HAVE YOU DISCOVERED THE LARGE BLUE POSTER IN THE FOYER? Take a few moments to check it out, and then use the post-it-notes and pens to write something (directions are on the poster), and add it to the poster. What gifts has God given you? What gifts has God given St. Paul? What gifts do you hope for in the future? What gifts does St. Paul need for the future? How do you share God’s generosity with others? Words will be added to the poster each week to help you with your responses. These responses will help us think about Stewardship!        -Jan Krakow

LEARN ABOUT THE HEALTH SECURITY ACT THIS MORNING (it will be acted upon in the NM Legislature in their session beginning January 15, 2019).

St. Andrew Church has been very involved for several years in the preparation of this Act.     -Ivan Westergaard
