Elias Northcutt's baptism/baby shower

Matushka Patricia Whiteford
 

Dear Church family,

On behalf of the godparents of Elias Northcutt (son of Dean and Brittany Northcutt), they would like to cordially invite you to join them in welcoming him into the Church at his baptism this Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 10 a.m.  

Due to Brittany's complication before Elias' birth, the Sisterhood was not able to throw her a nice baby shower; if you would like to bring a baby gift, you can do so with a Target gift card or money - please do not feel obligated at all.

Please RSVP to me privately to help the godparents to get a headcount to prepare enough food at the reception.  God bless you all as we pray for a grace filled baptism and celebration of a new life.

In Christ,
Matushka Patricia

Dear parish family,
With Fr. John's blessing, Matushka Jennifer and I have volunteered on behalf of St. Jonah's to participate in the 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigils outside the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Houston. (Learn more about the 40 Days for Life organization here: https://www.40daysforlife.com/en/)

Parking will be on the street. We will not be interacting with Planned Parenthood staff or visitors, but peacefully praying for all.

Please sign up to provide food for Sunday trapeza from Oct. - Dec. 2021

Matushka Patricia Whiteford
 

Dear Church family,

In order for us to have Sunday school and allow our church family to fellowship after the liturgy, we need everyone (single young men and women, family with/without children, catechumens, young or old) to participate to make trapeza possible. The more people participate, the less it will cost to provide the food, and in fewer frequency.

Please take a moment to click on the link below to read the detailed instructions on how it works, i.e. your responsibilities, what kind of food you need to buy, when you need heat up the frozen food and make coffee, how much you need to reimburse the Sisterhood for the pre-purchased food, etc. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.


Thank you in advance for your willingness to help. May God bless our growing church family as we study His Words and apply them to our lives for His glory!

In Christ,
Matushka Patricia

Re: Used Cars and Tile work

Jessica Kravtsov
 

Hi Fr. John,

I attached the card of the man who did bathroom tile work for us. He did it through a contractor, but gave me his card for his own, on the side thing.

Hello Folks,

The Morgan family just moved into the area, and they are wondering if anyone is either selling a car, or can recommend a used car buying avenue? Also, they need someone who can lay tile, so if you have a good recommendation for that, please let me know.
