Jolie continues to be such a blessing to our community! On Saturday, December 8th, all the Sisters and Associates of SNJM renew their commitments to the congregation of Holy Names…. and Jolie was among the Associates! In addition to the photos of the commitment renewal, is a photo we took on Sunday of Jolie with her sponsors, Sandi and Sr Maryann. Congratulations, Jolie!
Sugar Cookies Needed!! The Youth Group will be decorating cookies for the Sunday Lunch Program’s Christmas Dinner, after their rehearsal for Christmas Eve on December 22nd. They are hoping for at least 8 dozen un-frosted sugar cookies to be donated. The cookies need to be brought to church next weekend. (Dec 15th & 16th) If you are willing to bake a dozen or more cookies, that would be a huge help! Thank you! #SAYM
