CCW Corner Please join us. Together we will grow.

Just a Reminder

Many of our parishioners are getting rid of their land lines and opting for cell phones. Great! But the church also needs to be updated of those changes.
Please call the parish office (320-274-8828 ext. 21) or Pam Petersen (320-274-8074) and leave a message with your name, the number where
you can be reached and any other changes in your contact information.
Thank you. Communication is one of the keys to growth!

   Thank you to the many that attended the July meeting and Mass for all past and present members. A short meeting included the installation of officers- Jan Braun as president, Margie Alberg as V. president, Jessica Chapman as secretary and Lyn Imdieke-Struzyk as treasurer.
   The evening ended with treats by Hannah’s EnJOYables while celebrating the many accomplishments of our parish and giving congrats to Bonnie Polich-recipient of St. Paul and Minneapolis CCW Lay Woman Volunteer award. Also thank you to Julie Sedey for many years of serving as funeral chairperson. Thank you for the honor of serving as your officer team 2017-2019. We learned so much and really enjoyed our times together and with you! Out-going officers are Pam Petersen, Audrey Roth, Jessica Chapman, Kathy Schultz

The Corporal Works of Mercy 
1. Feed the hungry.  2. Give drink to the thirsty.
3. Shelter the homeless. 4. Clothe the naked.
5. Comfort the sick. 6. Visit the imprisoned.  7. Bury the dead. 

CCW representatives will be available after each Mass this weekend if you have questions or are interested and available to volunteer for this ministry.
Each volunteer would work at 1 - 2 funerals each year. A chair would call you to see if you are available and would work with you to make you feel comfortable to work at each funeral luncheon.
Thank you!
