Thank You! Kudos to all those who volunteered to make the Sudbury Potters’ Guild’s “Soup’s On” successful – those who made cookies, made soup, or did a shift of serving or doing copious dishwashing! The Guild was very pleased with the sale and the net profit for the church’s operating fund will be about $3000. A VERY special thank you to Carol Bohren who coordinated all the food and other details for the event. She was amazing!
Book Sale: It is not too soon to be thinking about culling your bookshelves to get them ready for the new Christmas reading material you may receive. The Outreach Team’s annual booksale will be held January 30, 31 and Feb.1 with all proceeds going to support our national and international outreach projects. Please canvas your family and friends for their books too! No magazines or textbooks (or moldy ones!) please!
Advent and Christmas Posters: Do you have a public announcements space at work? Is there a community bulletin board at your grocery or convenience store? Is there space for announcing upcoming events at your condo? The communications team of Alex, Marion, and Fr. Tim have prepared posters for our Advent and Christmas services. They are very beautiful. If you would like to post one or more of these, please let Fr. Tim know. Help us get the word out!
