This past Sunday’s picnic was another one of those wonderful moments of God’s goodness and grace. I wish to thank the Parish Life committee for all their hard work putting on the picnic. A thank you to the CYO members for running the games for the children. It is so good to be together again as the parish family. I hope all of you had a great time at the picnic. Thank you once again to the Parish Life committee and CYO.

I am very pleased to announce that this year’s car for Oktoberfest is a Green BMW Z-3 convertible. I must say that this is the neatest car that we have ever had and I hope that one of you wins the car. This car is such a magnificent car that I am almost afraid to drive it. We searched the entire United States to find this car so I hope that you will help us set a record for selling chances on this car. I don’t know if we will ever find another car as neat as this one again.
We will have sign up for working Oktoberfest on the last weekend of August and the first two weekends of September. Oktoberfest is one of the great celebrations of our parish. We will begin selling chances on the car next weekend. The car is a BMW, Z-3, convertible. This is one of the neatest cars that we have ever had and it is the first time that we have had a BMW.
This is just a reminder that we have a prayer board in the front of the church. If you have a need or someone you wish to be prayed for please put a note on the board so that our parish community can pray for your intention.
