Altar Care
Contact: Grace Simmons
Thank you to these ladies that have used their time and talent to laundry the alter linens/Eucharistic purificators over the last few months: Carol Ford, Lisa Verkamp, Gloria DeLa Garza, Tia Atkinson, Grace Simmons, Minnie Perez, Allison Kenny, Bea Pachiano, Maria Pachiano, Karen Eichorst, Laura Worley, Frances Alvarado. Your service is much appreciated! If you would like to help with this ministry, please call the parish office.

For as in one body we have many parts, and all the parts do not have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ and individually parts of one another.  Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them: if prophecy, in proportion to the faith; if ministry, in ministering; if one is a teacher, in teaching; if one exhorts, in exhortation; if one contributes, in generosity; if one is over others, with diligence; if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. Romans 12:4-8
