Also, please do not begin to use the new packet until January of 2023. Thank you!
FROM THE ALTAR SOCIETY To make the “This N’ That” sale such a huge success, we had volunteers distributing posters throughout the city, generous people donating items, volunteers setting up, handling check-outs, bagging, pleasing customers, boxing items that did not sell and offering their trucks (Mark and Rick) to haul items away. We made $3,079.61 which will be given to the parish for maintenance projects. Please consider joining the Altar Society. Our next event is the Cookie Stroll on December 10th. The Altar Society will meet on Thursday, November 3rd beginning with Mass at noon, followed by the Luncheon, Mitten Tree Party, and bingo in the parish hall.
