We hope that you will help support the parish youth who will be participating in the Cardboard Charity Campout next weekend by donating blankets, flashlights and personal hygiene items they will be using to simulate being homeless. Toothpaste and toothbrushes are being donated, but travel-size toiletries such as soap, deodorant, shampoo, sunscreen, along with small bottles of water and granola bars would be welcome. Donations can be left in the box outside the Parish Offices - contact Becky Culver if you have any questions or for additional information.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered this Saturday from 3-3:30, with Fr. Jack Caldwell as the celebrant.
Please complete and return your 2017 Stewardship Form - it can be mailed, placed in the collection basket or dropped in the Mail Slot outside the Parish Offices, in the envelope addressed to Fr. Dale marked "Confidential." We thank those of you who have already responded.
The Knights of Columbus invite you to their Fish Dinner this evening from 5-7:00 PM, and to their monthly Chicken Dinner on Sunday from Noon until 2:00PM. Your support is appreciated - proceeds help fund their charitable work.
Parishioner Jan Kehne spoke with Bryce Nall last Friday. He was in good spirits and will be in rehab another 2-4 weeks. Bryce said he has made great progress with his therapy and does have some minor sensation in his legs. The doctors will not say if this will continue to improve and that only time will tell. He asked that we continue to pray for him.
And on the Feast of St. Patrick: May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
