Welcome to Our Lady of the Snows Parish
Dear Fellow Parishioners:
Today, Jan. 25, is the beginning of Catholic Schools Week! Obviously, most of the activities take place during the week at school, but we like to kick it off each year with a grand celebration at our 10:30 Mass! We are very fortunate here at OLS that the parish is so supportive of the school and all of the great things that happen there throughout the year!
After Mass today, the 7th and 8th graders are hosting a Bake Sale. The profits will help to lower the cost of their trip to Springfield. Please support them!
Enrollment is now open for next year. There is an Open House in school today until 2:00PM. Stop by, meet the teachers, take a tour, and then...sign up your children, and bring a friend or two!
Tickets to our third annual Super Bowl Party are now on sale at the parish office. The doors will open at 3:30. Cost will be $25 per ticket, which includes food and beverage of your choice! We will watch the game on big screen TV, and enjoy each other's company. You must be 21 or over to participate.
Next weekend, we will be blessing throats after all of the Masses, in honor of St. Blase, whose feast day is celebrated each year on Feb. 3.
This year, we have to get back into the Annual Catholic Appeal. The kick-off for this appeal is the weekend of Feb. 1. Stay tuned!
Two weeks ago, we had our first ever Youth Mass! More than 100 young people participated, and it was a fantastic, energetic, lively experience! Plus, we had some pizza in the hall afterwards. We hope to make this a monthly event. Our Youth Group meets every Friday at 7:00PM. Stop by and find out what we are all about!
You really know that time is flying by when we start talking about the CARNIVAL! It will be here in 6 months! I would like to have a very brief meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 4, beginning at 7PM in Kinsella Hall. Save the dates: July 30 – August 2!
Have a blessed week!
