The remaining dates that the group will meet are March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, and April 6. You will be provided a book which contains the readings, scripture insights, and questions to guide the discussion.

Please consider being the gift bearer at a weekend Liturgy. The sign up book is located near the gift table in the colonnade of the church. Please give us your name and email so we can send a reminder. All you need to do at the Mass of your choosing is to talk to an usher before Mass. Thanks – All Are Welcome!
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

• Anyone who can use a reminder of God’s loving embrace!
