+ CPR/AED and Basic First Aid Certification Classes: The Emergency Management Committee is once again sponsoring both cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)/ automatic external defibrillator (AED) certification training and Basic First Aid certification training to be conducted by the Vestal Volunteer Emergency Squad. CPR/AED training will be held on Saturday, Oct. 16, and Basic First Aid training will be held on Saturday, Oct. 30. Both sessions will be held in Msgr. Giblin Social Hall from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Please note that these sessions will cover both the initial certification and recertification. The cost of the training is $35 per session. Those interested in attending either of the training sessions must sign up in the vestibule by no later than October 11 for the CPR/AED training and by October 25 for the First Aid training. Class size is limited, and COVID19 protocols will be maintained.
+ Reminder for this weekend’s Masses: Amazing Graces will be collecting free-will offerings for the people of Haiti as the nation recovers from a devastating earthquake. This drive will last through September. Sr. Brigid O’Mahony runs a shelter in Haiti that ministers to those who are truly in need. Sr. Brigid will make sure that the funds get to those who need it most. Put your offering in an envelope and drop in the weekend collection or mail it/drop it off at the parish office.
