Time Change for the Daily Office
Beginning Monday, September 14, the times for Morning and Evening Prayer will change. Morning Prayer will begin at 8:30 AM and Evening Prayer will begin at 5 PM, Monday through Saturday. This change reflects an attempt to bring the daily office closer to the center of our life as a parish, at the beginning and end of the day's "Office Hours." While we recognize the new time will be difficult for some, we hope that it will enable a wider spectrum of the parish to participate as we join our voices in the Daily Prayer of the whole Church.  Worship Schedule

Your Old Glasses Will Give New Vision!
Every year thousands of people around the world are matched up with donated glasses and get a fresh vision of life. Please remember to pull those old glasses off the shelf or out of the drawer and bring them along the next time you go to church. Old eyeglasses may be left in a Lion's Club collection box in the church library. The Downtown Lions Club will send your glasses to be sorted and shipped to people in the Third World who have no access to the glasses they so badly need. If you have any questions or concerns contact Ralph Lewis at 314-239-6023 or lewisralphe@gmail.com. Thank you for your help.
