Pastoral Visits/ Prayer Requests
Hospital Visits: Please call or email to let the pastoral care staff know if you or a loved one is in the hospital. Due to privacy laws, hospitals no longer call the church and let them know that a parishioner is a patient, so we have no way of knowing you are in the hospital if we don’t get notification.
Pastoral Visit: The pastoral staff is available anytime if you would like to talk.
Prayer Requests: If you or someone you know would like to have their name added to the list that is prayed for during Sunday services, please email the name.
Lent Food Drive
Pick up a reusable purple grocery bag at the Lent Festival on Sunday, February 11 (extras will be available in the parish hall after that) and bring it back with non-perishable food items for the CHUM food shelf that provides life-saving food for those in need in our community. Keep the bag in your car as a visible reminder to purchase a few items for the food shelf when you go to the grocery store! Keep them in your car and you won’t forget to bring them to church each week! A list of suggested items to donate will be in the bag.
From February 18-March 25 you can bring your bag to church and place it in front of the altar before the service starts. After church, the Youth Leadership Team will remove the bags, store the food and tally the food items and any monetary donations and update it on a display in the parish hall and have the bags available to take home again. At the end of the food drive on March 25 you can keep your bag as a thank you for participating in the food drive! All of the donations will count towards the March FoodShare program, which will allow CHUM to receive incentive dollars for donations of food and cash that they receive!
