CALLING ALL CRAFTERS
Do you have a special craft, baked good or other service you would like to sell at the annual boutique? Join us on Sunday, November 18th after the 10:30 Mass to sell your goods or to shop for that special gift.
There will be a potluck lunch in conjunction with the Parish boutique. Please bring a main dish, salad or dessert to share. Plan to stay awhile and share some delicious food and fellowship with others.
There will be a table featured at the Holiday boutique with Fairtrade wares made available to us through our partnership with Catholic Relief Services Ethical Trade. Most of these items are sold in limited numbers, so do not miss out on this great opportunity. There will also be
catalogue sales available for purchase as well. Please contact the Parish office for more information.

HOSPITALITY ~ WELCOMING ALL! Our hospitality ministry
has done an amazing job of the years to provide a wonderful
time for fellowship after the 8 am and 10:30 am Masses. We
hope you have enjoyed it as well. The ministry is looking for
more volunteers to help with the set up, serving and clean up
each week. Our hope is that together with a friend, or even on
your own, you would consider volunteering to help one Sunday a
week. For more information in helping with the ministry please
contact Steve Miller by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
