    serve those experiencing homelessness. You can help by inviting the homeless to be our guests at Room in the Inn, every Thursday night, from November-March, at the Ozanam Center (St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen), 1306 Monroe. We will be offering food and shelter to those in need of our aid. You can assist in this endeavor by pre-paring and serving dinner, sharing in fellowship, arrang-ing sleeping quarters or serving as a Laundry Angel. There is a job for everyone. Please stop by the Room in the Inn table in the Narthex, after all Masses this weekend. Or call Jim Burge at (901) 254-1595 for more information.

    Sacrament of Baptism Parents wishing to have a child (6 and under) baptized must be registered and active parishioners for a minimum of three (3) months prior to the date of baptism and are required to attend a Baptism Preparation Class prior to setting a date.
