 Seminarian Collection—Thank You

Thank you to all who contributed to the Collection for the Seminarian Education Fund. Our parish family generously donated $1,144.00. These gifts will provide funds for tuition, room and board, books, health care and retreats for our seminarians. Your investment in our seminarians is a prayerful commitment to your Church and to your brothers and sisters in Christ. If you have not made your gift, please drop your envelope into the offertory basket today or next weekend. Please continue to pray for our seminarians, for members of our clergy, and for vocations to the priesthood.

 DPAA Pledges

We still have $2,393.00 in pledges that have not been paid. Our parish will not receive rebates until the pledges are paid in full. It would be appreciated if the unpaid balance could be paid as soon as possible. Thank you.

Food Pantry

For the month of November the Food Pantry needs any non-perishable canned items. Please be generous.

Virtus Bulletins

Please make sure you read your November bulletin to keep your Virtus status current. Thank you to all who work to create a safe environment in our Parish.

As the liturgical year ends, the focus of all three readings is the End Times and the Second Coming of Jesus.
