As we enter the Ordinary time of the Church calendar we look back over the past few weeks in gratitude for the great gift God has bestowed on us. It is also an opportunity for me to thank so many of you for all you did over the Seasons of Advent and Christmas. The Giving Tree this year set a record for the number of gifts donated, our food collection was good, and many people were so generous in helping families in need.
Help the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program by donating old Christmas cards with religious pictures. No Santas on surf boards please! The children turn these pictures into beautiful art work. A drop box will be left in the Miami St. vestibule January - February. Thank you!
