December Friends of St. Joseph Meeting
We are gathering Monday, December 8th for a potluck supper at the Fisher’s. Bring something to share. Kathy will bring something hot to put in a bowl probably chili or soup. Come anytime between 4- 4:30 so we can be ready to start eating as close to 4:30 as possible.
Following supper we will:
- Pray together.
- Hear about “Call to Action” from Carolyn Puccio.
- Plan our calendar for the year. (Bring your calendar.)
Think if there is a topic you might want to present or lead us in discussion on.
