Housekeeping Sunday: at lunch today, we are asking the parish’s help in repairing, reclaiming and disposing of all the odds and ends that collect around the church. If you are handy, or are able to take a load to WIN or to the dump, or have been meaning to ask about the lost and found, please consider staying after lunch to help.
All Souls’ Day: The service for All Souls Day will be Thursday, November 2nd at 7pm. If you have lost a loved one, this is the service to remember and give thanks for his or her life.

If you have a photo of a loved one that you would like included in this project, please bring one into the office (it will be scanned, reprinted and returned to you), or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
