Volunteers needed for Altar Ministry 

We are in urgent need of two more people to work on Team 2, which meets on Thursday after 9 o’clock Mass once every six weeks. Many of those on the Friday Teams have served for twenty years or more so it would be wonderful to have younger volunteers step forward to help in this worthy ministry.

Attention parents 

Please accompany your children, 12 and under,  to the restroom during Sunday Masses.  We have found large amounts of unused paper in the toilets that have caused them to clog and overflow.  This causes a dangerous and inconvenient situation for fellow parishioners that wish to use the restroom.   

Atención padres

Por favor, acompañe a sus hijos al baño, menores de 12 años, durante las misa del domingo.  Hemos encontrado grandes cantidades de papel higiénico sin usar en los inodoros que han causado un desbordamiento de los inodoros.  Cuando los inodoros se desbordan, los baños se inundan causando una situación peligrosa e inconveniente para los feligreses que desean usar el baño.
