Verse of the Day

And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you. (Luke 12:29-31, ESV)

New Ministry


If anyone would be willing to help some of our parishioners with the paperwork associated with an illness, there are a number of people who could use help dealing with the various insurance forms and phone calls that accompany medical care.  It would be a short term offer of assistance following a hospitalization or critical care.  If interested in helping please speak to Father Richard.
