thanks voluns web

Father John Pahl, pastor of the Church of the Assumption in Manchester, decided it was time to say thank you. So he treated about 100 of the volunteers from the various ministries and organizations within the parish to a luncheon on Feb. 26. Father Pahl recognized the work done by the volunteers and thanked them. “I want you to look around the room to see how many people it takes to keep our parish running. Without volunteers like you the parish wouldn’t be able to function,” Father Pahl said.
