The “Get Herman to Church Committee” needs you. As you may know for the last 13 months or so, Herman Giersch, a founding member of Holy Apostles, has been coming to church on the last Sunday of each month (and now also on the 3rd Sunday of those months in which there are 5 Sundays). Right now we have 5 people active on the committee (not including David Lees who rejoined the choir so he will be dropping off after this month). We can use your help! The more people on the committee the fewer Sundays each person will be on duty. Herman lives at Granite Farms Estates in Wawa. It is on Rt. 1 just before you get to the old Franklin Mint building. It takes about 20 minutes from the church each way and you are responsible for picking him up, signing him out, sitting with him at church, and taking him back. He is ambulatory and needs little help (except to put his walker in and out of the car). Herman is very appreciative of our help and loves coming back to his church. If you can help out, please contact Dan Dugan, 610.642.6128, 610.761.2010 (cell); firstname.lastname@example.org to become part of the committee.

The decision has been made to dispose of the 4 pews from the front room of the Parish Hall and the Godly play area. If any parishioner is interested in taking a pew or pews(s) for their personal use before they are offered to the general public, please contact Bonnie in the office and we will allocate 1 or more pews to you. We do have an outside party which is interested in them if there are no takers. The pews must be removed from the premises by October 17th.
