From the Pastor - October 22, 2017

Kudos to the workers from HASA who hosted the Auction:  it was a nice evening, the food was excellent (many good comments at the table where I was sitting; some even took leftovers home).  The Auction seemed very successful; eager to hear the results for this year.  Many new families too, to the evening!  At the last minute something crazy and wild took possession of me and I offered a dinner for 8 at the rectory, including wine with dinner.  We had two bidders vying, and so I just sold two at the end, each for $500.

Service to this Country

We would like to up-date our military plaque that’s located in the vestibule.  If you have served, are serving, or know of someone from this parish who has served ~ and your name is NOT on this plaque ~ please write down name, rank, and what branch of the military served and give the information to the parish secretary or place it in an envelope marked “Armed Forces” and put it in the Offertory basket at the next Mass you attend. 

Bishop’s Appeal

Our goal this year is $18,841.49. To date we have a total  of $11,330. pledged from 64 pledge card responses.   Please take time to fill out a card—even if you can’t contribute at this time —and place it in the Offertory basket at the next Mass you attend.  Cards are available on the table next to the elevator.  Thank you for your support!

If we don’t make our goal, the parish is still responsible for the goal amount.  Any donation is greatly appreciated!
