Music Scholarship Sunday - Sunday was Music Scholarship Sunday in the PNCC. A reminder that if you have a musical talent which you would like to share with our church, music scholarships are available. Please see Father Charles for an application or if you would like for more information.
Seniorate Rep - Can you represent our church at seniorate meetings? We need 2 people to fill this role. Meetings are held once each year, usually in Chicago, and you can ride with our other reps. If you are interested, or would like more information, please see Father Charles.
Home Blessings - If you would like to have your home blessed, please call to arrange for a day and time convenient for you!
We are collecting the following -
Granola bars, fruit snacks, pencils, glue sticks, tissues, wipes, hand sanitizer;
Coats; Winter gloves, hats, scarfs (child size or adult small);
Canned goods / non-perishable food. Thanks for your generosity!
The Power of Prayer! - We are asking our parishioners to pray for the growth of our church. Prayer is powerful, and when we believe that we will succeed, we will be able to look back and see that this was the beginning of our attendance turning around. We have prayers on the sign up table - feel free to use them
or modify them to meet your needs! Thanks for praying for our church!
Financial Statements - If you would like a financial statement for contributions made in 2019, please see Father Charles.
