SPECIAL COLLECTION-APRIL 17-18
The diocese of Columbus has established the 2nd Sunday after Easter as a special collection weekend for Aid to the Church in Central and Eastern Europe. Please use your preprinted collection envelopes for your contribution or mark your donation accordingly so funds can be applied correctly.
New lights were installed in the ceiling over the altar. The old lights were out dated, making it difficult and very expensive to buy replacement bulbs. More than $100 per bulb!!! In addition, new lights were installed on the back of the cross with the hope of adding more lighting to the back rotunda. These lights still need some more adjusting, but there is dramatic improvement. Thank you for your Bells of St. Mary’s contributions which are allowing these projects to be completed. More to come, and soon…
