Please pray for our seminarians: Daniel Sessions, Charles Deering, Doug Hess, Luis Reyes, Matthew Gubenski, Patrick DePew, Max Gallegos, and John Gardiner.

PARISH HALL FRIDGE

The refrigerator in the Parish Hall kitchen has been resurrected: rumors of its death were greatly exaggerated. Given that it is over 30 years old, perhaps 120 in fridge years, it probably cannot be relied upon for long-term storage.
