CARDINAL MAHONY CHAT
Have a question to ask Cardinal Mahony? Here is your chance
to do just that. Send your question NOW to be submitted
during the chat session on Friday, March 19, 2010.
Since 1996 Cardinal Mahony has conducted an online chat
session (originally on CompuServe, later with AOL, and now
with ChurchWerks). This year he will first conduct a private chat with school
students from the archdiocese (this year with St. John Chrysostom School), and then in a nationwide chat session
that YOU can join in. This is this the Cardinal's 14th
annual online appearance and one of the highlights for the
40,000 attendees at the four-day event.
Congress could not function without the hundreds of volunteers who give of their time. All pre-registered volunteers are required to attend the Volunteer Meeting that will be held on February 23, 2010 at 7:30 pm at St. Vincent School Hall, 2333 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90007 (between 23rd St. and Adams Blvd.).
If you aren't on the Volunteer list and you
are interested in volunteering, we always have a need for Eucharistic Ministers for the two Closing Liturgies in the Arena.
also have a need this year for three volunteers to help the florists on Wednesday, March 17, 2010
(the day before Youth Day). Activities include unloading supplies, preparation of flowers, delivery of arrangements and other jobs as needed. Some activities require lifting. Time: 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Parking fee will be provided.
NOTE: If you've submitted an email to RECflowers@la-archdiocese.org, please do so again. We've had trouble with that email address.
