Dear Ladies and Friends of TASTE,



  • THIS WEEK'S DISCUSSION — We will reflect on Fr. John Barry's talk entitled "Know St. Joseph as Your Spiritual Father." The audio and video of his talk and Reflection Questions are all included HEREAt the same location, you will find two songs he played, his daily meditations / novena to St. Joseph, Pope Francis' Prayer to St. Joseph, and the St. Joseph Rosary.
  • TASTE SPEAKER ON EWTN  Mark your calendar!  Kristen Fisher (Ablaze Family Ministries' Executive Director of Content) will be appearing on EWTN on Wednesday, Oct 13th at 6:00 or 9:00 PM. Kristen has given talks at TASTE the last two years and will be giving another one in February.  How exciting to see one of our local speakers getting National/Worldwide attention!
  • GIVE AWAYS — TASTE has a number of “left over” paperbacks, and they must be cleared out of the chapel in the next few weeks. We are giving them away (or you can leave a free will offering in the basket). Please consider taking books for yourselves and/or to give as gifts. Maybe you know of a ministry or high school that might appreciate receiving them.


  • LOGISTICS — For a reminder of any information associated with zoom small group, parking, masks, public health, babysitting, or registration, please view this LINK.
  • PRAYER REQUESTS —  Several of our TASTE sisters need our prayers.  Please pray for: All our TASTE sisters, Kate Christianson, Patty Aghdam, Kay Robinson (Jennifer's D's mom), Susan Conroy, our spiritual director Fr.
