Parish Library: We plan to open a library in the Hughes Center for the use of parishioners. This library will contain books on religion and the church as well as history, biographies, science, even some novels. We need bookcases. If you have bookcases (preferably 6 feet tall x 3 feet wide) you would care to donate, we would be very grateful. Cash donations to buy bookcases would also be welcome. If you can help, please contact Toni Webster
