Special report from the St. John in the Wilderness parish

It seems the parish has three new parishioners. Sister Carol reports that on one of the doors to the church at Easter time, they hung a fake wreath. It seems that mother robin took a liking to that wreath and made her nest there laying three eggs. Two weeks went by and guess what? There are now three of the cutest little robins in that nest looking for food. You never know who is going to make use of what is available.
