Thank You Gardening Angels

When we pray, much like when we garden, we cultivate a relationship with

God. Just as rain and sun are essential elements to successful gardening, the

challenges and gifts in our lives also provide us with more bountiful blessings.

Thank you to the following Gardening Angels who have volunteered to

weed and garden the parish grounds, and to Tom Rowander, the managing

Angel. May you all be blessed with the bountiful blessings as you have given to

our parish.

We could use more volunteers to continue to tackle those remaining bush beds.

If you have some extra time, please call the rectory office.

September. The basis of the “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner Program,”

is that a group of people go to another parishioner’s home for dinner

one Saturday a month and they are only given the address, phone

number and what to bring, i.e., appetizer, salad, vegetable, or

dessert. The size of the dinner is based on the number of people that

each host can accommodate. You do not have to host a dinner to be

part of the program. For additional information or to register, call Fran

at 724-772-2063 or Wilma at 724-776-9177 ext. 304 or
