The next Youth and Adult Mission Experience (YAME) to Los Toros will be from May 22nd through June 5th. There are options for a shorter trip for those who are not able to stay the entire time.
This May mission trip is for both young adults and adults. We will be working together with the young people and adults in Los Toros and nearby villages. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow in Christian mission and service especially for those who have already enjoyed a work camp experience. This trip will focus on cement floors, dental care programs, English classes, celebrating Mother’s Day and much more.
The first YAME prep meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 27, at 7:00 p.m. in lower level Conference Room B.
If you plan on attending or have any questions, please contact Cathy Mateo Zayas at email@example.com.

The 2017 class was very successful with attendees paying off a collective total of $87,000 in debt.
• Approximately 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, regardless of their income. This means that “broke” has become the new normal in our nation.
• At the end of the month, many individuals simply have nothing left because of debt and expenses. If this is you, I’ve got good news. You are NOT alone.
• You may be sitting there wishing you could get more financial margin in your life. If you’d like to take control of your money, then listen carefully.
• As a church, we want to share a practical plan that can help you discover God’s way of handling money. We want to empower you to get on a budget, get out of debt, save for the future and take control of YOUR money.
• Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! This nine week class taught by money expert Dave Ramsey can change your financial story in a matter of weeks and your family tree and legacy for generations to come!
FPU isn’t your typical money class. It’s practical, entertaining and fun! More than 4 million families, couples and individuals have taken FPU. The average family pays off $5,300 and saves $2,700 in the first 90 days. Whether you’re struggling to make ends meet or you’re a millionaire, FPU has something for you. FPU is based on more than 800 verses of scripture and is a proved plan that will work for you.

The position requires basic cleaning and light maintenance experience, good communication skills, and a sense of the Christian faith and ministry we provide as a parish.
This position is important to the readiness and presentation of the school, church and grounds for liturgies, and the building in general for the many activities that take place on the weekends. It serves as an assist to the staff, parishioners and visitors, as well as the Lead Maintenance person.
We also have an after school maintenance position available (4 hours per day / 4 week days). This individual would be mainly responsible for cleaning the school.

You Never Know… when you will need to help save a life. As an update for some, and news for others, the parish has 2 Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs). They are used to evaluate heart rhythms and deliver a potentially lifesaving shock if necessary. Anyone can use them!
1. Located at the top of the stairs leading to the lower church hall. You’ll see a 3 dimensional sign facing the worship space. Look for it today, so you’ll know where it is during an emergency.
2. Located on the lower level across from the gym doors. During an emergency, if someone says, “get the AED,” please do not hesitate. Take it out of the cabinet on the wall and bring to the site, and call 911.
The parish also stocks 3 first aid kits:
1. Usher’s Room
2. Kitchenette off Gathering Hall
3. Parish Office Workroom
– even if you just need a Band-Aid
