Here are your short and sweet updates for this week:
Found: Teapot- An indigo blue teapot was left after the Nov 5 brunch. Claim in the office.
Mystery ladder: A ladder showed up on campus around the time of our campus clean-up in September. It has been located along side Father Brian’s office window. Could whomever owns it, please claim and move it before it “walks off”? Thanks!
Missing: Basic broom from Parish Hall storage closet. Has anyone seen it?
Next Week: Parish Administrator’s Office- Next week, the Parish Office will be open on Monday (one time only) and Tuesday, and will be closed Wednesday and Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Next Week: Custodian- Campus will be cleaned next Saturday evening, rather than on Friday, due to the Thanksgiving holiday. So Altar Guild, don’t panic if you notice wastebaskets have not been emptied etc when you prepare the sanctuary on the morning of November 25.
Next Week: Bible Study- Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no Bible Study next week (Wed. Nov 22).
