ANGEL TREE: Our Parish Angel Tree is back this year! For those new to this long-standing program, the angels are put on a tree at the beginning of Advent and they represent families that are in need.
PLEASE DO NOT BE SCAMMED: Please remember, Father Mowery will NEVER email or text you requesting money or gift cards of any kind. Scammers are out there attempting to prey upon your good will, and they fabricate email addresses and cell phone identities which LOOK official but ARE NOT. Please spread the word.
THINKING ABOUT VOLUNTEERING? Maybe this will give you that much needed push
