Dedication of Togo West Parlor

March 3, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 12:45 pm

Following the 11:00 a.m. service, we will formally dedicate the Togo D. West, Jr. Parlor by unveiling a portrait of Togo that will now hang in the room where so many of the activities and social occasions he valued and participated in at St. John’s take place. Please plan to join us for this brief ceremony to honor Togo for his contributions to our parish, our community, and our nation. Togo greatly valued community service. To honor his memory, join us downstairs in the dining room following the ceremony to participate in Sandwich Sunday, as we seek to help feed those in our community who are hungry.
