We are washed clean through the waters of baptism, and daily we are invited to renew those baptismal promises—to return to the right path and to accept the forgiveness of Christ. God patiently waits for us to approach that fountain of mercy so that we can become whole and holy.
For our registered parishioners who have been away for the holidays and have not had the opportunity to pick up their Stewardship campaign envelope please so this weekend. The envelopes will be located on a table at the rear of Church in alphabetical order. All envelopes that remain after this weekend will be mailed.
To those who have picked up their letter please return your response to the parish office as soon as possible and thank you to those who have responded to date.
