We have many celebrations coming up in our parish family-new babies arriving and weddings. In lieu of a typical baby or bridal shower, each expectant mother and engaged couple has a box in the trapeza hall. Please consider dropping a card or gift in the box to help us honor each family during this special time.
We are also accepting donations for a family in need. Please visit the bulletin board in the trapeza hall to take an item off the board that you wish to donate. You may place the donated items behind the board and they will be collected.
