Last Sunday, April 29, the Volunteers of Saint Francis of Assisi Parish attended a luncheon to affirm their Baptismal Call to serve in Jesus' Name.
The brunch took place in the Saint Francis of Assisi Parish Hall. One-hundred and seventy Volunteers attended together with your Pastor. Following a brunch, offering both breakfast and lunch entrees, a memorable Ministry PowerPoint presentation highlighted the many events offered by our Parish Ministry.
Together, our Volunteers donated almost 41,000 hours of service this past year. This is a testimony of the dedication and generosity of each of you.
Our gratitude to all you Volunteers, Directors and Coordinators.
I want to extend a special thank you to Jeanette Lindish, Cheri Ochetti, and Penny Fleming for planning this event and making the centerpieces; thank you to Gerry Chesney and Parish Women's Guild for the table skirts, cloths and napkins; thank you to Don Kasson for preparing the PowerPoint presentation; thank you to BOb Lindish for brightening our event with his music; thank you to our Council Chairs, Bob Barrett and Vern Spiker for their leadership; and David Kelly, representing the Hills Restaurant of Rotonda Golf and Country Club, for catering.
Please consider joining one of our Parish Ministry. Contact any one of the Coordinators listed regularly in the Church Bulletin.
Thank you Volunteers!
Sincerely in the Lord,
Father Richard York, your Pastor
