We have a new bulletin! Jenny Lusk and Chuck Weigel from Diocesan (is our new bulletin publishing partner) are working to line up ads for the back pages of our new bulletin. The new bulletin will be available in print and online. Please let us know if you can help by advertising in the bulletin. The generosity of the advertisers is what makes the bulletin possible and allows our church to receive this weekly news publication at no cost. Bulletin advertisers and sponsors recognize the tremendous value of connecting with our church family, and we ask our parishioners and guests to patronize our supporters when using a local service.
