4th Sunday of Easter


Dear Friends,


As you all know, Sam Johnson has retired as coordinator of environment for the Church.  I am looking

for a COORDINATOR of flowers.  This person would coordinate volunteers who would like to provide

flowers and decorations for the Church.  People who have gardens would be able to take a particular

weekend and provide flower decorations for the Church.  When no one has flowers or nothing is in

bloom, we would use some fine silk flower decorations for the Church.  The flower coordinator would

have a dedicated email so people could contact him or her and work out a schedule.  The coordinator

would not be responsible for the flowers him or herself just the coordination.

Do you want to be CZAR or CZARINA? Email me (!

Strengthen the Church at Home

Next week (29 April), we will take up the Catholic Home Missions Appeal.  Right now, over 40% of dioceses in the United States are considered home mission territory because they are unable to fund the essential pastoral work needed in their communities.  Your support of this appeal helps ease the struggle of these dioceses.  Please prayerfully consider how you can support this appeal.
