Annoucements Through December 21, 2013

Social Concerns special collection today will benefit TIHAN’S POZ CAFÉ. St. Michael's commits to provide a meal every March. This year’s meal will be held on March 21st. Your generous donation TODAY will cover the cost of the meal as well as personal supply gifts to those in attendance at the meal. WE ARE IN GREAT NEED OF 3 OR 4 MORE VOLUNTEERS TO HELP SERVE THE MEAL. There are volunteer sheets to sign in the back of church.

St. Michael's is sponsoring “Poz Café” on the 21st of March. We are collecting toiletries to be handed out at the end of the meal. We are looking for 80 donations of Shampoo, 80 donations of Conditioner and 80 donations of deodorant. Regular or large sizes are preferred. If you are able to help, there is the gold “treasure chest” in the back of church where you may place your gifts. Donations may also be brought to the parish office. We thank you for your generosity. Call Tish Newell for more information.

Lenten Soup Suppers begin on Wednesday, February 20 at 6:30 PM at the House of Prayer. We will be viewing the movie “The Passion of Christ” by Mel Gibson. You are invited for a simple soup supper and then watch segments of the film discussing Jesus response to the violence done to him. The sessions are preceded by Evening Prayer at 6 PM.

Did you know? St. Michael's now has Godly Play, a Sunday School program for our children. The facilitators are: Rachael Poe, and Violet and Alec Kennedy. The class begins at 10:10 am in the Parish Center. All of our children and their friends are invited to participate and experience this exciting program.

A new shipment of “JUST COFFEE” has arrived. It is available at Coffee Hours in the Parish Center after the morning Masses.
