PIEROGIES - ALL LENT LONG
Gosia’s pierogies will be available at the Fish Fry on March 16, as well as all during Lent. Just stop by Holy Name Rectory to pick up as many as you need. We will be selling potato/cheese and sweet cabbage. They are selling for $6.00 a dozen.
To the parishioner who wishes to remain anonymous, who donated a 10” radial arm saw to the cause of church improvement. At this time, it seems our tooling needs have been generously met.

MARCH HOAGIE SALE
Our next weekend sale is March 3& 4. You can order yours by calling Holy Name Rectory or pick them up before or after the weekend Masses or stop by Saturday morning from 9:30 am – 11:30 am.
- Volunteers: last month 31 volunteers showed up to help. We are considering expanding our sales so we hopefully would like to get some more so we can stay within our 3 hour time frame. This event is a lot of fun and you get to meet new people willing to help the parish. It is especially good for those people who work and can’t help out at weekday events.
- Sellers: we have also had an increase in those willing to take orders to work or put up a sign up sheet. Once your co-workers try the hoagies, they become regular customers. Where can you get a whole lunch for $5.00.
YOUR 2 FOR 1 CHALLENGE DONATIONS AT WORK
The issues with the physical plant and buildings seem like a never ending challenge. We have noticed that the marbleized walls behind the piano and next to the tabernacle and the wall next to the baptismal font are deteriorating and crumbling due to another water invasion. What they found was the flashing, gutters and chimney on the right side were deteriorated and allowing water to leach all the way down the wall and the chimney on the left side of the church was ready to fall and thus allowing for water infiltration. The hole in the ceiling will be part of this project. It is 2 massive repair projects going on at the same time.
- Work To Begin: The work is scheduled to begin within the next week. Your may have to move your regular seat due to the erecting of the scaffolding. I did receive an insurance check covering the work to be done minus the $1,000.00 deductible on each of the 2 jobs that totals $2,000.00 as a cost to the parish. Your continual 2-for-1 challenge dollar donations are being put to good use.
