PARISH RECORDS

It has recently come to our attention that our parish records do not always reflect the most current information with regards to the children born into your family. When you have a child please update your family record by completing a CHANGE FORM located on the table to the right of the main entrance into the sanctuary.

 

FIRST COMMUNION

First communion will be celebrated here Saturday, May 8th during the 4:00 mass. Please keep each of these children in your prayers as they prepare for this holy and Blessed Sacrament.

 

CATHOLIC COMMUNICATION CAMPAIGN

Next weekend you will have the opportunity to participate in the collection for the Catholic Communication campaign. Proceeds support a wide variety of media projects that spread the Gospel message. Please use your pre-printed envelopes for your donation or note your contribution accordingly so funds can be funneled accurately.

BELLS of ST. MARY’S FUND DRIVE

Last weekend we kicked off our Bells of St. Mary’s Appeal.  In conjunction with the Bishops Annual Appeal we are raising money for historic preservation and to offset the cost of rising tuition. We are looking forward to putting new carpet inside the church and repairing the sidewalks in front the church. We have already reached our BAA goal due to the generosity of those that made a three year pledge.  However, to reach our parish goal of $150,000 we need everyone to participate.  Please consider giving $100/month for ten months.  Any and all amounts are welcomed!  Campaign cards and brochures are available in the back of church.  A letter will also be arriving at your homes this week.  You can mail in your pledge cards or put it in the collection basket.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.
