Ushers Needed: We always could use a few more people to serve in the ministry of usher and especially at the Noon Mass on Sundays. An usher can be a man or woman, and should be at least high school age. If you wish to do this, please call the parish office or email me - email@example.com.
Novena: Our annual parish Novena to Our Lady of Victory continues through next Sunday, Oct. 7th. The schedule of events is in today’s bulletin. Please note that the Rosary Walk will begin in the church next Sunday, Oct. 7th, at 6:30pm.
Blessing of Animals: The traditional blessing of animals in honor of St. Francis of Assisi will be on his feast day, Thursday, Oct. 4th, following the 9:00am Mass. Please bring your pet(s) to the circle in front of the Church at that time.
OLV Day: Because the Feast of Our Lady of Victory (Our Lady of the Rosary) falls on Sunday this year, our parish school is celebrating it on Friday, Oct. 5th. There will be a special Mass at 9:00am in the Church, a brunch for senior citizens following Mass in the Gardiner Social Hall, and the annual Walkathon after lunch, starting in the parking lot around 12:30pm. Whether or not you have children or grandchildren in our school or preschool, please feel free to join in the fun.
Click, click, click: No, these aren’t crickets you will be hearing at Mass in October, but ushers counting the Mass attendance. This project is mandated by our Bishop, and so as his good and obedient servants, we will comply.
