NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

PLAN  AHEAD

 

On October 13, 14 and 15, St. Mary’s will enjoy an evening parish retreat, also known as a Parish Mission. Father John Collins of the Paulist Fathers will speak each evening on the theme of events in our lives in which we experience God. Father Thomas says Father Collins is the best mission preacher he has ever heard, and he asks that all organizations, committees and clubs clear those dates so that their members are able to come to the mission talks.

 

JULY PLANNING SESSIONS

 

On July 13, 20 and 27, at 10:00 a.m. all interested parishioners are invited to participate in a parish self study authored by the diocese. We will take the results of our study to a meeting with our fellow deanery parishes (St. Mary Groveport, St. Ladislas, Corpus Christi) to propose ideas to the diocese about how these parishes can best serve the people of our area.

 

MEMORIAL DAY MASS AND MAY CROWNING

 

The 12:00 Mass on May 26th will honor those our nation remembers on Memorial Day. After the Mass, a May Crowning service will be led by Father Thomas.

 

 

CORPUS CHRISTI SUNDAY

At 12:30 on May 25th, there will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament until 3:00.  Exposition will close at 3:00 with Benediction.  There are three First Masses of the newly ordained priests on that day.  Please remember the new priests in your prayers, and pray for all the travelers coming and going to their celebrations.  

 

ST. MARY SCHOOL THANK YOU

Thank you to all parishioners who are regularly recycling their cans and papers here. Each month we typically recycle over 8 TONS of paper!! Abitibi Recycling sends us on average a monthly check of $100.00 for that paper. In early May, we received an additional $400.00 because our school was tops in a recent competition to increase recycling. In March alone, we recycled 240 pounds of cans and received a check for $120.00 from Rumpke. Thank you for helping provide extra revenue for our school while taking care of God’s planet.
