Get Well Soon!

Rita Maggio, our director of Music Ministry, broke her foot a few weeks ago. Unable to put any weight it, she won’t be able to play at church for at least another six weeks. Cards and other forms of well wishes and support can be brought to the Rectory or dropped in the collection basket. Please keep Rita in your prayers!
