Coffee Hour Resumes
Greetings!

Coffee Hour is returning to St. Gregory's this Sunday. Because of county health guidelines, we will share coffee and conversation outside the front doors of the church between our two morning services. We ask that you do not take coffee inside the building and instead enjoy this time together outdoors. If you'd like to help with set up or clean up for Coffee Hour, please contact the office.

Peace,
Paul
