Thanks – We have New Counters
Last week we announced that we are in need of a new counter (stays after church and counts the offering) to join the team. Not only did one person volunteer but we had two other parishioners step forward to join as well. Thanks to Shelly Wawrzonek, Donna Celsor and Lisa Chmielewski. Cat Celsor will also be observing the process and will join the team soon.
