If you have helped in the past and do not want your name on the new schedule, please call the parish office. If you have never helped before and desire to now participate, please let us know as well. We need many volunteers! Training for the various positions will be offered. This is another sign of getting back “to normal!” This schedule would run from September 11-12 through November 27-28.
