Toilets for Haiti. Region One is spearheading a campaign for each of the 19 churches to raise $1700 to build a new toilet system for the school attached to Notre Dame Cathedral. Currently there is one latrine for 300 people – and that one is decrepit. For $32,000 we can build that system which will reduce disease (cholera) and improve sanitation.  Throw your contributions in the toilet today and support this worthwhile project.


“Feasting with Jesus” continues March 14th at 6pm. This week is the Todah Feast.  Come understand Jesus in his own time.


Please consider donating to the Tools for the Sudan Project, a Region One project. Buy an agricultural or fishing tool from the shopping cart on the bulletin board or online. (churchsp.org/toolsforthesudan). We are up over the $3,000 mark – thank you!

The Prodigal Son Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1667-1670)

“Then the father said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and has come to life; he was lost and has been found’” -Luke 15:31-32
