In their annual gathering June 16-18,
2021, the USCCB voted to continue work towards the draft of a document

Part-Time Bookkeeper Needed
Sr. Carol wanted to share an
opportunity with everyone for a part-time position as a bookkeeper for

We hope everyone has a blessed and
safe summer. We’ll try and keep everyone informed of important events
if they come up over the next few months, and be respectful of not
“cluttering” up your inboxes!
Be safe, see you soon.
