The weekly bulletin, Essentials, contains reminders, news, information, liturgy schedule, stewardship information, weekly Scripture readings and other “essential” bits of information. The name was chosen with a purpose in mind: that each week we read what is “essential” to our staying connected to the life of our local Church. Copies of the Essentials are available after Masses and at the parish center. You can also download it from the parish website anytime.
Connections is our monthly newsletter and is distributed the first weekend of each month, along with Essentials. Our purpose is to stay connected with one another, as well as our diocesan and universal Church. Connections will have details of ministries and what will be taking place that month within our community. That means we have to keep the copy for a month, since it will contain much good information. Should the dog chew on it, there will always be more available! It is also available on our website.
