CORPUS CHRISTI OPPORTUNITIES
On June 14, Corpus Christi and St. Ladislas parishes will have a joint celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi. There will be Mass at Corpus Christi at 10:00 a.m., followed by a procession around the church and a pancake breakfast, all at Corpus Christi. Here at St. Mary’s, there will be exposition and benediction from 3:30 to 4:30 with a procession around the block or around the church, followed by some wine, cheese and snacks. Join us at one or both celebrations.
MARK your CALENDARS
Are you interested in learning about the Catholic faith? Are you looking into joining the Church? Are you a Catholic who has been away for a while? Then the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for you. It begins with a cook-out on August 19th, at 6:30 p.m. on the back patio of Father’s house (to the right of the Church when facing it from 3rd street). You can bring any support that you need. RCIA sessions will be held each Wednesday starting at 7 p.m. Attending the classes does not obligate you to entering the Church at Easter. We look forward to seeing you in August!

WOMEN’S RESPITE PROGRAM….Can you volunteer some of your time? Volunteers are needed to help set-up, transport, serve meals, bake cookies, or clean-up for the Women’s Respite Program to be held at the St. Theresa’s Shrine from Tuesday, July 14, through Saturday, July 18. Any time that you can give throughout the day or evening is needed. The Women’s Respite Program is sponsored through the St. Stephen’s Community Center. The purpose of the program is to invite women to come together in a safe place for a mini-vacation. Through the hospitality and efforts of volunteers, each woman can have time to herself or with others and experience creativity and spirituality that they cannot always enjoy in their everyday lives. If you want to help or need more information, please contact Debbie Pecinovsky at 868-8208 or at firstname.lastname@example.org .

BELLS of ST.
Thanks to the generosity of parishioners we have pledged $95, 480.00 for 2009-2010 campaign. 100% of the monies collected over our BAA goal of $48,000 stays right here at St. Mary’s! Our goal for St. Mary’s is $150,000 a year over a three (3) year period. These monies will be used for historic preservation of our buildings and tuition assistance for those in need to attend our school. Some possible visible building repairs needed are: Specht Center windows, carpet in the sanctuary of the church, sidewalks in front of church and school, etc. If you have not pledged or given to this important campaign please prayerfully consider doing so. Campaign cards and brochures are in the rear of the church near the picture of Pope Benedict. If you already pledged, nothing further is required. We appreciate your generosity!
Are you looking to get involved and would like to do so with your spouse? Engaged preparation might be for you. We are in need of volunteers to serve in the marriage ministry here at St. Mary’s. For more information, come to an informational meeting and cookout on July 11th at 5:30 p.m. hosted by Deacon Roger and Mary Kelly Minner. Please RSVP to Jason Shanks at email@example.com or by phone at 445-9668. Cookout location and other information will be provided upon receipt of your RSVP.
Anyone that would like to volunteer to serve coffee and doughnuts between the 9:00 and 11:30 masses is asked to call Marge Smigelski at 614-871-8142. Many of us take advantage of this time to socialize either after or before mass and we are in need of new volunteers. Please consider devoting one (1) Sunday every couple months to this special ministry.
