Building Usage Calendar
Anyone wishing to use the parish hall for meetings or other gatherings must schedule it through Amy (1 month advance notice would be appreciated). There is a calendar in the parish hall entrance. The host of the meeting/gathering must sign in and out on that calendar, and the host is also responsible for cleanup of the hall. Thank you very much for your cooperation. Everyone’s cooperation is appreciated.
Turn in your unused or expired medication for safe disposal at the MedReturn Drug Collection Unit inside the Bradford County Courthouse in Towanda, Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm.

Recycle For The Roof
Now that our commitment to Kajo Keji has been completed, let's continue our 5₵ recycling efforts to benefit our roof/steeple project! Please bring in your clean and not crushed 5₵ plastic bottles and cans and leave in the entry way of the Parish Hall where there is a box.
Please make sure it has the NY 5₵ stamp on it or it will not be accepted by the recycling center.
All proceeds will go to the roof/steeple project!
We collected over $1000 for Kajo Keji so keep those bottles and cans coming in!
Any questions, please see Debi Weisbrod.
There is holy water in the baptismal font so you can bless yourself as you enter and leave the church
