EXPRESSIONS OF DISCIPLESHIP – 2019/20 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL
Thank you for filling out a Catholic Services Appeal Envelope. For those who did not fill one out, please do so before you leave church today. No gift is too small and our parish is trying to reach 100% participation. By making a gift today you save a volunteer having to call. There are many challenges that face us today. The shortage of priests is one such challenge. The responsibility our parish has to help provide diocesan services and ministries such as support for vocations and education of seminarians is an answer to the challenge.
ST. FRANCIS CHOIR leads us in song at the 10:30 AM Mass each Sunday. Rehearsals are held at 10:00 AM just prior to Mass. Please consider serving your parish family in this very important facet to our parish life.
POTATO BAKE & CHILI FEED is this Saturday, September 28th following 4:00 Mass. Enjoy homemade chili and baked potatoes with all the toppings. There is no charge. Thank you to all who volunteered to cook, serve and clean up! We appreciate your help with this event!

NEW COLLECTION BAGS The Diocese of Superior is requiring all parishes to now use a new type of collection bag at Mass.

This additional safety measure will add a bit more time to the collection process. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
