We are pleased to announce that we have reopened the church for in-person, limited seating. Please make sure to read the guidelines presented here before coming to the church. Your cooperation is crucial for the success of this reopening. Thank you for your understanding.
Please keep our country and our community in your prayers and be safe and considerate to each other.
May God bless you all.
This has been an unusual time in our lives. Some of us have actually had time to clean out those attics and storage spaces. With that in mind, please consider donating NEW items to the Silent Auction events. We will help you recycle those unused Christmas gifts and give them new life. Please, please, we can only use NEW ITEMS or ANTIQUE items.
The SILENT AUCTION committee welcomes new items of just about any category. There is almost always a theme basket in the works that it will fit into. The basket committee supplies items for the bingos, and other events throughout the year including the Fall Festival. If you have items you would like to donate, please contact Carolyn Marker at 612-270-0451 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know that you have left items.
YOU CAN DROP OFF AT CHURCH ONCE IT IS OPEN AGAIN OR CONTACT CAROLYN FOR PICK UP.
As a result of Covid-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the fall festival this year. We feel that the closeness of working together both in prep and the day of the festival would be too risky for our parishioners and for the public. Instead of running the festival as we always have in the past, it has been decided that we, members of the council and some volunteers, would start doing take-out only dinners. These dinners would start the same weekend that the festival would have taken place so as not to lose our momentum. At this time, the details for these dinners are in the planning stage. There will be a meeting sometime at the end of July or early August to discuss how we can safely put these dinners together. Thank you all for your cooperation. Our full festival will be back next year!
Although our full fall festival will not occur this year, Carolyn has graciously offered to do a mail-in raffle, with the winners announced in early September. The council is grateful to Carolyn for doing this and is 100% behind the effort. Please watch your mail in the next few weeks for a packet of raffle tickets. This year, there will be two cash prizes, only.
Due to the current situation, classes are held on-line Wednesdays at 6:30 pm. Parents are invited to encourage and help their children participate in these classes from home. First Communion will be rescheduled this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Gary will be contacting families impacted by this situation.
