The Fellowship Committee is integral in many of the evangelization and ministry aspects of our parish. Everything from hosting events and dinners, bereavement luncheons, Fish Fridays, welcoming letters and cards and dinners for the sick and shut-ins, and book club to name but some of the things they do. Mary Ann Dunlay has agreed to take over the chair position of this committee left absent when Kathy Will moved this summer to Hampstead. Assisting her as vice chairs will be Anne Talvacchio (former chair) and Mary Kaye Cassidy. I am very appreciative to all three of these ladies for taking on these leadership roles and look forward to a great year of Fellowship. Please offer your assistance when you can help with one of their projects.
Each year the Pastoral Council holds an educational day for the council and we are opening it up to the whole parish this year. On Saturday, November 8, Msgr. Rick Hilgartner will lead a workshop on “Church Architecture and Design” here at Resurrection. Msgr. Hilgartner, a priest of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, was the former head of the office of Worship for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and is presently the president of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians.
This is to lay some ground work for consideration for either a future church or a renovation of our present building. He will address church architecture from both a historical perspective and from a present cultural and theological understanding.
The day will begin with coffee and refreshments at 9:30am and will formally start at 10:00am in the Church. We plan to end by 2:30 or 3:00pm with time for lunch. There is no need to register, however, if you would like us to obtain a box lunch for you for $5 please let Monica Souza know by November 4. You can either:
complete the form below and drop it in the collection basket next week or
email Monica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can pay for the box lunch the day of the workshop, and, of course, you are also welcome to bring your own or go out.
Just a reminder that on the weekend of November 8/9 we are collecting Spam and gently used towels as well as the baby bottles.
