One benefit parishioners enjoy about the greenery sale is the delivery service. This service will continue, but in order to be successful, we need volunteers. Help is needed on Saturday, December 9 from 9:00 am-11:00 am and Thursday, December 14 from 6:00-8:00 pm.
If you are available to volunteer your time, email Eduardo Soto at email@example.com.

Granville Ave or placed in the mail slot in the side (west) red door next to the Rectory side yard if the Rectory office is closed. Orders can also be sent to NCA to the attention of Eduardo Soto. Checks should be made out to St. Gertrude. Please note "Greenery" in the memo line.
