From the Pastor

Dear Parishioners

Dear Parishioners,

At the request of Parish Council, we are getting a late start on the Catholic Ministries Appeal due to the “Lift High the Cross” appeal. Thanks to all who have helped with the parking & A/C.

By the time you read this, you may have received your CMA pledge card by mail. If not, you may use the form in the pew. All gifts are important and appreciated. Our goal is the same as last year, $106,530.

Our bulletin deadline is at Noon Wednesday and our CMA Pioneer Donors List will appear in the bulletin next week.

Please note that there will not be a parish mailing for the CMA, only from the Diocese.

We will celebrate the annual Memorial Masses on the weekend of November 2/3.

Letters were sent out families who have had funerals in our parish in the last year as we prepare for the annual Memorial Masses.

During these four Masses, the Memorial Cards are removed from the Ambry and placed on the altar. Families can also have a candle lit if they wish.

Thanks to the two families who put our parish in obituaries as a suggested Memorial Donation in the past week. This helps us to do repairs on our buildings and property.

A huge “Thank You” to Karen Marsh, Julie Swan and Janine Nasca, who for the 2nd year now, have organized, our parish observance of Rosary Coast to Coast. Your generous offering of your time, talent and treasure is greatly appreciated. 

“Thank You” to Sr. Kathy O’Connell, who led us in the Rosary and Barb Giordano, who led us in song. The giving of your time and talent are also greatly appreciated.

May the Blessed Mother continue to watch over and protect each of you!

Many events are being held in the coming weeks involving our youth. Don’t miss the fun of the annual “Haunted Pasta” Dinner!

We have new Vocation Posters showing the eleven young men who are studying for the priesthood of our Diocese. Pray for vocations.

Sincerely, Father Gagnier
