the parish.

Principal Dan  Schuh said, “The church is very nice and different. There were things kept the same, but there were quite a few new things added. Father Jim came to Mrs. Jill Burke and me for their opinion on the remodel, as well as others in the Saint John community. I think there is a possibility that the remodel will bring new members because the church will definitely be nicer and that would be a factor.” 

Michael Apalatea from Mr. Brian Mariano’s seventh grade class said, “I like the changes a lot. I think they were very necessary for the church. I think ripping out the carpet and changing it to tile was a good idea. It’s good from an altar server’s perspective.” 

Christian Maillard from Mr. Mariano’s class said, “I also really like the changes. My favorite new thing added is the new pews, and the cushioned kneelers. Now my knees don’t hurt when we kneel.” 

Many things were changed throughout the whole church, including the pews and Stations of the Cross, the wall behind the altar and the seats in the back of the church. In addition, the carpet was replaced with tile. Everyone who was part of the decision feels fulfilled and happy with the remodel. This upgrade could be the future of Saint John.
