Thank You! - To all who volunteer at church. Be it teaching Sunday School, counting money, reading or being an acolyte, working at the Fish Fry's and any of the other fundraisers, cleaning out the kitchen, baking for the coffee hour - the jobs are endless. Being involved keeps the church running, and is a great way to get together with your fellow parishioners and get to know one another. So if you haven't signed up for anything, NOW is the time.
