It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Mr. Cleveland Mineyard who worshipped at St. Raymond for many years with his wife and daughters.  He was a fixture in the front, sitting with great dignity in his wheelchair.  His funeral is on Friday, March 27th at 10am at St Athanasius Church where the family worshipped for many years.  In addition we learned today of the death of Ms. Shirley Bright who worshipped with us for many years.  She was usually in the back pew on the right with her trademark head wrap.  Her funeral arrangements are not yet complete.  May they rest in peace with the Lord who they loved so dearly!

Enter this holy week with a heart open to receiving the love revealed on this Cross…
