Around the Parish – November 12, 2023

Written on .

This weekend, we give thanks to God for all of our veterans. Their yes to serve country brings about our freedoms and liberties that we hold dear. As always, thank you to all who serve, and may God bless you and keep you safe.

A reminder that poinsettia order forms are due by Sunday, November 19. Thank you for making our church beautiful!

A massive thank you goes out to everyone who made donations for our Thanksgiving distributions from the Sharing Shed. Starting this weekend, we are asking for help to prepare for the Christmas distribution. Your continued generosity helps many families in our area both on a bi-weekly basis with necessities, as well as at this time of year when it becomes even more difficult to prepare for two major holidays back to back. Any help that you might be able to provide for our friends in need is greatly appreciated.

The Nursing Home Gift Tree is in our church for our local seniors. If you are able to help spread some Christmas Cheer, we ask that you take a tag from the tree, purchase the gift listed, and return the gift in a gift bag with the tag to church by Sunday, December 3.

#iGiveCatholic this year will be on Tuesday, November 28. A project that we are looking to do is update and upgrade the chairs and tables in our parish conference room. Each new chair costs $50, and we are looking into purchasing at least 50 chairs. Any help you might be able to give to this project would be greatly appreciated. All proceeds from this fundraiser stay completely in our parish. More information can be found in this weekend’s bulletin as well as on our website at:

Here’s a couple of thoughts for your week: Nothing is impossible; the word itself says, ‘I’m possible! An ounce of behavior is worth a pound of words. You often meet your fate on the road you take to avoid it.
