Around the Parish – March 3, 2024

Written on .

A special thank you to everyone that contributed to the second collections and donations to Father Max and his Dominican confreres. Because of your continued generosity, we raised a total of $1,296.00. Thank you again for both your generosity and your participation in our parish mission.

It might seem impossible, but next week, Daylight Savings Time begins. Make sure you spring ahead next Sunday morning at 2am! Otherwise, you will be late to mass!

Spring is just around the corner, and therefore, Easter is as well! We are still in need of lottery tickets for the Easter Basket Raffle. If you are able to donate, please send in your unscratched tickets to the office as soon as possible.

As spring unfolds its vibrant colors, it’s the perfect season to embark on a refreshing cleaning journey! As you bid farewell to the remnants of winter and embrace a lighter atmosphere, consider contributing to the upcoming Bargains & Blooms Bazaar. We invite you to generously donate gently-used pre-loved items that you no longer need. Help us create a collection of treasures by offering items such as quality furniture, gently-used clothing, and other cherished belongings. Your generous contributions will not only declutter your space but also find new homes and bring joy to others. Let’s make this spring a time of sharing and rejuvenation

Get ready for a Shamrockin’ Celebration! In just about a week and a half, our eagerly awaited Saint Patrick’s Day Bingo and Bake Sale will unfold, and we’re counting on your enthusiasm to make it a spectacular event once again! Last year’s turnout and participation were amazing, with everyone raving about the fantastic time they had. Let’s keep the tradition alive and make this year’s celebration even more memorable! We are reaching out to the heart of our community – YOU! Volunteers are needed to ensure the success of this joyful gathering. Your help can make a significant difference in creating an atmosphere filled with laughter and camaraderie. And calling all master bakers! Our parish is home to the BEST bakers, and we know you’re eager to showcase your talents! We are still in need of delicious baked goods to sweeten the festivities. Whether it’s your famous Irish soda bread or a delightful green-themed treat, we invite you to contribute and share the joy of your culinary creations. Let’s join hands and create lasting memories at our Saint Patrick’s Day Bingo and Bake Sale. Your support and participation will undoubtedly make this event a shining success! See you there, and may the luck of the Irish be with us all!

Here are a few thoughts for the week ahead:

A wasted day is one where we only thought about how someone else could change; a good day is one when we become part of the solution. Faith is our greatest gift; sharing it with others is our greatest responsibility.

Pax et Bonum, Fr. Andy
