- Appreciation Reception for Linda VanBuren
Parishioners have been very fortunate to have Linda coordinate the parish nurse program at Risen Christ from its earliest days. For the last 13 years she has worked tirelessly in behalf of parishioners who are ill, homebound, or who face the funeral and grief that attend the death of a family member. Although she will continue to attend to those with whom she is currently engaged, Linda will now have the time she wishes to be with her family and the free time to be at home. There will be a reception to thank Linda Sunday, Aug. 24 following the 10:30 Mass.
- Seminarians of the Diocese of Boise
