COMING UP SOON

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal will take place in May. We are ahead of the appeal here because we ran a three year version of the appeal last year.  We will be asking those who have not made a three year pledge to the BAA to make a one or two year pledge.  The good news is that our three year pledges have already got us past our BAA goal for this year.  So, new pledge money will all stay right here at St. Mary’s for the ongoing care of our historic buildings and for scholarships to our grade school based on financial need.  The diocese will soon mail a description of this year’s appeal to all our households.

 

SENIORS IN HIGH SCHOOL

Please plan to come to the 11:30 Mass on May 17th.  We would like to honor you at that Mass and have you introduce yourself to the parishioners at that time. You and your family are welcome at a light lunch after the Mass. We just need to hear from you so that we can get an accurate count for the lunch.  Are you coming?  How many family members will be with you at lunch?  Call us at 445-9668.

 

FIRST FRIDAY OF MAY

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on the First Friday of May will take place from 12:30 to 3:30 at SAINT LEO.  Exposition closes with Benediction. This takes the place of exposition here at St. Mary that day.

 

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED

Bingo Coordinator, Dick Hilsheimer is having shoulder surgery on his injured rotator cup.  Because of this, his mobility in setting up bingo on Sundays is limited.  We are in urgent need of someone to help Dick on Sunday afternoons set up for bingo.  He will still be there, but needs someone who can be his arms in getting bingo set up while his shoulder heals. Once set up is complete you are free to leave.  If you are available to do this please call Jason Shanks in the parish office at 445-9668.  Please do not assume that someone else will step up. Bingo revenue has really picked up over the last year and we need to keep this important fundraiser going.  Your help is needed and appreciated!  There is NO smoking in the gym, so you will not have that to worry about.

 

STUDY COMMITTEE NEEDED

Father Thomas would like to hear from anyone interested in studying whether we can form a Cub Scout group here.  We have some statistics to help guide us in determining whether or not this is a workable idea. 

 

 

 

ST MARY HOME & SCHOOL ASSOCIATION FLOWER SALE…. our annual sale is now underway.  Please look for order forms in the back of church, or stop by the school office.  Help St. Mary School and make the world more beautiful at the same time by ordering your flowers and veggies from us!  Flowers delivered to St Mary on May 8th; all flower orders due by May 1st.
