The monthly property committee is meeting by phone or Zoom on usually the first Thursday of the month at noon. The Property Ministry sees to the upkeep and maintenance of our building and grounds. Members work on projects as complex as replacing the roof to as simple as changing a light bulb. This group also coordinates the annual parish clean up. Our grounds are maintained and beautified by volunteers who mow the lawn or tend to the gardens.Contact Amy Keach for the Zoom link for the meetings as it changes each month.

Christian Ed- Ordinary Virtues: Spirituality in the Lord of the Rings
Nearly everyone knows something about Middle Earth, the rich fantasy world that emerged from the imagination of JRR Tolkien. Fewer people know that Tolkien was a devout Catholic, and that his stories and characters have much to say about his view of the faithful life. 276 S College Ave, Newark, DE 19711, USA (276 S College Ave, Newark, DE 19711, USA)
In this short (3-week) series, we will be guided through the religious landscape of Middle Earth by Mark Eddy Smith's book Tolkien's Ordinary Virtues: Exploring the Spiritual Themes of the Lord of the Rings. Come along for some clips from Peter Jackson's LOTR movies, and stay for some spirited discussion of what Frodo and Gandalf and even Sauron (the villain of the stories) teach us about living and moving and having our being in God.
In-person in the church building, and via Zoom.
ALL are Welcome
