Beloved in Christ-

The Sunday School year for children from 1st through 6th grade is in full swing.   Mrs. Taylor leads the class at 10:20am in the Sunday School room.

Adult Sunday School also continues with Fr. Thierry reviewing the Apostles’ Creed.  This class meets at 10:30am in the rectory basement.

Please remember that next Sunday, November 5th is “FALL BACK” Sunday.  Daylight Savings Time ends early next Sunday morning, so remember to turn your clocks back an hour before you retire Saturday evening.

Starting this week, Fr. Roddy will lead two Bible study sessions each Thursday, at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Both classes will begin a study of St. Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians.
