First Flea Market of 2 0 1 3

Saturday, February 2nd (9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.)
We always have a need for volunteers and we will be accepting gently used household items (no clothes), the day of the sale ONLY. We ask that no items be brought to the Rectory or left outside, and we are unable to do pick-ups. Should you wish further details concerning this, please see Dan Ormsby, our coordinator for the monthly Flea Market.


As shared in previous bulletins, renovations of the basement hall ceiling (known as Cameron Hall) have officially begun. Chuck Ormsby is our project manager for this particular endeavor. Keeping our building in good working order will only support our parish for the next hundred years. We are trying to do these projects at as low a cost as possible and we are grateful for your prayers and support.

Book Club (every Second Saturday)
has resumed and will once again take place every second Saturday – with the next one being scheduled for February 9th after the 5:00 p.m. Mass. If interested, please call the Rectory and leave your name and telephone number.
