We would like to invite anyone not already on our rotas to lend a hand. In particular, another Communion Steward would be a great help. Please see one of the stewards if you would be willing to participate.  Additional volunteers are also wanted for the flower rota.  Please speak to Marjorie if you are able to help.

Prayer Requests: A form on which you can write the name of anyone you would like to be mentioned in our Prayers of Intercession can be found on the window sill in the vestibule
