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.
