- Hosting Coffee Fellowship after Liturgy

The Parish Council invites members to volunteer to host a Coffee Fellowship Hour in Cotros Hall during this Ecclesiastical Year. The intent is to offer refreshments of your choice that will encourage social interaction among the membership, and opportunities to meet and greet visitors and new members. The coffee, sugar/sweetener, napkins, plates, cups and utensils are provided by the Church.  Please bring creamer and juice. 

This is a great opportunity to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or to honor a loved one. Photos/memorabilia are encouraged for a table display. Families or groups of individuals can co-host as well. 

Please sign up on the Coffee Hour Host list on the Bulletin Board outside Cotros Hall. If you have questions, please call Erin in the Church Office, 327-8177.  Coffee will always be available when there is no host. 

Thank you for your consideration and hopeful participation.
