The April Women’s Retreat will meet on Saturday, April 13, at 9:30 am in the church library. The program will feature Mary Burnell, a staff member of the Lansdale Montessori School. For thirty years the Lansdale Montessori School has shared St. John’s classrooms and hallways. Have you ever wondered what makes a “Montessori” school?  How can a community of 3-to-6-year-old children engage in independent learning and discovery, caring for their environment, themselves, and each other?  Learn what makes Montessori special!  Light refreshments will be served. All women are welcome!
