Car Incident - You may have heard that a car struck our church last week. Our church building is solid and did not sustain any structural damage. We have some cosmetic items that are minor, which will be taken care of at a minimal cost. Some have looked high up on the bell tower and noticed some spallded bricks. This was not due to the incident, but from weathering. We thank our ancestors for providing us with a solid structure - Praise God!
Blessing of Pets! - We will Bless Pets in commemoration of St. Francis, on Saturday October 2, from 10am to 12 noon, in our parking lot. Everyone is invited to bring their pets! Please make sure that your pet(s) are on a leash or in a carrier, for their protection. We hope you can join us!
Pet Drive - We are having a Pet Drive as part of our Blessing of Pets event. Please bring food, litter, toys, blankets, or monetary donations, and place them in the boxes in the rear of the church. The items collected will be given to those who help pets. Thanks for your support!
