St. John the Evangelist Celebrates ‘Keep Kids Safe Month’

Bikers Against Child Abuse displayed their big bikes at St. John’s community fair on April 2.

More than 200 people came out as St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church kicked off “Keep Kids Safe Month” on April 2 with a free Community Information Fair.

                                  Community members enjoy St. John’s fair.

Many organizations participated including New York Life Insurance who offered free IDs for children complete with photographs, fingerprints, and lamination; LAPD officers who shared safety strategies when traveling the streets of L.A. and  LAFD staff who allowed youngsters to have their photos taken on the ladder trucks.

The Bikers Against Child Abuse motorcycle group rode in on massive bikes and proved to be a big hit with both youth and parents. This organization serves nationally and internationally as first responders when children are in trouble.

In addition, FBI agents shared information on internet safety, the Department of Mental health discussed family services, and St. Vincent de Paul, National Council on Missing and Exploited Children, Safeguard the Children Committee, and the Anti Defamation League all provided valuable resources for parents and guardians.

              Cheerleaders from Transfiguration Catholic Church perform for the crowd.

The children’s choirs from St. John the Evangelist and St. Jerome, and the cheerleaders from Transfiguration Catholic Churches entertained the crowd.


According to a spokesperson, “St. John’s is looking forward to making this an annual event and judging from the turnout and community interest, we believe it will be a most welcomed annual event.”
