We are raising funds to replace our security camera system which sustained unrepairable damage when the outside cameras were stolen. We have a security professional, from our sister St. Anne congregation, who has volunteered his time to install a new system. All we need is to raise the $1500 to pay for the new cameras. Tickets are $10. Drawing will be held in November.
More details coming soon!

You can use Zelle or SimpleGive to pay for the tickets!
It is that time of year again!

O God,

Remind us always to focus on our communities that are the bedrock of our lives and our Church. Give us the strength and determination and courage to always speak out when our communities come under attack. Inspire us to reach out to you for guidance and light as we search for and find effective ways to put our words into action.  

Thank you for the many blessings we receive, and may we always be guided by kindness and empathy.
