LADIE’S…WHY NOT MAKE A NEW YEAR RESOLUTION TO JOIN – THE LADIES ALTAR SOCIETY IN 2010!!! Did you know that being a member of the parish you are already a member of the Altar Society? You are. The rest is up to you. All you have to do is to become active. Join us on the 1st Wednesday of the month (March thru December) for our meeting at 7:00pm. Help plan events to raise money for many things needed at the parish. Meet your friends from the pews and strengthen friendships. Volunteer to work the rummage sales and craft show. Come listen to various speakers on subjects related to our lives. Socialize, have fun, lend your talents and time to serve your parish in a whole new adventure. Mark your calendar for March 3, 2010. We hope to see you there. Make this a resolution you can keep!
LADIES! LADIES!! LADIES!!! Ever wonder about the gifts you see on the table in the Gathering Space? Well, it's the Secret Pal program through the Altar Society. Forms are available on the table in the Gathering Space; just fill out both forms (exactly the same), return them this weekend (just put them in the collection basket), and you are on your way to a year of fun! You have a Secret Pal to help you celebrate the festivities of 2010 through small gifts and cards. Knowing you have someone thinking of you can be uplifting and supportive, and that you are helping someone else, and besides that, it's HOLY FUN!!! For more information or questions, please contact Rita O'Toole 513/734-7391.
CAN YOU HELP? We are looking ahead and planning for the Altar Society Craft Show in November (November 12 & 13). We are in need of .50 grab-bag gifts for the 50cent table. Please start saving those little trinkets and bring them to St. Mary’s in a bag marked “Craft Show”. If you can help out and would like to volunteer please contact Susan McKinnon at 484-9863. Confirmation candidates….need service hours? Mark your calendar for September 19th to help with the wrapping of the .50 gifts at the Fr. Louis Center after the 10:30am Mass.
KROGER CARD – FUND RAISER: If you are interested in supporting the parish by shopping at Kroger and need a Kroger Card - contact Karen Moermond email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 324-7814. So far our Kroger Cards have generated $3,194.47 (2007-$1,821.39; 2008-$667.40; 2009-$499.68 and so far this year in 2010-$206.00 thru May). Every little bit helps, and you can help by using this special Kroger Gift Card when shopping for your groceries. It doesn’t cost anymore and you help with the building fund cost without spending or giving extra from your own pocket. As you can see…it adds up! Thank you
