It’s that time of year again! Our high school youth ministry program is preparing for our winter mission trip to Cranks Creek, KY. If you are able to donate to this worthy cause we will be taking up a collection at all the masses Thanksgiving weekend (November 28th and 29th). If you will be out of town but would like to donate please feel free to send a check to the Parish Office with “Cranks Creek” in the memo line. We thank you for your continued support and prayers!
Throughout the year, the youth group engages in programs, retreats, camps, service opportunities, and conferences that provide the opportunity to share fellowship, worship together, and be enriched by hearing from a variety of speakers. The high school group meets to address topics ranging from scripture and prayer, to current issues, to putting faith into action and men’s and women’s formation. The middle school group addresses similar topics of faith formation and completes work for an ongoing service project. For more information, please feel free to contact Kristin Collura at 488-6149 or email@example.com.
You can purchase flowers in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone. Simply call the parish office to request flowers for a particular weekend. There can be two arrangements per weekend. A parishioner who is a florist will provide and deliver the flowers on Saturday afternoon. Please make your request at least two weeks in advance so that we can announce in the bulletin the name of the donor as well as the name of the person being remembered. Requests for a particular date are honored on a first come-first served basis. However, it is the donation that guarantees a requested date and bulletin announcement. Flowers cost $50 per arrangement.
Did you know that we collect non-perishable food for the poor on the third weekend of every month? Place donations by the baskets near the three entrances. Our St. Vincent de Paul Society delivers the food to a local food pantry. Thank you for remembering that hunger is a year-round problem.
Please do not assume you are registered just because you attend Mass here. If you have not called the rectory office, or stopped in, and are not receiving envelopes (unless you chose EFT on your Stewardship Card) we do not have a record of you. Without a record we will be unable to help you when you want to get married or have a child baptized, are ill or in the hospital, or if you are asked to act as a Sponsor or be a Godparent. To be a Sponsor or Godparent, you must have a note from us stating that you are a practicing Catholic, which we cannot issue without a record of your membership. Call the rectory, 488-6149 to register.
Please remember that all items for the pamphlet racks need to have approval from the rectory office before being posted. We appreciate your cooperation.
