The Way of St. James

Please take a moment to pray for parishioner Will Whitlow, Fr. Joshua Allen, and their group of fellow pilgrims from Georgia Tech as they journey on a 162 mile section of the Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James) in Spain. They are spending 11 days in spiritual retreat as they retrace the steps of St. James.

Thank You!

A huge thank you to Molly Link, Fern Bergeron, Kim Opferbeck, Stacey Gale, Stephanie Preston, Jacque Hornsby, Helen Bishop, and Terry Bishop and all the others who worked so hard on the LTCCW luncheon. Once again it was a very successful event.

Mark Your Calendars for “Shipwrecked” VBS

Vacation Bible School will be held from June 11th – 15th this year. Our theme is “Shipwrecked: Rescued By Jesus”. Pictured to the left is our new friend Moe who will help our children discover that “when they are powerless, Jesus rescues”! Kids will have incredible Bible learning experiences that they can see, touch and even taste! We need many adult and teen leaders to help the program run smoothly. If you would like to help make this a memorable week, stop by and see DRE Michael T. Barrett in the parish office. You can also contact him at (706-884-4224) or via email at mbarrett@stpeterslagrange.net.
