Welcome to Our Lady of the Snows Parish
Dear Fellow Parishioners:
I thought that our Holy Week and Easter celebrations were reverent and beautiful! As always, I have a deep appreciation for all who have a hand in making these liturgies so moving, including the people who clean the Church, all of our Musicians, Cantors and Choir Members, Altar Servers, Lectors, Ushers, Ministers of Communion, The Art and Environment Committee, Priests and Deacon, and of course: ALL OF YOU! You, who choose to worship with us during these Holy Times. If I forgot anyone in this inspiring litany, please forgive me!
Today is Divine Mercy Sunday. As we did last year, we will pray the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy after each of the Masses. We have the prayer booklets available in English, Spanish and Polish, and they will be available to you after each Mass.Hopefully, we will also have a Holy Card for you, commemorating the canonization of two great Popes today, John XXIII, who convened the Second Vatican Council, and John Paul II, the only Polish Pope, of recent memory.
Today, April 27, is also the date of our Blood Drive. Even if you do not have an appointment, stop in and see if you are eligible to donate. You will be surprised to learn that most people are able to donate, and it only takes about 30 minutes. One donation has the potential to save 3 lives!
It is also Inspiration Weekend for our “To Teach Who Christ Is Campaign”. I will be speaking at all the Masses this weekend.
The next Carnival Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 29th at 7:00PM in Kinsella Hall. Keep up the prayers…so far the planning is going well! Volunteers are always needed!
There are still some Information Packets for the To Teach Who Christ Is Campaign. If you did not receive one last week, please take one. I will be speaking at all the Masses next weekend to lay out some more details!
Start cleaning out your closets! On June 14, we will be having a Parish Garage Sale, in order to raise funds for the Carnival. More on this in a few weeks!
