Trail Maintenance Project – now through October
Our Council maintains the trail in front of St Elizabeth Church. The trail runs south from the front entrance of the church, to the covered bridge, and north from the front entrance to the trail marker at the end of the church property. Every year the trail is cleaned of trash during the spring and summer months. We need volunteers to walk and clean the trail for the months of April, June, August and October. Ideally, you will clean the trail in the beginning and end of the month. Bring your spouse, family member or a friend. A casual stroll will take you about an hour to walk the trail. Trash grabbers and trash bags are available by contacting John Laager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please click here to sign up!
Prayer for Protection in Time of Pandemic
The Knights of Columbus has published the prayer said by Pope Francis and Archbishop Lori online, calling on members and Catholics to say the prayer over nine days as a novena beginning Sunday. It especially prays “for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable and for those who have died.” It adds: “Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.”
