Dn. Nicholas is looking for volunteers to help do some work on the upkeep of our church's storage areas. We could do a lot to maximize the utility of our small church by having better storage solutions. We actually have quite a bit of space that could be used for storage if we can get it properly furnished. Please tell Fr. Nicholas if you are willing to help — probably on a Saturday sometime in the next several weeks.

The parish council is beginning to start the process of putting together a budget proposal for 2012. In that vein, we can use everybody's help in two ways:

1. If you have not yet turned in an updated estimate of your expected monthly contributions, please do so ASAP. You can also just send an email to Fr. Nicholas - npark153@gmail.com

2. Parish members who have input with regard to budgetary priorities you'd like to see in place are encouraged to send a message to Fr. Nicholas. We'll try to work your input into the proposal. The final budget decision will be made at the annual parish meeting in February, but the proposal will be put together at the next two council meetings.

This week's Adult Sunday School class will focus on the Ascension and the Holy Spirit. Join us!
