O Christmas Tree, Bring a family ornament for thee!
NEW THIS YEAR - Families are encouraged to bring in an ornament that represents their family and hang it on one of the trees in the Gathering Space. The trees will stay up until Epiphany (January 6th). You may hang your family's ornament before and after Mass or drop them off at the Parish Office or the St. Matthew School Office during weekday business hours. Questions? Call the Parish Office 435-6811. Any guesses on who will be hanging this ornament? (pictured)
CALLING ALL COOKS!
A family has recently moved into an Ecumenical Partnership for Housing (EPH) home in our parish neighborhood. We would like to take this opportunity to provide some meals for them, a working mom and her five children.
We hope to provide 2 freezable main dishes per week. We are looking for enough volunteers to make one entree (casserole, crock pot dinner or pot of soup) every month. If you are interested in this “5 More” opportunity, please contact Ginger Micksch at 491-9755. Thank you!
Pictures from Mortell Studio are here!
Pictures from Mortell Studio are ready to be picked up at the Parish Office during normal office hours. Note: the new directory itself will be ready sometime in early 2018.
