Haiti Scholarship Fundraiser Continues!
So far, SMM parishioners have generously given 20 Konbit Scholarships for students at St. Paul’s School in Petit Trou. We’re halfway to our goal! Over the next few weeks, the Outreach Committee will continue to raise funds for Konbit scholarships. If you still want to donate but didn’t have a chance yet, please send in a check payable to SMM with “CHP” in the memo line. Each scholarship is $350, and donations of any amount are welcome! Questions? Please contact Mark Christie.
SMM Community Garden Needs Volunteers!
The community garden is asking for more team members. We are looking forward to a very productive garden; last year we delivered hundreds of pounds of organic produce to food banks! Contact: Barb Beaton
Sunday Service Volunteers
Would you like to serve on the Altar Guild, as an Acolyte, Usher, Greeter, etc. during Sunday Morning Services? Sign up here!
Acolytes Needed — Adults and Youth!
Have you ever been interested in becoming an acolyte? They light the altar candles, carry the candle to the aisle for the Gospel reading, assist with preparations for communion, and lead the procession at the end of the service. Training is provided, and this opportunity is open to all; adults and youth! Please contact Tina Fredo for more information.
Provide Altar Flowers
Altar flowers are a powerful way to honor loved ones or special events. To dedicate/donate altar flowers sign up on the bulletin board behind the Welcome Table just inside the main entrance on the left. Email the parish administrator with the dedication as you would like it to appear in the bulletin by 8am on the Monday prior to the week for which you signed up.
Bake Communion Bread!
We need some more bread bakers! We need bread for each week in July, August and September. The recipe is simple – making and baking takes about a half hour on Friday evening or early Saturday morning. Deliver the bread to the church before 10:00 am Saturday. It is nice too if you present it at the offertory on Sunday Morning, but not necessary. This is a wonderful expression of service and care for your church family! Find the recipe here! Contact Janet Poley to volunteer.
Host Coffee Hour
Please consider signing up to sponsor coffee hour for Sunday services. The sign up sheets are located on the bulletin board above the Welcome Table in the left side of the main entrance. Thank you!
Purchase Grocery Cards
Following Sunday services volunteers sell cards for local grocery stores. St. Mary Magdalene receives 5% on all sales. $1,169.78 was raised in the third quarter of 2016! And they are rechargeable! Are you using these cards yet? Contact Colleen Brolin.
Common Cathedral | 4th Friday of each month at 6pm
Come help prepare and serve a hot meal for the Longmont street church. We meet at 6 p.m. under the picnic shelter at the southwest corner of Collyer Park in Longmont at 6th and Collyer. You can drop your items off beforehand by 4:45 in the church kitchen with a Common Cathedral label attached. Contact Barb Earley, Janaki Lefils, or Paul Chyc.
Community Food Share
The Outreach Committee accepts your nonperishable food donations in the basket at the back of church any time. Donations will be presented with the offertory each week and then delivered to various agencies serving people in need. Please bring needed items such as canned meat or fish, soup, cereal, peanut butter, pasta/sauce, and canned vegetables. Contact: Mark Christie
