Newsletter | November 30, 2020
For the Spirit of healing: that God will touch all who are burdened with illness, weakness and in need, especially; For all who are sick, we pray for Marty Miller; Peter Daly; Gary Lydum; Dick Mitchell; Ann Leachman; Hanny Susanto; Tom Wilson, cousin of Pam Thomas; Patrick Reznicek, nephew of Gloria Arteaga; and Mike Costello, brother of Paul Costello; and Mike Lennon, brother in law of Paul Costello. May the Lord in his mercy be close to them with his healing power and his tender love May God’s healing Spirit renew them in body, mind, and spirit so that they may live fully, enjoy their relationships and appreciate all of God’s gifts. And those inscribed in the Book of Prayers. May the healing love of the Spirit touch them and bring them to wholeness.

For those who have died, especially Michael Root; and Lynda Henkel. That Christ may welcome them into the fullness of life where sorrow and pain exist no more.

We invite you to email Jody Fitts to add names to the prayer list.

The charities we support are NOT taking tangible donations this year, but have requested CASH or GIFT CARDS in amounts of $25 or $50 from Safeway, Fred Meyer, QFC, Target, Amazon or Costco. DEADLINE is Dec. 9th.

Please mail or drop off Cash, Checks (Payable to OLL Memo: Mother Teresa Guild) and Gift Cards (Please mark value of GC on card) at Parish Center Office. Or you can give online HERE. (If you currently give online you can login to your account, select a Give A New Gift, select Giving Tree.)
