We are seeking new ministers to help serve at the Masses. Additional Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Servers, Ushers, Lectors and Rosary Leaders are all needed to make a complete rotation of dates that people are assigned to serve. We are very grateful to those that have been serving and continue to serve. However, more parishioners are needed. We ask that you prayerfully consider serving in one or more positions. Training will be provided and the scheduler will work with you to allow you to serve on the days that work best for you. If you have any questions, please check with Fr. John or Fr. Jean Baptiste.

FINAL WEEKEND - Food Drive: The CCD classes and the Stonewall Branch #116 of Catholic Life Insurance are collecting food to benefit those in our community. Non-perishable goods are being accepted through this weekend. The collection box is in the entrance of church.
The Second Collection next weekend is for the Campaign for Human Development. Over 46 million people in the United States live in poverty. This collection supports programs to empower people to identify and address the obstacles they face as they work to lift themselves out of poverty. By supporting this collection you give people a hand up, not a hand out. Thank you.
