Photo Directory Coming Soon!

Our synod listening session participants expressed a desire to rebuild a sense of community and get to know each other after the challenges of the pandemic, and one specific suggestion was to publish a new parish directory to facilitate connections. Arrangements have been made for directory photo sessions to be held this summer, and now we need your help to make it happen! Please review the slots on the sign up genius to see how you can assist and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!
