A few reminders as our weekend approaches . . .
1) Be looking in your mailbox for our Fall Newsletter and for upcoming Christian Education programs.
2) Don't forget to check out our new website: www.christchurchlaredo.org. If you have thoughts, corrections, or comments, e-mail them to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
3) We have a young, college-age parishioner that is in need of a suitcase or backpack to borrow until the beginning of the year. She has a scholarship to study abroad for one semester, but needs an additional suitcase. She could also use some financial help. If you have questions, need more information, or would like to help - please call Fr. Paul ASAP. She flies out on Saturday!
4) Don't forget we will be having a "Trial Run" for our new Multi-Generational Sunday School this Sunday - August 31st. All ages will gather together in the Parish Hall at 10:00 a.m. for 5-10 minutes. Then we will break into groups: Nursery Age, Grade School, Middle/High School, Adult English, and Adult Spanish. Come join us! Classes will end promptly at 10:45 a.m. to allow everyone time to get to church by 11:00 a.m.
5) A note to ALL NURSERY PERSONNEL - with Sunday School beginning at 10:00 a.m. - it is VERY IMPORTANT that you are in the Nursery & ready for the children by 9:45 a.m. EACH SUNDAY! We also expect you to remain in the Nursery until 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.
6) The Diocese of West Texas requires all paid staff to participate in the program "Safeguarding God's Children: Preventing Child Sexual Abuse". Sunday School teachers and Youth Leaders are also encouraged to participate. We will be offering this training sometime during September or October. If you would like to attend - or would like more information, please speak to Fr. Paul or Connie Miles. We will try to schedule the 3 hour session at a time that works best for those attending.
