Happenings @ St. David's

The readings from this past Sunday described Jesus as our Good Shepherd. Jesus is someone who protects, feeds, leads, guides, and comforts us. Jesus knows each of us and "calls us by name" and we are asked to listen for his voice and follow where he leads. Where is Jesus leading you? Where do you hear the voice of Jesus in your life?  

We hope you had a blessed Mother's Day weekend and hope to see you this week. 

Faithfully yours,

Fr. Will

Got Some Time and Some Talent?
Do we have some opportunities for you! St. David's has a number of vital ministry teams that are key to spreading the word about St. David's and the programs we offer. No special experience is needed...just a willingness to share ideas and spend a couple of hours a month working with your fellow parishioners. Here are some ministry teams that particularly welcome your participation.

Welcome/CONNECT: This highly successful committee takes the initial warm greetings visitors experience when they walk through the doors of St. David's and brings them into a better understanding of St. David's through such "get Acquainted" events as the newcomer's lunch and the Coffee CONNECT.

Marketing: Some creative thinking is needed to raise awareness of St. David's and to entice people to visit us and potentially join as new members.

Communications: The key to just about everything! The work includes both internal and external communications through Life, Happenings, social media and our Website. Experience with social media and websites is a plus!

Fundraising: Help plan and organize events - large and small - to raise funds for important needs, such as Domestic Outreach and emergency situations.

Please answer the call to serve and join one or more of these important ministry teams by contacting Buz Price .
