OFFICE COPIER USAGE: Please be aware that the office copier is a leased machine and our monthly bills are determined by its usage. Our contract with the leasing company states that the church must pay for every copy made by the machine. Persons desirous of making personal copies, or copies for groups and organizations that are not a direct part of the congregation, would need to seek other means of having those copies made.
Parish groups and organizations are responsible for generating and printing their own programs, flyers and tickets. Your kind co-operation is most appreciated.
