Gods peace to you and your family
Here are a few things you may need to know

  
2015 Envelopes are NOW available for pick up! Please go to the back on the church and the greeters will help you out. Remember that 2014 envelopes CAN NOT be used in 2015.

  

Sunday!!! Do you love this building?  Do you have time to help us with care of this place? Are you handy and/or good with tools? We are forming a Maintenance Committee that would consist of folks who would assist with the care and upkeep of the Cathedral Facility.  Jim Waldie our faithful Maintenance Coordinator of 10 years is stepping down, and we need to put in place a team of volunteers who would meet regularly to address the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the facility.  Working in partnership with the wardens, our custodian and the office coordinator, the Maintenance Committee would set budget, prioritize ongoing maintenance needs, monitor the calendar upkeep schedules (fire alarm maintenance, sprinkler system upkeep, furnace and heating monitoring, etc). and oversee the day to day maintenance need of this large physical plant. We would also need a small circle of building “on-call” folks who would be our after hours contacts for emergent issues should they arise.  Curious?  Interested?  Join us for an information sharing meeting – (no commitment required at this point) just come and hear about the needs and the ministry/work.  The Maintenance Information meeting will be held Sunday December 14 after the 10 am service.  We will meet in the Chapel




Christmas Luncheon:  After the 10 AM service on Dec. 21 (next Sunday) there will be a pot luck Christmas luncheon. The church is providing the main course and parish members are asked to bring salads, appy’s or deserts to share.


St. Peter's carol service is on Dec. 21st. at 4:00 followed by a pot luck supper in the hall
