Car Needed. Can You Help?
We welcome Fr. Chris Varghese to our parish as a Parochial Vicar. Fr. Chris is a religious order priest and new to the United States. He needs a car to carry out his ministry in our parish.
If you, or someone you know, has a car you would be willing to give Fr. Chris it would be a tremendous gift to him and his ministry. Fr. Chris is not a mechanic and does not have money for repairs, so a car would need to be in working order. If you have a car or an idea of how to help Fr. Chris, please call David at the Parish Office: 524-7421. Thank you.
