FROM THE PASTOR
My dear parishioners,
I am happy to be celebrating public Mass again. After being exposed to Covid, I was in quarantine during the week of Christmas. After I tested negative on both the rapid and lab tests, I was able to return to the altar. I appreciate all your prayers. Let us all continue to pray for each other.
In other news, perhaps you have noticed the mosaic on the ground in the courtyard near the fountain. It is a tribute to Daniel in the Lion’s Den, and it was installed last year. I wrote about it more
God bless you all,
Daniel in the Lion's Den
COAT THEM WITH LOVE
I needed clothes and you clothed me... Matt 25:36
Please drop off your new or gently used coats in the collection bin located directly inside the front doors of the church. Please do NOT put the coats in the bin where food is collected for the food pantry outside. Thank you!

GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP
Begins January 27
If you are saddened by the death of a loved one, give yourself some time to work through the natural process of grieving. The Ministry of Consolation provides a grief support group to help you cope with your grief and pain after the death of a loved one and to support you as you learn to go on with life. The Ministry uses the
eight-step process based on William Worden’s four tasks of mourning.
Two trained facilitators from the Ministry of Consolation lead the group which meets one evening a week for 8 weeks. Meetings are confidential and books are provided as a stewardship supported program (Freewill donation offering).
