Dear Partners in Ministry,
Today, it's all about the rest of 2022— what's coming, who's doing what, and how we might get there.

Let's Talk Christmas!

Since this is my first Christmas with you, I wanted to get a very early start on understanding who might be ministering and when. SO! Please visit the linked form below and tell me in which Masses you'd typically minister. This is not a binding contract, just a rough count so I can plan with a little more confidence.

But before Christmas...

Here are some dates to keep in mind. More information will come as each date draws closer.

* Dates/times marked with an asterisk means that I think I'd like the whole Parish Choir present, but we'll confirm that later...
