Thursday, St. John Parish will host a commemoration ceremony honoring the resiliency of the community.

The event at the St. John Community Center in Laplace begins at noon and the New Wine Christian Fellowship is hosting an event Thursday night in to reflect on the storm.

The service begins at 7pm.
