Annual Reports: What has God done in your ministry area during 2017? The Annual Report is first and foremost an opportunity to rejoice in the ways that God is at work in and through our parish family. We would like all ministries to be included. Reports are due January 14th to the Church Office; or send via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Tree Removal: COOS’ favorite tree will be removed. The tree with yellow blossoms next to the Memorial Garden is becoming much more dangerous. Several limbs had to be removed after Irma. What is remaining is weak and may fall on buildings, and the stump is not viable. We are contracting the removal of the entire tree. Since this tree is well known by many, we are announcing the removal so that those who may be concerned will know in advance.
Christmas Socks Party: Inviting all children and grandchildren of the congregation (up to age 12) to a special event on Saturday, December 9 at 2:00pm. We need donations of Christmas Socks (crew socks, not anklets or stockings) between now and December 2. There’s a collection box in the Parish Hall, and we thank you in advance for your generosity. Questions? Call Rita Giuffrida at 242-8374.

Advent Adult Forum will be taught by Deacon Tom. He’ll be doing a book study on “Mary for All Christians” by John Macquarrie. It is recommended you purchase the book (latest version, 2001) prior to class as it will be used for reference frequently.
