Use the envelope which comes with the Bishop’s letter or place a clearly marked check in the Sunday collection.

GARDEN HIGHLIGHTS

Many thanks to hard working Nancy Wenzel and helpers in the Tri-Parish Garden at Assumption!

Despite an unfinished irrigation system and record heat, volunteers were able to harvest and donate many vegetables to St. Vincent’s this summer. A big thanks to Mark Blanc who will complete the irrigation system this month! Look for an informational flyer Spring 2015 to start off the new season. With the new irrigation system, more help and ideas will be needed!

Honors – Andrea Renholds and Kathy Martuscelli from St. Francis presented a display about the garden at the Bishops of Washington State’s Cornerstone Conference in Tacoma, October 17/18.

A representative from the federal/state SNAP program (Food stamps, nutritional education), Olympia, visited the garden in August.

Addition to Garden: donated statues, streamside, and mural in progress on back of shed.

Stewardship Reflection: October 19th

Each year at tax time, we conscientiously give “to Caesar what belongs to Caesar.” Does my stewardship indicate that I am as faithful about giving “to God what belongs to God”?
