UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS

May

Wed
Lay Eucharistic Minister Training/Refresher Course @ Christ Episcopal Church
May 18 @ 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Now that we have a priest, Fr. Ron, and some new or returning LEMs, it has been brought to our attention that we could all benefit from some re-training of our roles as Eucharistic ministers. Going over the “why’s” and “how to do things” will benefit all of us. With that in mind, you are invited to a get-together with instructions followed, of course, by pizza, salad, and undoubtedly some adult beverages. We will meet for LEM training on Wednesday, May 18 at 5:30 at Christ Church.

Please let me (randylaf@sbcglobal.net) or Franz (frontoffice@christepiscopalchurch.com) know that you’ll be there.
