Don and Earleen Richeson send their heartfelt thanks for the prayers offered on behalf of their son, Rob. The hospital hopes to move Rob from ICU today to a private room, and believe he should go home either Sunday or Monday. Earleen says, "Praise our Lord for answer to prayers."
We have been asked to pray for Nick Burns, a 29 year old man in our local community, who is now under the care of Hosparus. Nick and his family have been featured in the local newspaper and I believe he attended school here in the county. Please pray that God will strengthen them and give them peace.
Catholic Relief Services' Rice Bowl collection will be taken up at Mass tonight - there is an envelope in the boxed stewardship set, or you can use the Rice Bowl itself. On Friday, the collection will go to Food for the Poor, and there is an envelope marked "Good Friday." On Easter Sunday, there are two envelopes - one for the annual collection for the Catholic Education Foundation and the other is theSunday offering envelope for the Parish. Please be sure you use the correct envelope for your contributions. You may also place your contributions in envelopes marked with your intentions. All Saints has been the recipient of grants for faith formation from the Catholic Education Foundation, whose purpose is to support the teaching ministry of the Church. Please be as generous as you are able in supporting these causes.
A reminder that the Parish Office will be closed tomorrow, Good Friday.
