Sacristy Help Needed from Abbe Gilbert
Thank you to all those who have been helping out at the oratory. Your help is greatly appreciated! I will be gone from June 22 until July 9 for a retreat and tonsure ceremony. Afterwards I will leave again on July 24 and will be back on August 6 for vacation. In those 2 instances, help is needed in the sacristy, altar serving, and watering the plants in and around the Oratory. If you are willing to help, please contact me.
