Nota bene: this is not a prerequisite to creating a group (don't want to get stuck in parish bureaucracy), but once you have done so, it is good to send an email to your pastor and parish administrator explaining the group to them and asking for announcements, bulletin placements, etc. Please reach us at [email protected] with any questions or advice!
