Please consider volunteering. The EDGE is seeking one or two adults to be small group leaders. What does this mean? You sit at a table with 7-8 youth and listen to the monthly presentation. When it is time for small group discussion, you help keep your group on task and lead them through the questions (provided on your table). There is no lesson planning or presenting involved. Please consider volunteering.

Cell Phones, Eyeglasses, and Hearing Aids

During the month of October, we will have boxes for collection at the north entrance, east entrance, and in the narthex at church. The Fremont Crisis Center (The Bridge_ gets proceeds from the used cell phones. This money is used to help provide services and some of the cell phones are used locally by victims of domestic violence for 911 emergency calls. The Lions Club takes the eyeglasses/hearing aides and they are measured for prescription, and then sent to Third World countries for use by those in need. All donations are greatly appreciated and in this way our parish can be of assistance to the greater community.

Theology on Tap is held at J's Steakhouse on the dates listed. The presentations begin at 5:30 pm. Please mark these dates on your calendar: October 23: "Angels, Demons, Exorcism and Deliverance" by Fr. Boyd; November 13: "Judgement" by Fr. Dave; December 11: "Our Lady of Guadalupe" by Fr. Boyd.
