Most years we honor our graduates at a Sunday Coffee Hour in May or June. Since we cannot do that this year, please email, to Dennis, names of graduating family members or friends that you would like us to celebrate. Include their address, and a list will be published here, so that those who wish may mail cards. Deadline for me to receive names is May 19. Names (and addresses) will be published in May 24 issue of this newsletter and included in May 24 prayers. (Folks whom Drew or I have already contacted do not need to re-send info. Thanks)
Continuing Financial Giving We understand that the COVID19 epidemic is causing a great deal of stress and confusion for all of us. Without regular in-person gatherings, you may not know how to continue your pledge or even know how to give. And this time of quarantine may be putting a financial strain on you or your family.
The treasurer hopes that you consider continuing to give what you can during this season to help maintain our ministry. Here are three ways you can do that:
1) Mail a check to the church.
2) Use online banking to have your bank send a check directly.
3) The diocese is now processing online gifts on behalf of the

Please make checks payable to Manna from Seven, Inc and mail to their treasurer: Mike Cahill, 9730 Conner Cr, Terre Haute IN 47802.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Deby Veach at
