"Good" Grief

It is “Good” to know you do not have to journey alone through a time of grief. Although no one can experience your loss, gathering with others in faith can add a measure of support and comfort to the difficult road ahead. Please register with Anita, 864-4712, so space and materials are adequate. Tuesdays, 4:30pm-6pm, March 24, 31, April 21, 28, May 12, 19, and June 9 (potluck and closing service)

New Anointing Schedule

Please see the new anointing schedule as well as a memo regarding the anointing ministry.

Help feed the hungry

Our food pantry is in desperate need of food donations. Please bring non-perishable food items to mass or by the Parish Center. Our social justice ministry oversees the distribution to various individuals and families in our parish and the surrounding community. We are also in need of meatloaves and brownies which are sent to the Salvation Army Shelter downtown. Please bring both items frozen to the Parish Center.

Children's Rosary Group Continues

On the first Saturday of every month, all parishioners are invited to pray the rosary, especially children ages 4-14, who will be invited to lead the prayer.  We gather in Classrooms C/D at 4pm.  No experience or materials needed—we will provide everything!  (And don’t be nervous—children who don’t want to read out loud won’t be forced to!)     For more info, contact Joan Nelson.
