Greetings and Blessings to you all!

We are entering Phase II of the Flocknote launch. We have reached our first goal of 100 Flocknote participants! Yea! Phase II will describe to all parishioners what Flocknote does and the benefits of joining. It will also provide ministry leaders with helpful information so they can utilize Flocknote to keep their ministry enlivened by communicating with their ministers. There will be a training session in January in the school cafe featuring an interactive zoom presentation with a representative from Flocknote.jessee tree

The next St Vincent de Paul meeting will be Monday, December 13 at 6:00 pm in the St. Francis Room. We will be electing officers and creating committees and will then be ready to accept cases.

The Parish Mission with Father Jim was well attended and very well received. Special thanks to Kathy Wallace for all her hard work in coordinating this event.

We will begin promoting the online prayer group by encouraging people to sign up on Flocknote to receive weekly communications from this ministry. Each week a prayer or information about prayer is emailed or texted to those who sign up. Interaction among members of the group to ask for prayer requests, to show support for those requesting prayer or share their thoughts about prayer is encouraged. We will introduce this ministry in the bulletin and online soon.

We now have an online parish calendar on our St. Paschal website. A printed version was placed in the December 5th bulletin. The online version will be updated with new events or changes to the current schedule. It is on this website click on CALENDAR in the top menu or Click Here and check it out.
Merry Christmas!
