Coughs and colds.
We are entering the colder months of the year. If anyone is concerned about participating in the communion my suggestion is just to receive the bread but not the chalice. This is still a full participation in the eucharist.


Edith thanks everyone for their good wishes and cards received on the occasion of her 90th Birthday.
