LITURGY PLANNING MEETING

The meeting to plan January liturgies will be held on Thursday, December 20, 9:30, at the Riverwalk Community Room. Please join us! It's our combined ideas that create such meaningful liturgies! And it's fun!

And let Joanne or anyone on the liturgy committee know if you’d like to present a homily.  All in CLS would love to hear your stories, your ideas, or your insights on favorite topics.  Let us know, too, if you have an idea for an guest homilist.

THE FUNDRAISER FOR SOPHIA’S DAVE HELLING SCHOLARSHIP FUND WAS A BIG SUCCESS!

Many thanks to everyone who contributed money to CLS for SOPHIA’s newly created Dave Helling Scholarship Fund for leadership training! The fundraiser CLS organized to provide start-up money for the fund was a great success. Twenty-four people gathered for brunch on September 9th at Laraine and Mike O’Brien’s beautiful home, visiting and enjoying the lovely day. We all greatly appreciated Laraine and Mike’s gracious hospitality, and appreciated, too, the delicious food provided by CLS people! The amount raised at the event, along with checks from people who couldn’t be there, was close to $1,500.00!
