This schedule will be in effect until September 11.  Make sure you pay attention.

HOMEMADE HOAGIE SALE

We will be having our monthly homemade hoagie sale, this weekend, May 21/22 after all the Masses on the weekend and Saturday morning in the [HN] hall from 9:30 – 11:30 am.  They are $5.00 each.

CHRISTIAN MOTHERS NEWS

The Christian Mothers will meet on Tuesday, May 24th, beginning with the rosary at 11:45 am followed by the crowning of the Blessed Mother in the Holy Name Hall.  Meeting will follow with a light dessert.  Dues will be collected and members are asked to bring a non-perishable item for the Intersection.

PARISH SHARE PROGRAM - CREATIVE GIVING

Over the past several months several people have come forward with suggestions on how to meet our yearly “Parish Share Assessment.”  One viable suggestion was to place in our envelope packets one entitled, “Extra Parish Share donation.”  Those suggesting and the parish finance council felt that instead of always giving to the second collections outside the parish, that some people might want to keep their contributions here for the benefit of the parish. The finance council concurred with the suggestion.  Therefore, for anyone who wishes to participate in this way, the envelope will appear in the next month’s mailing.  This contribution will help meet our goal and lower our assessment next year.


SUMMER FLEA MARKET NEWS

In a few short weeks, preparations for our “Indoor/Outdoor Summer Flea Market” will be underway.  It will be held Friday, Saturday & Monday, July 8, 9 & 11.    We will begin accepting your donations on Tuesday, June 7.   The [HN] hall will be open from 9 – 12 noon each weekday and from 9 am – 11 am, Saturdays and Sundays.  It is time to start gathering up your households goods to be sold.   We accept anything except tires, plants, clothes and computer equipment.

JOINT PARISH GOLF OUTING NEWS

  • RAFFLE:   All Cash Raffle:  This year, we are adding a “Bonus Prize” to the raffle.  Each family has been mailed (4) tickets, which you are being asked to sell or purchase.  Each ticket has two possible winning numbers on the PA  Lottery, June 20, 2011, four digit number.  The winning number gets $1,000.00 cash, the winning number above and below gets $250.00 each.  The Bonus Prize is that if any of those (3) winning numbers hit again on July 4, 2011, you get a prize of $10,000.00.

  • GOLF OUTING – JUNE 20, 2011: We hope that everyone will participate in some way to make our “Ed Capristo Memorial Joint Parish Golf Outing and Raffle” a huge success.   There are flyers around all the churches detailing the many ways you can participate.  This is a very beneficial fundraiser for both of our parishes and everyone’s participation is necessary and vital as we strive to keep our parishes alive and going.

PASTOR'S WISH LIST

If anyone would like to donate a “Weber Grill” for the Summer Extravaganza raffle at the Golf Outing, please call Fr. Dennis.   This item would be a great additional item to raffle for what we have planned for those attending.

NEWS FROM OUR ADOPTED TROOPS

Hi.  I am Leo Rios.  I am 21 years old, now SPC.  I just got promoted. I want to thank  you, Patricia and Jeanne for the care package.  It is great to know that people still care about us and pray for us.  I don’t have internet but I can still write and mail is free.  We have food, but not candy or snacks, so I appreciate the candy a lot, because I love it.  Thank you for your support.....Leo Rios

PROTECTING GOD'S CHILDREN UPDATES

We would like to remind everyone that all ministers and volunteers should be filling out their paperwork for clearances.  If you haven’t done them yet, you can pick up the paperwork at either church rectory.  The next 2 hour workshop for those who haven’t attended, will be here on Sunday, August 28.
