OCTOBER IS RESPECT
A Prayer of Reverence for Life from the Marriage and Family Life Office:
Lord and giver of all life, help us to value each person, created in love by you. In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts to promote the dignity and value of all human life, born and unborn. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
The recent announcement seeking volunteers for decorating the church at Christmas and Easter has resulted in several people stepping up to make this happen. We are still in need of 6-8 people. We are hoping for at least one volunteer that has some experience in the area. Please contact the parish office if you can help out with this project.
