St John the Baptist School & Parish Recognized with Award

Congressman John Kline awarded St. John the Baptist School and parish with the "Star of the North Award" last week, a recognition of the
Catholic school and community's commitment to helping others through service. The Vermillion, MN group participated in a food drive
prior to Thanksgiving together with the Franciscan Brothers of the Peace in St. Paul, MN who distributed the 42 bags of groceries through their
outreach ministries and the 550 people they serve each Thanksgiving Day.  Representatives from the school's 5th grade class accepted 
the award on behalf of the group at a ceremony and reception in Lakeville. Receiving the award, and pictured with Congressman Kline, were (from left to right) Christian Strommen, Cade Kasel, Brodie Ruper, and Andrew Reinardy.
