In the Life of GICP

Greeting Cards for Stacy You can help lift Stacy Loudon's spirits while she continues her stay at Henry Ford Hospital downtown by sending her a humorous greeting card. Simply send the cards to Stacy, c/o Sue Quinn, 8093 Berkshire, Grosse Ile 48138.
Prayer Box for Stacy A prayer box has been prepared for Stacy Loudon; it is in the Narthex. If you would like to write a prayer for Stacy, her family, or whatever is on your heart, please place prayers in the red box and Sue will deliver them to her. This is a great way to "do something" when you feel there's nothing you can do.
