HOMEBOUND COMMUNION MINISTRY

Are you homebound? Do you know someone who is homebound?

We have Eucharistic Ministers to the Homebound who are more than happy to take Communion to our homebound parishioners either once or twice a month. If you would like a Eucharistic Minister to visit, please contact the parish office or Barbara Harrison.

BOOK DROP OFF

We will begin collecting books for the book sale on August 1 & 2, before and after each weekend Mass. If you are unable to drop your books off over the weekend, call the office to make arrangements during the week or drop them off Tue & Wed, 5-9pm.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Volunteers are needed to help sort, and set up books to get ready for the sale. We will be working Tuesday - Thursday, 5-9pm. Join us for a couple of hours and get a free preview of our selection. Call the office, email Rose rosew@stphilipneripdx.org, or signup in the church foyer.
