Welcome to Our Lady of the Snows Parish
My Dear Fellow Parishioners:
It is hard to believe that July is almost over! That means school starts in less than a month (Aug. 18)! Registration for the coming school year continues, also for our Religious Education Program.
Some good news about the school: we will need to open up a second Kindergarten Room! This will mark the first time in almost 10 years that we will have two Pre-Schools and two Kindergartens! Hopefully, we will continue to build from the bottom up! Because the second room has practically no furnishings, I have offered to give at least $1,000 from the Garage Sale to purchase some basic equipment.
Thanks for those who joined us last weekend at BEN FEST, at the invitation of our “sharing parish” St. Benedict. I am returning the invite by inviting them to come to our Carnival and Picnic!
It is hard to believe after all this preparation, THE CARNIVAL IS NEXT WEEK! Keep the dates open- Thursday July 30 (6-10PM) Friday July 31 (6-11PM) Saturday August 1 (3-11PM) Sunday, August 2 (2-10PM) Pray for good weather! Mega Passes and Bingo Tickets (for the Bingo on Aug. 1 at 4pm) are now on sale! Raffle Tickets can be returned to the parish office or in the collection! Raffle Tickets can also be purchased at the First Aid Booth at the Carnival.
Just a reminder that MEGA PASSES will be available at the $40.00 Price in the Parish Office only until 3:00PM on July 30. After that, they will have to be purchased at the Carnival for $50.00. No exceptions!
Bingo Tickets are $20 presale and $25 at the door!
Mark the date for the Parish Picnic! Sunday August 30 at Sundown Meadows!
These are hard times for the parish financially. Collections are down because people are on vacation, and tuition money does not start rolling in until August. Sadly, the bills do not stop! The bills never stop! Please consider this in your weekly donations!
Finally, please be aware that parking next weekend will be very difficult. When you come to Mass, please try to carpool, or walk if possible!
Enjoy the Summer! Pray for each other! Pray for St. Benedict, our sharing Parish!
