Baptism Class
Do you want to have your child baptized? Have you taken the baptism class? If not, the next class will be held Saturday, June 25 at 9:30am. Please call the parish office, 276-4042, if you plan to attend so we have enough materials available.
Spring Blood Drive
On Thursday, May 26th St. Mary of Nazareth and Zion Lutheran are co-sponsoring a blood drive to be held in the St Mary of Nazareth parish hall. The drive will be held from 3:00 to 6:00pm. Blood donors are needed to help make the drive a success. The need for the blood is great and to donate is performing a very Christian service for the community. If you wish to donate, please contact David Miller at 270-1897 to schedule an appointment.
GALZ Catholic-style Yoga
On Tuesday, May 24th at 6:30 pm Margaret Gass has agreed to come back and lead us in a yoga session in the parish hall. If you recall, Margaret leads us in her gentle, \"Catholic\" version of yoga. This time we\'re going to try getting on the floor (if you have a mat, bring one), but I\'m certain she will accommodate each one of us whether or not we choose to stay in our chairs! Please RSVP to the Faith Formation Office, 276-7589, no later than Monday, May 23rd.
