Save the date for September 11th, 2021 from 8am to 2pm.  This is an all-hands-on-deck date.  Can you swipe a dust cloth?  Can you swing a pick axe?  Do you like to throw things away?  How about organizing?  Can you swipe a paint brush?  Would you like to demolition an old bathroom?  We have work for you!

We have a treasure in our beautiful parish, but that beauty takes work!  Gene Mattler and Mike Arlt are spearheading this effort.  (A great opportunity for Confirmation or High School service hours, btw!).  We need young and old alike to get this done.

We’ll have coffee and donuts in the morning, and a BBQ lunch provided by the Knights of Columbus.  Come for the whole day, or come for an hour.

Questions?  Willing to help out?  Have heavy equipment to loan?  Contact Gene (314 280 0266) or Mike (314 603 3548) or the parish office – parishoffice@mygoodshepherd.com.
