St. John XXIII College Connection

… Remembering and encouraging our members in college!  This ministry is our way of communicating with the college students from our parish. This communication happens twice a year and involves sending a “shoe box care package” to our students before exam time each semester.

There are two ways you can help:

  1. Make a monetary donation to help defray the cost of postage to mail these packages. Checks can be made payable to “St. John XXIII” and placed in an envelope marked “College Connection”. Donations can be placed in the collection baskets, mailed to the Faith Formation Office, and you can make a donation online HERE.
  2. Choose several items and put them in the box in the Church gathering area, drop them off at the parish office, or the Faith Formation office. Please indicate the items are for College Connection. Examples of appropriate items include microwave popcorn, ramen noodles, granola bars, wrapped candy, prayer cards, etc. Please AVOID:  Any heavy items, perishable items, items larger than a shoebox, or any medications.

Thanks to everyone who submitted names and donated items or money. We sent over 60 boxes this year!

​Please contact the Faith Formation office at 262-284-2102 or email if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!


If you have a son or daughter from the parish in college whether living at home or away and would like them to receive a care package, please provide us with their current mailing address via email, postal mail or call them into the Faith Formation Office, or drop them into the Sunday Collection basket labeled “College Connection.” Submit Address Here
