Please refer any communication regarding the schedule to Julie at the Parish Office by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 601-924-6344. Please make your requests by August 16th.
PARISH DATA BASE UPDATE it is a constant challenge to keep the parish data base updated. With people doing away with land lines and going to cell phones it is hard for us to reach people. So, remember to call the Parish office if your phone numbers change or your address changes. If you are leaving the parish or moving into the parish it is important to let us know that, too. Registration forms are located in the vestibule. Thank You!
ALTAR SOCIETY Parishioners wishing to put flowers at the Altar in memory of a loved one should contact Sharon Hopkins at 601-668-7216 or email@example.com.
IN MEMORIAM the flowers in front of the altar are placed in memory of Matthew “Polska” Gatewood on his birthday by his family, Dr. Scott, Catherine and Robert Gatewood. The family wishes to thank parishioners for their continued support and prayers.
