E-Bulletin - September 30, 2019
It seems like September has come and gone and any hopes that a "feeling-of-summer" would stay are lingering with this short spell of warmer weather that we have today and tomorrow. Otherwise, Autumn is here. We want to thank everyone who came out to our fundraising dinner this past Saturday with the golf outing and dinner at The Brickhouse. It was a great time!
Thank you too to everyone who supported the second collection for Fr. Matthias' parish in Uganda this past Saturday and Sunday. We are grateful for the strong relationship we have held with him over the years and continue to have in the years to come.
Life in the parish keeps rolling along. Here are a few highlights for the week ahead!

Come and bring your dogs, cats, snakes, lizards, or other domesticated creatures to receive a blessing on the steps of the church. All are part of God's creation and in God's love and care!
Trunk or Treat?
