Everyone at Mass this past weekend had a chance to see at least some of the of video that presents the potential plans for the church entry and narthex. The Committee is looking forward to hearing from you, so be sure to offer your feedback.
We are looking for more people to join us for Tuesday's Eucharistic Adoration. We invite you to reflect on our need to have someone present while Jesus resides in the monstrance. You are asked to commit to just one hour each week in the presence of Christ. Thank you to all who honor the Lord in this way. Contact Gail Hankins for additional information or to sign up.
Time to Clean Up for Some Worthy Causes
The Mission Garage Sale and St. Vincent de Paul groups have joined together to help with your spring clean-up! You can bring your gently used items to the Krumpe Center during the week of May 1 (M-W, 7-8 PM; Th, all day) for the Mission Garage Sale.
The Garage Sale takes place from 9-1 on Friday, May 5 and 9-12 on Saturday, May 6.
The St. Vincent de Paul truck will be on parish grounds and open for business before and after all Masses on May 6 and 7 as well as at 3:30 pm on Sunday, May 7 for any additional items you would like to donate.
So, here is your chance to get that garage/basement/closet in tip top shape. Thank you for participating in with donations and sales!
