The Leader’s Meeting will start promptly at 7 p.m. via ZOOM (link to be sent separately) to get the Leader Couples to the host homes by 8 p.m. to start group meetings by 8:15. We want to be sensitive to those families that have sitters at home with curfews.

Lasagna Dinner/St. Mark’s Food Collection

Warm gratitude to the Sherry Group for planning and executing on the delicious lasagna dinner.  While we missed those that could not attend, fun was had by all.  A shout out to Deacon Pete and Jan for planning the paraliturgy and to Father Dominic for sharing his gift of acoustic guitar music.  Thank you!

Finally, we were able to collect 8 bins of food for our sharing parish, St. Marks!  Thank you, Loys and Mortellaros for collection.
