The Lord Needs Your Company!

There is a sign-up sheet in the vestibule of the side door for
those who can commit to being an adorer (for one hour)
between the hours of 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM on Mondays.
Your commitment to fill the available hours would be greatly
appreciated. Come bask in the glow of Jesus’ great love!

Winter Heating Costs

Come, Lord of the spring!
  We know that heating costs have truly skyrocketed this season. For the winter months
of December, January and February, the heating bill for the church alone was
$9500.00! And that does not include St. Paul School, Canning Hall or the rectory. 
This also does not take into consideration increased electricity usage and
weather-related expenses of plowing and snow removal on the church and 
school grounds. For those who were fortunate enough to travel south for the winter 
and have now returned, welcome back! Please make every effort to“make up” any 
missed collections. If anyone can slightly increase their budget donations (including 
 our H.E.L.P collections for Heat-Electricity-Light and Power), please do so 
according to your means. Thanks for all your on going financial support. Let us 
pray for sunny and mild spring weather!
