don omalley with dogIn recognition of the Feast of St. Francis, Father Don will conduct a blessing of pets and animals of the parish on October 3rd at 5:00 p.m.  St. Francis is known for his special love and respect for animals, and apparent ability to communicate with them.  Bring your dog, cat, fish, hamster, horse, goat – whatever – to be blessed.  Please keep in mind your animal will be in “mixed company” so bring it on leash, in crate, on halter – whatever is appropriate for your friend, to keep it, and others safe.

Yardsale – Update

applausThe yard sale was a great success.  Some proceeds are still flowing in due to appraisals in progress.  These funds will be distributed to multiple charitable and relief organizations, namely,  Court Appointed Special Advocate for Children (CASA), Shop with a Cop, Empty Stocking Fund, Almost There Ministry (for women leaving the prison system), after school programs for Clay Co. NC and Towns Co. GA.. and a very small portion, to our church mortgage.

We thank Debbie O’Malley for working so hard along with so many others that contributed to the wonderful response of the community and a successful yard sale.

September 1 at 10 AM will begin a Bible study by Lisa Terkeurst called the UNINVITED. It is a six session video Bible study. Lisa digs deep into God‘s word to help you identify the roots of rejection, and overcome the damage past hurts can inflict on your relationships today. You will fully grasp what it looks like to live loved. Lisa will take you on a visual journey in the Holy Land to experience scripture like you never have before. Please let Verlee Jones know that you will be attending in order for her to order you a study guide.
