Help needed

Garden Helpers Needed – In preparation for our diocesan convention, we need to do some garden clean up in the beds at the entrance to the cathedral. Please gather up your gloves, rakes and clippers/pruning shears and join me on Monday, Oct. 20th at 10:00 a.m. Work as long as you wish but we will be finished by 3:00 at the latest. Contact Lisa Waldon at lisawaldon@hotmail.com or by phone, 801-679-3393 if you are coming and if you have any questions.

Collecting Information – We would like to recognize your birthdays and anniversaries.  Laura Reilly will be heading up this project.  Please help us update our records by submitting your information to her by email:

LReilly@stmarkscathedral-ut.org, phone 801-322-3400, or stop by the office.

Coffee hour – A gentle reminder, please help our staff and volunteers by bringing your own dishes to the pass through window in the kitchen after you have used them.  Thank you!

Picture Directory Update – we are in the planning process with the Vestry for a new parish directory with photographs.  We will be looking for volunteers who would be interested in publicizing this to the parish and for scheduling photographs and hosting photograph events at the parish.  Look forward to further updates as we receive information on companies and pricing.

Recycling – Thank you for all the good stewards who are using our blue, marked recycle bins.  However, we are finding aluminum cans and plastic bottles in the garbage.  They are easy to recycle, just EMPTY them.  Also, please, no “crinkly,” firm plastic food wrappers (candy bars, granola bars, etc.) in the recycle bins; only “soft” plastic (plastic bags, bread wrappers) and items marked as recyclable or with the recycle symbol.

Cards to Share?  Cards are sent to parishioners for a variety of reasons, such as birthday, get well, thinking of you, holidays.  If you have an abundance of greetings cards, consider bringing some in for us to use to keep people connected to our community even when they are not able to be with us.

Hildegarde’s Pantry Food of the Month – chili beans, spaghettio’s, ravioli, beef stew (all in cans) and cat food.  Convenient containers for donations are at each entrance of the Cathedral Center.  We also still need egg cartons recyclable bags and canvas bags.  Thank you for helping us reduce, reuse, recycle.  In September we served 2791 people: 648 children; 178 Seniors (55+), 213 working families (at least one person employed).  We received over 13866.91bs. of food from the Utah food bank and also received private and parishioner donations.
