Needed:  lay Eucharistic ministers – We have a number of parishioners who cannot attend Sunday services yet still want to receive Holy Communion once in a while.  We need licensed people who can make home visits and administer the sacraments.  We can arrange the appropriate training.  If you are interested, please call the office. 624-3883, or call Claudia: 373-5069.

Visiting preacher celebrants in September – Please welcome our visiting clergy:  September 13 Vincent Raj; September 20 Joe Patronik; September 27 Charles Stacy.

Have a favorite hymn?  We want to know what your favorite hymns are.  Write down the hymn numbers of three choices and give them to the usher as you leave.  We will make a list of the top ten and start incorporating them into the service each Sunday.  We will also be trying different hymns at the time of the offertory.
