I have a few very important updates to share with you.
The Core Team and I have felt the need for our office to be more intentional in our hospitality and welcome to visitors. As a result, we have decided to hire someone for a front desk position. We received several applications and after interviews, the hiring committee selected Rebecca Atkinson. She will begin on Tuesday, October 30. Please pray for her as she spends the first while learning her new job. She will be a support to Mary-Anne O’Connor, and for those dropping by the office on Tuesday through Friday Mornings.
Secondly, there will be a change in leadership for the music ministry at the Saturday 5pm Mass as of December 1/2, the first Sunday of Advent.
Mary Ann Foley has been providing music ministry at our parish for twenty years now, and I am grateful for her dedication to sacred music. May God bless her richly for her many years of ministry. Please be sure to thank her and show her your appreciation on November 24 during ‘Christ the King’ weekend.
Finally, special thanks to all who made the Bazaar and Bake Sale a great success. It was good to experience the joyful atmosphere of the weekend. This event always draws our parish community together. Our household enjoyed a wonderful apple pie! It was a great way to celebrate Miguel becoming an Acolyte. For the remainder of the year he will be distributing Holy Communion at Mass, among other duties at the altar. Congratulations Miguel!
May all the saints pray for you and your needs as we prepare to celebrate them on November 1st.
Yours in Christ,
