New President of Laity, Ms. Joi Lenoce
Our little parish, St. Francis of Assisi Mission now has a President of Laity,
Ms. Joi Lenoce. Our tiny congregation unanimously elected Joi to be the parish's first President and she's already introducing new actions and activities such as food collection for the hungry at Thanksgiving and music during mass. (Are curtains and drapes coming next???)
Brittney and Aaron Taylor to our parish, along with their delightful girls: Peyten (4) and Blaise (2).
