I’m sure many of you are aware already, but we began distributing the new directories this past weekend. We will continue to distribute them after all Masses this upcoming weekend as well for those who have yet to pick up their copy. If you had your picture taken in the directory, you will receive a copy for free. If not, you can purchase one for $10. Supplies are limited for these additional directories.
I wanted to take this time to thank all of those who volunteered their time to help in this way. In a particular way, I want to thank Debbie Helmbrecht who coordinated the effort with LifeTouch, arranged for volunteers, set up the tables, and volunteered many hours for this work. I’m grateful she offered to lead the effort and serve in this way. I’m also grateful for all of the volunteers who manned the tables, the sign up sheets, helped work with the LifeTouch photographers, and more. Finally, I’m very grateful to Charlene Wurm for all of her work on the pictures that you see in our directory and for working on the formatting. It looks great, and I’m thankful to her for that. I’m also grateful for all of the time that she took to take the pictures of the various committees and groups in the parish and school. It’s also an appropriate time to thank her for all of the pictures that she takes of the various events and activities in the parish and school which are posted online or elsewhere.
Thank you to all those who helped make the directory happen and thank you to all of you who had your picture taken in the directory and updated your contact information. It’s a small but important way for us to stay close as a parish, as the body of Christ, and be able to get to know our parish family better.
Again, if you have yet to pick up your copy, you can do so after all Masses this weekend.
