1 Peter 3:18-22
My daughter in law posted a video on Facebook that she said perfectly depicts a typical day with her kids, especially with 20 month old Margaret: The video, entitled “Why moms get nothing done” begins with a mother kneeling on the floor lovingly folding her daughter’s clothes and placing them in a drawer—while behind her, the little girl is pulling out other folded clothes from another drawer and throwing them on the floor.

The final task for the Priest-in-Charge Discernment Team was to write a new parish profile, and this document is now available on the Parish Profile page.

The full church history, no longer part of the parish profile, is being updated and will be posted to the website.
The Parish Profile page can also be reached from the main navigation menu (under WHO WE ARE) or from SELECTED PAGES in the sidebar.
