Together in Faith: “Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.’” Matthew 22:8-9
This would certainly be an odd wedding reception, filled with strangers who were probably happy just to get something to eat. So the kingdom Jesus envisions welcomes people we would never consider… something to think about!
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there will be an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Anali Perry

Project for the homeless: WE NEED LOTS AND LOTS OF PLASTIC GROCERY BAGS PLEASE! (Stores refuse to donate them).

Anyone interested in assisting the group in the making of the mats may contact Monica Larsen at 480-621-8158 or email@example.com.
