You have probably seen in our stewardship center a table that advertises our Migrant Ministry. I remember last year a member of the parish telling me her experience of signing up for this ministry. What was it? What would it be like? She had questions, but went ahead anyway. And she came to love it. It’s a ministry of driving to Louisburg on Sundays, picking up seasonal migrant workers in their trailers, and taking them to mass at Our Lady of the Rosary parish in Louisburg. Did she need to speak Spanish? No. She only needed to be open to what the experience offered, which was an opportunity of encounter with some people she otherwise may not have known. Does this sound like something you might be interested in? Check out the stewardship center this weekend or look elsewhere in this bulletin for more information.

This weekend is our wrap-up for our 2016 Bishop’s Annual Appeal. We will have members of our stewardship committee on hand to answer questions you might have about the BAA. Our parish has done better this year than last, but we are still short of our goal as you see in the chart below. We thank all who have contributed, and if you have not yet contributed, we ask that you please consider making a donation. Thank you and blessings on your week!
