The meal will consist of lasagna, salad, and cupcakes. Church Volunteers will make the lasagna, Outreach committee  members will provide the salad, and the congregation is asked to donate cupcakes for dessert.
• Community Breakfast, Saturday, June 29, 8:15 to 11am - serving breakfast at the First Congregational Church on Jefferson to the needy is always a good way to give back to the community. See Jim Horan if you’d like to help.

Pastoral Care Team Members Provide Helpful Services

The Pastoral Care Team is now actively serving the members of St. Gregory’s. Each week Team members are scheduled for either Eucharistic Visits or various aspects of Pastoral Care.  Those who are “on duty” are listed on the Server Schedule of the newsletter. Weekly Servers are also listed in Bulletin Announcements on Sundays.  “All members of the congregation are on the Pastoral Team by letting the Team Members know when needs arise." Eucharistic Visitors are Linda Scheerer and Stu Smith.  Pastoral Team Members include Mary Closz, Marge Collinge, Tracy Damm, Barb Huff.. Jim Horan heads up the Transportation & Delivery Team; Jeff Closz organizes the Music Team, and Gayle Katz updates and distributes the Prayer Chain. All members’ phone numbers are listed in the Parish Directory, which has just recently been updated and is available from the church office if you’ve misplaced yours.
