You may not be familiar with this Advent tradition at our parish. You are welcome to choose a name tag for a needy child in the local community who needs help with Christmas. The tag has the age, clothing sizes, and any special wishes the child may have. Please wrap the gifts, and label each one with the tag number from the Angel tag. Or, put them in a large bag or box, and attach the Angel tag securely. Return the gifts to the church by December 9th. We have no duplicates, and the tag shows which child receives your gifts. Thank you so much for supporting this important ministry!
The Women’s Guild will host their annual Cookie Walk Cookie on December 10th and 11th. Please consider donating some baked cookies. Put different kinds of cookies on separate platters. Thank you everyone for your continued support of our parish!
We will have our prayer pillowcases on display at Our Lady of Grace on December 4 and 7th. The prayer pillowcases make great Christmas gifts for your children, grandchildren, godchildren and anyone you know who would love to rest their head at night on these beautiful depictions of Jesus, Mary and the Saints. If you want to place an order before or after the sale, contact Mary Ruth Jones, 706-348-7384, email@example.com ~ Each pillowcase is $15, and the altar servers keep $6 profit.
Thank you to all parishioners who have completed and submitted your “We are Changing Lives” Commitment Card to the church. We are overjoyed to see the outpouring of support and are excited for the ways it will help our parish grow. As a reminder, all commitments need to be submitted to the church no later than Monday, December 19th in order to be accounted for in the final Summary Report. PLEASE complete and submit your card to the church even if you are unable to make a change to your current level of giving. For those registered parishioners not currently supporting the church with regular offertory gifts, please consider a monthly gif to support the needs of our parish. What you do at St. Paul’s Matters!
SOR parents, your child has attended a presentation for Family Promise this past week, and has brought home a brochure about it for you. We would like you and your children to volunteer to help with our designated family during the week of December 18. Cook some food, bring your kids to play with our guests, or couples can spend the night. Please make this a Christmas for your children to remember, by setting an example to help others. Details are posted in this week’s bulletin insert. Please contact Sara Dispennette by email or phone at: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 706-754-0051 for more information
Last week our Administrative Assistant, Lourdes Emanuelli, gave me the bad news that she is leaving the parish for personal reasons. She will be with us until December; which means that her position will be vacant. This position is bilingual, so we can continue to serve both communities. Once we organize the details for interviews, we’ll let you know; for those who are interested, please contact us. Lourdes, we will miss you.
We are nearing the end of our Archbishop’s Annual Appeal for 2016. Please remember the pledge you made back in February. We have until December 31st to get our pledges in. If you haven’t made a pledge and would like to do so, just let me know at email@example.com or 770-715-1599. If you have already met your pledge, thank you! Remember, God loves a cheerful giver and what you do at St. Paul’s has an eternal impact. Your Life Matters! Darrel Chaney – Stewardship Council.
Our new children’s nursery is off to a good start! It is located in Our Lady of Grace building, in the kindergarten classroom. We offer the nursery during the 10:00 am Mass, and hope to begin a Saturday evening nursery, too. We could use help in the schedule. Moms who participate in the nursery are asked to give some time, and for all you grandmas or aunts out there, we would love to have you give an hour during the month. This gives busy moms and dads time out to enjoy their Mass time. We offer care for Infants through Age 4 only. Please contact Laurie if you can help, or have any questions: 770-654-9707
