St. Nick’s Workshop

In the fall of 2022, St. John gratefully received a $25,000 grant to invest in building St. Nick’s Workshop, a one-of-a-kind, interactive Catholic children’s museum here on St. John’s campus. We’ve hired professionals at Our Sunday Visitor to help guide the development of this project aimed at bringing families closer to the Lord through fun, hands-on activities. St. Nick’s Workshop will not only help inspire children to engage with their faith but will strengthen and encourage parents in their roles as their children’s primary catechists. Our team aims to have a prototype of this museum ready to open by December 6, 2024.

We’ll keep you updated as we make progress towards establishing what might be the first Catholic children’s museum in the United States!

National Eucharistic Pilgrimage

St. John is thrilled to be a stop on the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage this summer! This historic Eucharistic procession across America features four different routes, all converging at the end in Indianapolis for the 10th National Eucharistic Congress. The Archdiocese of Baltimore is featured on the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Route, the Eastern arm of the pilgrimage. Throughout their journey, they will be making stops at various religious sites.

St. John will have the honor of being a stop on the evening of Wednesday, June 5. We will host the Perpetual Pilgrims and seminarians from the Archdiocese of Baltimore for the following events:

Eucharistic Procession | 5pm
Join a Eucharistic procession from St. John to the historic cemetery in Downtown Westminster. The Procession will then return to St. John and end with Benediction.
Total distance: 2.2 miles

Cookout | 6:30pm (following the Procession)
Enjoy food trucks and more with the pilgrims in the St. John parking lot! Bring your own blankets and chairs. This dinner is free with free-will offerings accepted.
