BELLS of ST.
Thanks to the generosity of parishioners we have met our goal of $48,000 for the 2009-10 BAA campaign. Our goal for St. Mary’s is $150,000 a year over a three (3) year period. 100% of the monies collected over our BAA goal stay here at St. Mary. These monies will be used for historic preservation of our buildings and tuition assistance for those in need to attend our school. 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.
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 Tues., July 14, through Sat, 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 email@example.com .

CAN YOU HELP?
We have a very faithful group of bingo volunteers who give a few hours each month to help at that important parish fundraiser. But we need more folks to help. Can you come on one Sunday evening each month to assist for a couple of hours? Call Father Thomas at 445-9668. The more folks we have, the less work for all.
