Stewardship (Giving)

Volunteers Needed

We are in need of volunteers to bring Holy Communion to the homebound. Visiting the sick is a corporal work of mercy and often the only contact with the parish a homebound person has. Anyone interested in carrying out this ministry should contact Judy Hartman at 984‐8003 or jhartma2002@yahoo.com.
