truly miss you all. Thank you also for the nice gift! Very
unexpected and much appreciated.
to announce that Deacon Mickey Hawkins will be taking my place. Deacon
Hawkins has been offered and has accepted the position of Business Manager here
at St. Mary’s. He brings many years of experience and will be a great fit
for St. Mary’s. His previous job was at St. Joan of Arc as Director of
Finance and Development. Before that he was responsible for turning PIMEMissionaryCenter in Newark into Sts. Peter and PaulRetreatCenter. His start date is this Monday, October 4th.
Please extend Deacon Mickey a kind and warm St. Mary’s welcome!
want to let you know that work has begun on the platform where the tabernacle
is sitting. The carpet will be removed and the platform will be built to
match that of Mary and Joseph. The platform will have steps that enable
easier access into the tabernacle and the wood will replace the carpet making
it more fitting for our sanctuary. Again, the goal is to get new carpet
in the sanctuary, but first we need to get carpet off of virtual
surfaces. Your donations are making this work possible. We are still in
need of donations to make this work and future work possible. Please
consider contributing to St. Mary’s as we continue to beautify our church.
