Saint John's Parish participated in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life
at the Clayton 2017 event.  It began at 10:00AM on Saturday 8/12/17!
Relay for Life is a unique 24 hour celebration of cancer survivorship and a tribute to those
who have lost their battle. We celebrated all day long, walking our laps, providing fun filled
games, auctioning baskets, holding bocce challenges, and being entertained with
inspirational speakers and local bands. Things quieted down towards evening when we held
our solemn Luminaria Ceremony followed by our eucharist service at the St. John's tent/site.
Then folks settled in for our symbolic walk throughout the night.
