Help us make our home sparkle!
Recently a group of ladies answered an
ad placed in the bulletin to come and
help clean the Church. Well this group of mighty ladies did an awesome job and have vowed to
continue to make our Church shine brighter. They hope you noticed! Would you like to help as well?
if you would like to join them next time, contact Olga Venegas at the Church office and volunteer, you can also help when you come to church. Pick up the Misal/Song Books put them in their place at the end of service, pick up any trash or items left
behind etc. We appreciate your help.
Over the past few months we have collected a few items that have been left behind in Church, such as glasses, umbrellas, keys, sweaters, etc. If you have misplaced any such items, please check with the Church Office. We will hold on to these items for the next two weeks and if no one claims them, we will donate and or discard.
Congratulations !! Fr. Elkin Sierra
Remember the seminarian that was with us a few years ago and touched all our lives! Elkin was ordained as a priest of the Archdiocese of
Miami, this Saturday, May 11th. As all newly ordained priests, Elkin will celebrate his first Mass at his home parish. We will keep you posted on when he will be preaching at one of our Masses. Please keep Elkin in your prayers, we are thankful for his vocation!
