  We will celebrate Palm Sunday this coming Sunday, and as is our tradition we will have readers help enact the passion narrative. Let me know if you'd  like to read a part. You can volunteer Sunday morning, before we begin the service. The parts are easy and very short. Also, we will have a children's homily as well. So bring those kiddos!

See you in Church,
