175th Anniversary Planners Needed!
Each month, beginning in August of 2015 and ending in August of 2016 we will plan a variety of activities all our parish family might participate in: celebrations, prayer, service, outreach. We are forming committees to plan and organize these activities. An informal brainstorming meeting is being planned for Monday, September 29 at 7:30 pm in the Parish Office Meeting Rooms. Some people have received an emailed invitation to attend this meeting - if you have not, and wish to attend, please do so. Your insights and input are valuable to the success of our celebration.
