EXPRESSIONS OF DISCIPLESHIP – 2019/20 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL
If you have not yet responded to the 2019-20 CSA, please set aside a moment to prayerfully consider a gift amount that your means will permit. A total of $29,940 has been pledged from our parishioners representing 119 families. Our parish “fair share” responsibility for the coming year is $51,346. Thank you to all who have already pledged.
WINTER SAFETY Winter is here and while we try to keep the sidewalks and steps free from snow and ice as best we can, Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate! Please be careful when attending Mass here by staying on the main sidewalks. Also, PLEASE USE THE SIDEWALK AT THE RAMP ENTRANCE. There are always cars coming and going on the ramp so the safest place is the sidewalk at that entrance. If the weather changes quickly, there are shovels and salt containers at every entrance.
