Children’s bulletins are available at the entrance of the church. If you would like to help with Children’s Worship, please contact Jennifer Suttie at firstname.lastname@example.org or 831-521-9654.

This is a chance to ask questions and share your ideas.

Donations to the Lenten Giving Boxes go to St. Patrick’s School, Haiti, which keeps going thanks to the contributions of many. Their progress is good but their need is great.
Lenten gifts of new socks, mufflers, warm sweaters, and jackets warm the hearts and bodies of those in need. Boxes are in the church.
