Annual Rummage Sale
Annual Rummage Sale

Dear Parishioners,


We are writing to you at this time because we know you are the resources for our 'annual rummage sales' and we greatly appreciate your help.


We are asking that you 'hold-off'  bringing  your donated items for this fund raiser to the Church Hall,  until further notice.  Each day is evolving 

with news about the virus so therefore, we may need to change plans. 


Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you.   


Thank you for understanding and for your patience during this time.   


Our prayers for your well being.
