Labor Day Sunday, September 4, 2011 #

Work is a huge part of our lives!  Whether we work at a paying job, work at home, or both, the work we do and the way we do it expresses our calling as children of God.  On Labor Day Sunday, bring a symbol of your work to lay at the altar as we offer our work to God for blessing!
