The need for persons willing to serve in ministries related to serving our Spanish speaking brothers and sisters is great, especially in the rural areas of our Archdiocese. The Archdiocese of Louisville has offered Conversational Spanish classes at the Maloney Center in Louisville for several years, but because of the travel involved attendance has been sparse from people living outside of Jefferson County.
To make the classes more readily available in the Shelby/Spencer County areas, the director of the program has offered to have the classes in the Shelbyville/Taylorsville area, if there is sufficient interest., The classes are 3-hour sessions for 7 consecutive weeks.
If you feel called to this ministry and would be willing to attend the Spanish classes if they were held near here, please email Carl at firstname.lastname@example.org. Besides your name, Carl needs to know if you would be able to attend the classes during the day. The cost for the class has been $50, which includes the class workbook.
A reminder that you are encouraged to attend the parish reception on Sunday, after our 11:30 Mass, in honor of Fr. Tom Clark's 50th Anniversary of his Ordination to the Priesthood. Fr. Clark served our parish from 1985-89, and was our pastor when the Covenant Agreement was signed with Taylorsville United Methodist and First Christian Church of Taylorsville. Please stop by to wish him well.
A sign-up sheet is on the table near the loft stairs for teen and adult volunteers needed for our Covenant Churches' VBS, which will be held at All Saints this year. Contact me if you have any questions.
Another sign-up sheet is on the table near the Cry Room for those who are planning to attend the June 10th Farewell Potluck for Fr. Paul Beach - and we hope you are able to attend to thank him for his service to our parish. Even though his term was only one year, we have been blessed by his ministry to us, and his leadership. Help is needed to set-up, serve and clean-up afterwards - please contact me to volunteer for that, too.
