Laundry Love: Join St. John’s the last Wednesday of every month (August 28) at Los Lavanderos, 4371 Melrose Ave., for one of the diocese’s most creative and meaningful ministries. We wash and dry laundry for people with financial needs. There are fewer things more important to someone self-image than clean clothes—and it is so often overlooked among service providers. See Deacon Fernando for if you have any questions.
