This Thursday…

Is a training session from 1-4 PM for those people who will man the reception center in a disaster.

Is a Thankful Thursday meal at 6:30 PM and the theme is Food on a Stick.  What is that you ask?  I searched for “food on a stick” and was surprised at the many results.   As usual, bring what you can- stick or no stick!

Do you have questions about St. Peter’s?  We would love to chat with you.  Call us at (540) 659-6366.
