Our Monthly Potluck is held every second Wednesday of the month.
The next one will be Wednesday, March 8th!
This is a monthly church family meal honoring the newcomers in our parish and those having a birthday that month.
Everyone is invited to come and join us in acknowledging those parishioners celebrating a birthday, as well as any newly registered parishioners. Mass begins at 6:00PM and then the "potluck" dinner will immediately follow in the Parish Life Center (at approximately 6:45pm).
Hope to see you there the food is absolutely wonderful!
And please bring an entree, side dish or dessert to share

introduce yourself and let them know that you are praying for them!
Please continue to pray … for our participants; for our team, catechists, and volunteers; for how God may be gifting you to join us; and for our church family as faithful witness.

When do we need God’s love most? Of course, we need that love every second of our lives. But at times, God’s love is especially precious to us, times when:
·We lose a loved one;
·Life becomes so confusing that we do not know where to turn; or
·Life just becomes meaningless and depression sets in.
At times like these, it is very important to have someone who cares. Our church has trained parishioners to serve as Stephen Ministers, who offer a ministry of Christian Caring. If you are interested in the care of a Stephen Minister or are interested in serving as a Stephen Minister, contact Desiree Alford at 615-568-3378. We are seeking applicants to join this ministry now!
