To Help With the Parish Feast
It takes an army of people to make a successful feast. We need people to help with the outside Kitchen and to help in general. We also need people who are good with children (and are on the Parish CORI list) to help with Kid-A-Palooza. We need some adults and especially teens to help with the outside games. Finally, we need people to help carry the statues in the procession. There are sign-up lists in the Church on the back table, or you can sign-up on line by clicking on the link below. As in the past we are using Sign-up Genius for on-line sign-up.

Email & Cell Phone Contact Drive
During the entire Summer we are doing a drive to collect email addresses and cell phone numbers of all parishioners. The main reason for this is that through our new Data Base System (Gabriel) we can send out an email or text blast. It is a free and quick way to contact parishioners. There are forms in in the pews that can be filled out and put in the collection basket. You can email up your updated information (office@sjogsomerset), or to fill out an on-line form click here. If you email us please include the information of your spouse or partner living in the same household.
