A Note from our Pastor…
Special thanks to all who made my birthday celebration such a happy, wonderful occasion. My birthday verse for the new year:
“The Father has a plan for us
Blessed by Spirit and the Son;
So I can’t wait to live my life
At the age of sixty-one!”
THANK YOU! to Kyle Mehlum of Culvers for his generous donation of Culver’s Custard and other treats for our recent Ice Cream Social. THANK YOU, too, to all who helped in any way with the event!
OUR SAVING PASTOR We are cleaning out the storage closet in the parish office and are using left-over bulletin covers from the past year. Enjoy the “golden oldies!”
SCHOOL SUPPLIES The social action committee of the parish will once again be conducting their annual program asking for donations of school supplies. Notebooks, backpacks, crayons, pencils, notebook paper, pens, etc. etc. There is a box in the gathering space of our church for you to place your donations. These will be given to Cathedral School, St. Vincent DePaul and any other facility that
provides help with families. If you know of a family who needs supplies please call the parish office (715-398-7174) and let us know so we are able to help. (This call would be confidential.) Thank you for your continuing generosity. If you have any questions or would like more information contact Marilee at 715-399-8252 or Janet at 715-394-4130.
