Christian Service Autumn Meeting
Join us on September 19 in LPC A/B beginning at 9:45 AM to be exact! It will feature reports from the Christian Service ministries, telling of their activities since our May meeting. Plans for the busy months ahead will be discussed. The meeting will conclude in plenty of time to attend 11 AM Mass so grab a coffee and donut and check it out!
The Sacrament of the Sick will be celebrated at all Masses October 9-10. If you would like more info, if you know someone who would like to participate, or if YOU would like to participate, call the parish office (517-223-8684). There is a limit of 20 candidates at each Mass so please call to reserve your place soon.
Three greeters are also needed for each Mass. Being a greeter is fun and makes you feel fabulous! Easy as 1-2-3: (1) arrive at your regular Mass about ½ hour early. (2) Wear your sunniest smile to warmly welcome participants. (3) Write their name on a name tag and enter it on a log-in sheet. That’s (truly!) all there is to it! Have no worries: An experienced greeter will be there, providing help and support!
Welcome Table ‘On Pause’
As you may be aware, Welcome Table has been on pause this summer. At a recent meeting, it was decided (due to an abundance of caution regarding the increased spread of covid), to extend this pause. Information concerning this ministry will be posted on the parish website and the parish Facebook page. Additionally, news updates are at your fingertips by phoning the Welcome Table reservation hotline: 517-499-5690.
