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.
