Women’s Guild Yard Sale

The Woman’s Guild is sponsoring a yard sale in the Parish Hall the weekend of August 15th – 17th.  There are still some tables available to reserve for selling your unwanted treasures.  The UNG students return to campus that weekend, so your unwanted items may be just the stuff they are looking for to furnish their dorms and apartments.  Please see today’s bulletin insert for sale hours.  For information contact Camille Payne, 706-867-9773 or Mary Ann Clagett, 706-864-4965.

Who Are Catechists?

Pope Francis answered this question saying, “They are people who keep the memory of God alive; they keep it alive in themselves and they are able to revive it in others. This is something beautiful.”  If you feel the call, our St. Luke children would love to have you for their catechist!  NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY!  We will assist you in all that you need!  Class times are Sunday mornings, 9:15 until 10:30 am, from September – May.  We have needs from 1st through 8th grades. Call or email our DRE, Kelley Peffer, for more information.

The Saturday, 3am-4am hour will soon become vacant, and the other hours between 2am and 6am only have one Guardian each. Call Leisa at 706-864-4779 to volunteer.
