The Bishop’s Annual Appeal will take place in May.
There will be an informational BAA meeting held in the school gymnasium following each of the weekend masses on May 2nd and 3rd. 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.
Virtually meet new people, learn about events, chat with some new friends! Join today and tell all of your friends to join as well! Share your own ideas, get some questions answered; help plan fun outings. The possibilities are endless!
Are you interested in finding some new people to do things with this summer? Want to learn about your faith? Go hiking or canoeing with a group of people? Enjoy Shakespeare in the park or the gallery hop? Learn the rosary or connect for a bible study? Looking for some service opportunities? Want to share some info you have found? Join the group and find some great new people who share your faith and interests, and want to do some of the same things you do! We hope you join today!
About one dozen of our young parishioners will celebrate First Holy Communion next Saturday, May 9, at the 4:00 Mass. May God bless them and their families. We welcome them to the table of the Lord.
