Join us for an Informational Potluck on Sunday, November 1, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the St. John the Evangelist School Gym in Rochester, MN.
Listen to a presentation from Steve and Brenda Deick and their family, who spent 4 months in South Sudan building the school, hiring teachers, and making sure everything would be ready for when classes started in June.
Hear beautiful, South Sudanese music by the St. Josephine Bakhita Singers from St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church.
Talk to the board members and other volunteers who have traveled to South Sudan and seen our school in person, and get all your questions answered during the Q&A.
Bring a dish to pass and enjoy a meal amongst your fellow parishioners, supporters, and others who have assisted us in our journey, whether that be through volunteer work, financial assistance, or prayer. (Beverages, plates, flatware, and napkins will be provided. Suggested dish type to bring by first letter of last name: A-K main dish, L-S salad/side, T-Z dessert)
Unlike our Benefit Banquet in the spring, this Potluck is informational instead of having a focus on fundraising. Attendance is free and children are very welcome! We would like to give everyone an update in person about how everything is going, and share our joy and thanks with all those who have assisted us in any way.
