Annual Christmas Toy Drive

Don't forget those who are most in need. Many families are faced with the hardship of not be able to provide even a little bit of Christmas Joy for their children.

Again this year, we are calling on the kindness and generosity of the parishioners of St. John Vianney Parish to give to our Annual Toy Collection for the Southwest Community Enrichment Center, West Philadelphia. We are asking for donations for children of all ages, babies through adolescents.

You may leave your wrapped or unwrapped gifts in the parish hall through December 17th. This Christmas, bring joy to others with an act of kindness.

Mondays, 10:00 A.M - Noon

SJV The Knitting/Crochet Circle

The knitting/crochet circle is creating children's hats, scarfs and the like, to donate to this year's Christmas Bazaar.
We meet every Monday from 10:00 to 12:00 at the Parish House next to Saint John Vianney Church. Both beginners as well as experienced knitters and crocheters are invited. Learn new techniques while helping a worthy cause. Bring your yarn and needles and we will keep you in stitches. Questions? Call Betty Devereaux at 610 574 7390.
