CHILDREN’S LITURGY FOOD COLLECTION

Today, Palm Sunday, is the last day children from the Preschool and Children's Liturgy of the Word classes will be presenting items for the food pantry during the Offertory of the Mass. We thank all the families and teachers who donated food items during Lent for their generosity. The donations don't need to stop, however -- the barrels are always located in the church foyer to either side of the entrance. Please continue this corporal work of mercy and witness to your families.

BUNNY RAFFLE THIS WEEKEND

An Altar Society member has donated a bunny with 8 handmade outfits for a raffle just in time for Easter. Tickets are on sale this weekend with the winner being drawn after the 9:30am Mass on Sunday. $2 each or 3 for $5. Stick around to see if your ticket is the winner!!

EASTER FLOWERS

Each year at this time we offer the opportunity for you to contribute to the Easter Memorial flowers which are used for Holy Week and Easter. Envelopes are available in the foyer on the counters for donations for our Easter Memorial Garden. Please write your name and the person to be remembered on the front of the envelope and drop it in the collection basket or send it to the office.

STREET FAIR CONCERT & PARADE

Yes, it is time to begin planning for this summer’s concert and parade. A parade planning meeting will be announced soon to begin planning this year’s event. This is a wonderful family oriented event to share with our neighbors and others visiting the area for the street fair. Volunteers from previous years have said it is one of the most fun and enjoyable events they have worked. Last year we had the “Alphabeticians”, face painters, balloons, participated in the parade, & hot dog/polish sausage sales. Think about joining us as a volunteer this year and bring your ideas to add to the celebration.
