HELP SERVE CHRIST'S BODY & BLOOD:  A special training for parishioners interested in becoming extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion at Mass will be offered at 7pm Wednesday, Feb. 11 (immediately following the 6:30pm Mass). This is a very powerful ministry of service to Jesus Christ and the people of God.  
Please consider coming to discern if God is calling you to serve him in this manner. Let us know if you'll attend by contacting the parish office at 532-9344 or parishoffice@spxcatholic.org.  If you are interested, but cannot attend the Feb. 11 meeting, please let us know so a future session can be scheduled.
WE GROW IN HOLINESS through the commitments we make and keep.  Could you commit to praying for one hour a week in our chapel?  Every Tuesday from 9am-7pm, a consecrated host is enshrined on the altar for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.  Please call the Parish Office at 532-9344 to make this weekly commitment or if you'd like to be placed on the Adorer substitute list.
DONUT HELP NEEDED...we could use a few more people to help with donuts after theSunday Masses.  This is a great way for a family to serve together or for individuals or couples to meet new people.  The commitment is once every month and a half.  If you're interested or have questions, please contact the parish office at 532-9344.
