St John's New Baby Ministry
Congratulations, we at St John’s are so excited about the birth of your newborn child. We accompany you in this journey of parenthood and hold you close in prayer as you experience the wonder and joy of this new child. We look forward to seeing your little one grow in grace! Clergy are available for visits and would love to come and do a blessing with you and your family as you welcome your newborns into your home.
Please let us know if you are expecting, we look forward to holding you and your baby in our prayers. Once that new baby has arrived a member of our clergy team will arrange to come and do "Thanksgiving for the birth of a Child" liturgy with you at your home. The New Baby Ministry team stands ready to help you with a basket of goodies and new parenting answers. They will even arrange a Meal ministry drop off for you, if you so desire.
Our Angel Food Ministry is available to assist you in meals in these first weeks and we would love to share the joy of this new birth with the parish. Please contact Lisa Stone at (850) 222-2636 to help us assist you with preparations for baptism.
