New, Larger Gift Shop is in desperate need of volunteers. Would you like to spend your voluntary time working in a roomy, air conditioned shop with fun, dedicated staff and help develop the new shop into the next level? Contact Ida Griffin at the Gift Shop or Sandy in the church office. “My goal is to be open every day for a time to provide a Spiritual haven with products to be utilized in your personal Journey with Our Lord. There will be space to Meditate and share a Cappuccino with others in a very rewarding part of this Community Ministry.” There is a new line of glass crafts available at the Gift Shop called Griffin Glassworks, with things ranging from wall crosses to necklaces. “A purveyor of glass art, attempting to extract all the spirit, beauty and maybe a footprint, from the sand cultivated from God’s beach.”
Please call the parish office if you receive offertory envelopes but do not use them, so that we may cancel your order. Favor de llamar a la oficina parroquial si recibe sobres para las ofrendas y no los usa para cancelar su orden.

So please continue to donate your Sunday coupon inserts or any coupons you don’t want and pick up some that you do. Please place any unclipped coupon donations under the coupon box and they will be clipped and added to the box.
