Blood Drive
Blood is a precious gift and giving it truly reflects a personal commitment to live the Gospel. It is needed for emergencies and for people who have cancer, blood disorders, sickle cell, anemia and other illnesses. Some people need regular blood transfusions to live. Our parish sponsors Red Cross blood drives several times a year and volunteers who help coordinate the drive and those that give blood are a special blessing to our parish and those who receive this precious gift of life.

The St. John Eudes Parish Swim Team is open to children ages 4-14 who attend St. John Eudes School or whose family is registered in the parish. The swim team season begins in August and lasts through the fall as the team competes at meets organized through the San Fernando Valley Catholic Swim League. Coaches evaluate all new swimmers to determine if they are strong enough swimmers to keep up with the practices and participate in the meets. A scholarship is awarded to graduating eight graders at the end of the season. All swimmers must register and pay a registration fee (except 14 year olds). Participation on the swim team is a wonderful way to support the parish, meet new friends, and bring families together in a spirit of good-hearted competition and team cooperation.

Women’s Ministry
The St. John Eudes Women’s Ministry is dedicated to building a feeling of fellowship among the women of our parish as well as among the women of the community at large. The way we accomplish this, is by sponsoring an annual ladies’ high tea. Women from our parish and beyond, volunteer to create and design beautiful table settings to accommodate their own guests or to invite those ladies that purchase tickets to share their table. All year long the women anticipate the arrival of the next tea and wait for an item to spark their creativity and inspire the concept of their next table. Women of all cultures and faiths are represented at these teas. In these times of casual living and love for the convenience of paper plates, few people take the time to entertain lavishly; so experiencing teas such as ours is truly nostalgic of the traditions of the past and highly praised.
