FUNDRAISING EVENTS

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS COUNCIL 1395 FOOD DRIVE - This year the Knights of Columbus will not be collecting canned or dry goods as we have done in past years.  Instead, we will only be accepting monetary donations.  The proceeds will be donated to Stafford's SafeNet in December.  Marked envelopes are in the pews and can be dropped into any collection basket during mass through early December.  The Knights will be matching all the donations of the parish up to $750 in total so this is a chance to double your contribution.  The Knights thank you in advance for any donation you can make.

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS MEATLOAF DINNER - The Knights will be holding a meatloaf dinner on Saturday, January 19, following the 4:00 p.m. Mass.  More information will be coming.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

 


 

ADVENT WREATH AND CANDLES - If anyone is in need of Advent candles and/or wreaths for this Advent Season, they are available at the church office.  You can purchase a set of 12" three purple and one pink candle for $5 per set.  The wreaths are brass and are 6" in diameter.  They fit very nicely on the dinner table!  The wreaths are $5 a piece.  Stop by and take a look!!

GIVING TREE - We will have the Giving Tree again this Advent to provide support for girls and women who are pregnant, and who have decided to keep their babies or put them up for adoption rather than to abort their babies.  Your response in the past years was indeed great, and overwhelming.  We support the Windham Birthright Center in Willimantic, in the Diocese of Norwich.  Their needs are great and required throughout the year. Any gift is deeply appreciated, including monetary donations, which enable Birthright to purchase urgently needed items.  Please select a paper decoration from the tree which gives a needed item.  SERIOUS NEED include diapers (all sizes), baby powder and ointment and baby wipes.  See December 2 bulletin above for a complete list of needs.  PLEASE NOTE:  The needs are ongoing throughout the year,  Ay donation, including monetary, are gratefully accepted at all times.

ALTAR SERVERS -  We are looking for young people, grade 3 or above and who have made their First Communion to volunteer to perform this very important ministry.  Training will be offered at a number of different times.  Please call the Parish Office at 860-684-2705 to sign up your child and select a day of training.  Thank you!

CHILDREN'S LITURGY PROGRAM - Each Sunday we will be offering a Children's Liturgy program for children ages 3-5.  During Mass, children will be invited to the Sacristy where they will have a lesson and activities based on the day's scripture.  Please contact the parish office at 860-684-2705 if you are interested in having your child participate so that we can order materials.

BIBLE STUDY - Come join us as we start a New Bible Study.  Our Bible Study is starting Thursday, October 16, at 6:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall.  We will be studying the Book of Luke.  Everyone is welcome!
