Communion for the Homebound

Greetings,

A big welcome back to Fr. Damian who is filling in for me this weekend again! Glad he is available and willing to be here! Please say a prayer for him and his ministry as he serves our Diocese.

“Thank you” to all who donated toward the purchase of the Halloween Candy given out to the Trick ‘Or Treaters in front of the Church. The unseasonably warm weather that evening made for an enjoyable time. We must have given out over a hundred pounds of candy…maybe more?! It was fun to see all the costumes and smiles!

If you know someone who is homebound and would like to receive Holy Communion, please contact our Parish Homebound Coordinator, Nancy Sweeney. This important ministry is handled by generous Eucharistic Ministers who volunteer to bring the Blessed Sacrament, prayers and a smile to those who are homebound, sick, or recovering from surgery and cannot make it to Mass.

Our Parish Christmas Fair is Coming up! Saturday, December 2nd. A lot of fun is planned, including a delicious ham dinner with all the fixings! Dessert and coffee included. There will be raffles, games and a visit from Santa, so be sure to mark your calendar! Last year, we pretty near sold out of food and everyone raved how scrumptious the meal was. It’s nice now that we have such a good reputation for offering delicious dinners, “the word” gets around and we don’t have to advertise as much!

May God continue to bless our little community here in the mountains!

Peace,
Fr. Kneeland
