Starting the first weekend of October, Respect for Life month, we will be distributing baby bottles to our parishioners after mass. Please be generous and return them filled with cash, coins, or checks (made out to the Knights of Columbus). Bottles can be placed in the collection basket. This collection will benefit Precious Life and ELM (Every Life Matters). The collection will end the weekend of Thanksgiving. Thank you for your continued support.
ARISE TOGETHER IN CHRIST SEASON 5, the Final Season, has been delayed until the Easter Season of 2021. However, beginning the week of October 4, six Readings from the 4 completed seasons have been selected for those parishioners who would like to continue the Faith Sharing. I will have copies of the six sessions available in the vestibule of the Church for pick up, each Sat/Sunday. If Small Faith Sharing groups wish to continue to meet in the Church Hall, with Social distancing, we will have classrooms available for this. I would ask the Small Group Leaders from past sessions of Arise to contact me to let me know the day of the week and the time they would like to meet. Contact Sr. Linda at 934-0699.
THANK YOU to the team of people who clean the church each week. We are most grateful to walk into a beautifully cleaned church each weekend.
THANK YOU to all the men and women who assisted with the scrubbing and waxing of the Social Center. A beautiful job!
