Thanks to everyone who contributed to the first-ever FOWLER COMMUNITY SERVICE FUND special collection December 28 or sent in a donation during the following week. Total amount donated was $917 ($361 for the Project Fund for immediate use, and $556 for the Permanent Endowment). The Fund has been around since the Capital Campaign of the 1990’s, and new, full endowment guidelines were approved by the Vestry in December, 2008. Donor cards and basic information are available in the church office. You will find the Guidelines posted on the Social Action Committee bulletin board.

St. Margaret’s Altar Society, another important arm of church life at St. Michael’s, uses their member’s $10.00 annual dues for: care and upkeep of the altars, vestments, supplies of communion wafers, candles, incense and other cleaning supplies .
