Giving Tuesday - Nov. 28
Tuesday, Nov. 28 is Giving Tuesday for the nationwide 'Give Catholic' campaign, so let's raise as many online donations as possible! Donations will be used for parish operating costs, and it's a good time to donate to ACSA too. You can donate online at https://

Remembering Loved Ones
We'll be remembering our deceased loves ones this month. Our Parish Book of Remembrance will be near the Baptismal areas in each of our churches for most of November. You are welcome to write in the book the names of your deceased loved ones.
Read the November Newsletter to learn about the results of the parish meeting and how our parishioners were enlivened by the pilgrimage. The newsletter also features articles about the WSOY Food Drive, the upcoming Hymn Festival, and Couples' Night Out Marriage Trivia.
