Dear Beloved God,

I will be away February 13-28.  Nancy will be monitoring the church phone while I am gone.  If you have a pastoral need, contact her or Father John.

Minutes from our parish meeting will be sent under separate cover.  In the meantime, here are some highlights:

  • Frederick Pride is June 22 – if you wish to be part of the planning committee, contact Nancy
  • The budget passed!

Grace is sufficient, so we can say in confidence “Here I am, send me.”  Click here to read or listen to the sermon.

Grace and Peace,
