Friendly Visitors Ministry

Nearly everyone has been a “friendly visitor” to someone. It does not require going to meetings, giving reports and/or being on a roster. When you missed someone at Mass and checked on them, heard someone needed help and you helped, called someone to chat and let them know they are thought of and missed, you are communicating that that person is still a valued member of the church family and thus, you are being a “friendly visitor”! If you are or know someone needing to be reconnected to church family by a phone call, occasional visit or bringing to church you can call Rita Canfield @ 910-287-6649 and she can refer them to someone in their area. If you’re willing to be a visitor, let Rita know and she will refer you as needed. Since Covid changes, it is harder to know who needs a visitor and some visitors are unavailable. Please let Rita know if you are available or need this ministry. This does not include bring communion, for that, one needs to call Pat McLaughlin @ 910-287- 5479.

Support For People with Intellectual Disabilities

LAMB is a NC non-profit organization (IRS 501(c)3) supporting those with intellectual disabilities, like Special Olympics. Normally to provide funds for LAMB the Knights of Columbus would conduct “tootsie roll drives” in front of Walmart and Lowes grocery, but not now due to Covid. To continue supporting the special needs people in our community, we are asking our St. Brendan’s community to help us by donating online through the home page of our website at KofC-9039 You can donate using PayPal or credit cards (a 1.5% processing fee is charged) or you can send a check to LAMB Foundation of NC, Inc., 6420-A1 Rea Rd, Suite 312, Charlotte, NC 28277. Please put Council 9039 on the memo line. We thank you for your support and ask that you let friends or family know of this simple way to support our less fortunate neighbors.

Note on Offertory Envelopes

Dear Parishioners,

The Offertory Envelopes get sent from Our Sunday Visitor based in Huntington, Indiana. They do not get mailed from the parish office! As many parishioners have experienced, from time to time there is an unexpected delay in the mailing of the envelopes, but they will eventually get to you!

Thank You,

Prayer of St. Brendan the Navigator
"Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown. Give me the faith to leave old ways and break fresh ground with You.

Christ of the mysteries, I trust You to be stronger than each storm within me. I will trust in the darkness and know that my times, even now, are in Your hand. Tune my spirit to the music of heaven, and somehow, make my obedience count for You." ... Amen
