Welcome to Our Lady of the Snows Parish
My Dear Fellow Parishioners:
The students in our REP Program start their classes this weekend. It looks like we will have more than 150 students again this year! We welcome them and their Catechists back to another year of learning about God, the Sacraments and the Catholic Faith. May God bless them! This year, the REP Classes are being held on Saturday mornings, from 9:00AM until 10:30.
This is also the time of year when all of the Parish Organizations spring back into action! All of our organizations exist for the good of the parish! We ask God and Our Lady of the Snows to bless all of us with a great year! Just a few out of many…the Bible Study in Spanish has already begun on Wednesdays, and the English Bible Study begins on Sept. 10 at 7:00PM. We will begin this session with the Gospel of St. John.
Next Sunday, Sept. 20, is Catechetical Sunday. We are inviting the Catechists in the REP Program, as well as the teachers in our School, to come to the 10:30AM Mass, to receive a blessing as they continue to plant the seeds of the Gospel! Of course, there are still openings in all grades for both programs!
Don’t forget to put our Annual Dinner Dance on your calendars! It is less than a month away! Oct. 3, beginning with Mass at 5:00PM, and continuing with our party at the Mayfield afterwards. This year, we are trying to make it an All School Reunion, honoring in a special way the First Graduation Class of Our Lady of the Snows (1965)! This will mark their 50th anniversary, as well as the 55th anniversary of the parish! Please tell all of you family members, neighbors and friends, especially if they went to school here! Tickets are $55 per person, which includes a fabulous dinner and an open bar! They are available now at the parish office. There will also be an Ad Book as part of this celebration. Use this book to advertise your business, or just to include a message from yourself or your family!
The next Parish Blood Drive will be on Sept. 27. The summer always leaves the Blood Banks almost empty. Let’s do our part to help save lives!
As always, sometime in October, I will be delivering the State of the Union address, presenting to you, both in the bulletin and from the pulpit, the end of the year financial report, as well as information about the parish in general. Please continue to be generous in the Sunday collection. This is our primary source of income, and these collections are always very low during the summer months.
Be good to each other! Pray for each other, especially those who are sick!
