Our restoration committee will be selling our “Christmas Tree Thought Cards” after each Mass next weekend.  Our “Thought Cards” will be placed on our Christmas Tree in the Church and those on it will be remembered at our Christmas Masses. These cards can remember deceased family members or those who won’t be home for Christmas.  Your support is appreciated.
