St. John's House
St. John's House is home to Brendan, David and James, young men with intellectual disabilities, who are assisted in their daily living by in-house staff from Jubilee Association of Maryland. They live on Harmon Road and are cherished members of our parish community, attending 12PM Sunday Mass with their caregivers and often present at other parish events.
Tuesday Night Dinners
Our parish family has begun a new initiative for St. John's House. We provide dinner every Tuesday evening for Brendan, David, James and their wonderful caregivers. Can you make a home-cooked meal or provide a commercially-prepared one and deliver it to their home on Harmon Road? All parishioners are welcome to participate by visiting the Take Them a Meal website to sign up to provide a meal. Enter the last name St. John's and the password SJH (case and spaces matter).
Join the St. John's House Committee
The St. John's House Committee provides friendship and resources to the young men and their caregivers in the house. Together, we offer to do the extra things that make a house a home: decorate for the holidays, bake gluten-free cookies, mow the lawn, clean the gutters, and provide other neighborly help for our St. John's House friends. A special thanks to SJE parishioner Frank Caveliere and the Knights of Columbus Rosensteel Council who have joined us in this work of grace. To offer your charisms, gifts or resources to the St. John's House Ministry, contact Margie at email@example.com

St. John's House Committee hosted the 3rd Annual Neighborhood Party in October 2015 for the residents' families, friends and neighbors on the Harmon Road block. A great time was had by all!
St. John's House was developed by Rosaria Communities, an affiliated corporation of the Archdiocese of Washington, working to construct or renovate housing to provide independent living opportunities for individuals who have intellectual disabilities. Rosaria works to assure a living environment of comfort and care, in which the spiritual needs of the residents will be supported by an involved Catholic community.
