    PARISH ASSOCIATIONS


    MISCELLANEOUS

    Our church is going to face some renovation. The Blessed Sacrament will be relocated, a new baptismal font will be provided and the choir will have a permanent place. The altar and ambo will be replaced. Donations for any of these items will be accepted as memorials

    Evangelization Program "Disciples in Mission" will start in the parish this Fall. A parish team will attend the diocesan training session in September.

    An important part of this program is the formation of small groups -base community- to reflect on the Sunday Readings during the Lenten season.

    Please, pray for the success of this campaign.
