Project Cover Up

Sunday, October 21 was the date for St. E's Youth Project Cover Up.  Youth and volunteer adults gathered in the Parish Hall to construct blankets to be given to children who live at the Ebenezer Orphanage.  It was a worthwhile project and a great gathering.


Parents Weekend

The weekend of October 19-20-21 was the annual Parents' Weekend at Appalachian State.  If you were at the 11:00 AM Mass on Sunday, October 21, you noticed that it was Parents' Weekend here, too.  An overflow crowd filled both the Sanctuary and the Gathering Space to capacity and slightly beyond.  It was great to see so many visitors. Come again soon!

RCIA Classes Begin

An enthusiastic group of people ranging in age from college age to retired has been meeting together on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM for the RCIA Class of 2019.  Joining them in a show of support are a number of alums from the last three RCIA classes of past years.  So far this has been an exciting, educational, and interesting class.  The new Team Leader, Tom Trueman, started things off with a bang, assisted by Fr. Matthew Codd, and 2019 Team Members Janette Bracken, Carol Brown, and Ralph Lentz.  Members of this class who complete the class and choose to do so will be received into Full Communion in the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil on Saturday, April 20, 2019.
