BROADWAY ASSISTANCE CENTER – The Society of Mary sponsors an evening of helping at the Broadway Assistance Center when there is a fifth Wednesday in the month. Our next opportunity to volunteer is Wednesday, September 30, from 4:45 pm to 7:15 pm. We need at least 11 volunteers. All are welcome to help! If you can’t be there for the entire time, please do what you are able. There is a signup sheet in the Narthex.

NURSERY SITTER: We are in need of a Nursery Sitter. Do you know someone who would be great for our nursery kids? We pay a good wage for relatively easy and delightful (but responsible) work — mainly supervising and interacting with our young children. Kindness, humor and patience are required; childcare experience is preferred but not necessary. If you know someone, please have them contact Meg Beck at 303-489-2067 for more information.

THE SOCIETY OF MARY has a daily intercessory prayer ministry. You do not need to be a guild member to submit a prayer request. There are blue prayer cards in the narthex and at Our Lady of Walsingham Shrine in the chapel. There are five categories: 1) In Thanksgiving, 2) For Those Who Are Sick, 3) For those on Need, 4) For the Departed, and 5) For the Parish & Community. Ward members offer the prayer requests at the shrine every day for three weeks. This is separate from the parish intercession list and is designed to accommodate prayers that are more specific in nature. You may renew your request after three weeks or submit a new request at any time. The ward encourages our fellow parishioners to take advantage of this prayer ministry.

KING SOOPERS, SAFEWAY AND NATURAL GROCER GIFT CARDS/VOUCHERS are available in the curate’s office following each Sunday Mass. Please make your check payable to Saint Michael & All Angels’ Church, and note on the memo line “Food Vouchers”. When you purchase your gift cards/vouchers please consider buying one to help support Urban Peak – their needs are great!
