Name Tags

Wearing your name tag each Sunday is a form of hospitality. Please wear your name tag on Pentecost Sunday as there will be many guests at church. If you do not have a name tag, please sign your name on the Name Tag sign-up sheet located on the information table in the narthex. 


This Sunday will be another opportunity to write a prayer, comfort words or names of people on a dove. We will display these during Pentecost. Thank you to wonderful Wendy St. Denis for this beautiful origami gift.

Garden of Eatin'

It was a hot one on Saturday but that didn't stop the Dunwoody Girl Scouts Troop 29414 (Bailey Toms' troop) from getting together to give the Garden of Eatin a face lift.  They dug in and planted tomatoes, peppers, jalapeƱos, egg plants, green beans, cucumbers, and watermelons!  

On a side note....please feel free to water the garden if you are ever at St. Pat's and have some spare time!  :-)
Many thanks to the troop!!!
