Homebound Eucharistic Ministers Needed

Have you felt the Holy Spirit opening your heart to something new? We are in need of a few more homebound Eucharistic ministers-Extraordinary Ministers. With the current pandemic and protocol surrounding visits (under 15 min, masked, physically distanced) we really NEED some persons under the age of 65. If you are interested, please contact Barb Uschold Anderson, Pastoral Minister, at the parish office for more information. This will be a gift to another and surprisingly a gift to you.
