MLK Day of Service

MLK Day of Service – Mon, Jan. 15, 2018

A generous person will be enriched, and one who gives water will get water. (Prov. 11:25)

Join with our parish community as we spend the day in service on Monday, January 15, 2018.  Martin Luther King Jr. stated that one of life’s most persistent and urgent questions is what are you doing for others?  We will have a variety of opportunities to serve others for all ages and all levels of time and energy commitments.  Click here to sign up for one or more volunteer activities.  Please sign up as soon as possible to help us plan to serve our community. If you have any questions, please contact Paige Hanks, Seminarian at the church or at Let us go in peace to love and serve the Lord!
