A WELCOME to all visitors and newcomers.  We're glad you're here, and we hope you'll keep coming back.   Holy Communion is open to all who wish to receive. This is Christ’s altar, and all are welcome at Christ’s feast. We also hope you’ll introduce yourself to the clergy after the service and will sign our guest book.   Welcome!!

VISITORS AND NEWCOMERS:  Please take a few moments to fill out one of the blue cards in the pews and by the guest book in the Narthex, and place the card in the offertory plate.  It’s very important to us that you be included as a parishioner, if you so desire.

Thank you!!!

ALTAR FLOWERS:  The flower envelopes are in the Narthex on the table and in the envelope under the Altar Flower calendar.  Please put your envelope in the offering plate or in the secretary’s mailbox with your dedication (In Memory of or In Thanksgiving for).  The suggested donation is now $30.00.
