Welcome to Our Lady of the Snows Parish
Dear Fellow Parishioners:
I will continue to begin each letter with this greeting, because the Easter Season lasts for 50 days. You may get tired of it after a while, but that’s OK! As a gentle reminder of this, we will be using the Sprinkling Rite.
Save the date and mark your calendars! On May 2, at 6:30PM, right here in our own Church, we are having the world renowned vocal ensemble LYRA, from St. Petersburg, Russia! They will be performing chants of the Russian Orthodox Church, and Folk Songs from Russia. You won’t want to miss it! The concert is free, but free will donations are accepted!
How appropriate that during this joyful season of Easter, so many of our young children will be receiving Our Lord in Holy Communion for the first time on May 9. We have nearly 100 dear ones who will be making their First Holy Communion! So many that, for the first time, we are having two Masses, one at 10AM for the school children, and one at noon for our REP students!
Last week, our school had a successful visit from the National Accreditation Team, in conjunction with the Archdiocese of Chicago. We might not be the biggest school, but we are the best!
This coming Thursday, I will be going to Springfield with our 8th Graders, for their annual trip. I am looking forward to it! Pray for them as they prepare to graduate!
We have submitted our budget, and have a meeting next week with the Archdiocese to review it! Say a prayer to St. Matthew!
Our next Parish Blood Drive is next Sunday, April 26, after all the Masses. Please be generous and save a life! Our Lady of the Snows always responds well to these appeals!
Have a blessed week! Pray for one another!
