Dear Parishioners, Alumni and Friends,

Thanks to 385+ Alumni and Friends who attended our First Annual Take Me Back to Manayunk All Class Reunion. It was a wonderful gathering for our church and community. With your support, $18,000.00 was raised for the Friends of Saint John the Baptist, a parish and community organization founded to raise funds to repair, renovate and maintain our beautiful church. The proceeds from our All Class Reunion will go directly towards some of the primary and urgent repairs of the Bell Tower and supporting buttresses on Cresson Street. If you could not attend the reunion and would like to support our fundraising efforts, tax-deductible donations are being accepted at: Friends of St. John the Baptist, 146 Rector Street, Philadelphia, PA 19127. Follow our Facebook page, and support the events and activities of St. John the Baptist Parish in Manayunk.
