In the last two years, the flower beds surrounding our church and school have been cared for by parish volunteers who have “adopted” the various beds. We have all appreciated watching these beds come to life under their green thumbs.
We are now in need of someone who can take over the coordination of these volunteer gardeners. The job would entail getting parishioners to adopt a bed (most are already spoken for), coordinating mulch delivery, and then communicating with the gardeners about mulching and fall maintenance.
For more information, call Dave or Muriel Graham
444-8382 or the church office 444-3524.
2016 Annual Diocesan Appeal
Thanks to all who made a pledge to the ADA. We have 230 pledges of $49,615 toward our goal of $112,890.
A gift to the ADA, no matter how great or small, can go a long way. A pledge of $10 or $20 a month can add up. Even a one-time gift is helpful to the cause. To those who have contributed, we are most grateful. If you have not yet made a gift to the ADA, we invite you to do so today. Pledge cards are in the pews. Every dollar raised to make our goal support important diocesan services and every dollar over our goal comes back to our parish.
