Do you have stuff in your garage or cellar that you’d like to get rid of? We can help. On Saturday, October 18 we are holding a flea market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Parish Center. Food will be served in the kitchen, and baked goods will be available to purchase. Rent a table for only $25 and whatever you make on your sale will be yours to keep. We are now taking table reservations. If you’d like to rent a table for $25, contact the rectory to reserve a space.
