Christian Education Change
Christian Ed has moved from before the Sunday Mass to a time that may be more popular. We’re meeting Wednesday evenings at 6 pm for a Bible study of the Gospel according to St. Mark, and a light soup and bread supper accompanying. See you at six!
Hymnals Still Needed
We began a campaign a few months ago to purchase some new hymnals for our worship, as many of the ones we use are showing the signs of much love, just like the velveteen rabbit! They cost $29 each, but of course donations in any amount are welcome, just put "Hymnal" on the memo line of your check. Hymnals can be given as a memorial, too, please see Fr. Richard for details.
A tip of the biretta to Irene for patching up some of the hymnals that were falling apart!
