Welcome to Our Lady of the Snows Parish
My Dear Parishioners:
Today is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross! Rarely does this celebration fall on a Sunday, and when it does, it takes the place of the “Ordinary Time” celebration. When you look at the Cross, and what it represented in Biblical times, it hardly seems like something to be honored, much less “exalted”! It was an instrument of torture reserved for the worst of criminals. Yet, it remains one of the most powerful symbols of our faith. It is only through the Cross that Resurrection can be accomplished. How often Jesus encouraged His followers to “take up your cross”. Lord, to every cross, I touch my lips!
BIBLE STUDY began last Thursday, Sept. 11, at 7:00PM. This semester we will be exploring the Women of the Old Testament! Call the office if you are interested in joining us!
Lots of things are happening around here this time of year! All of the organizations resume their monthly meetings and the school and the Church are in constant use! Some of the September events you may want to put on your calendars: Family School Association meeting Friday, Sept. 19 at 7:00PM; This is a group of school parents (of course others are welcome) who work on ways to make our school a better place, and to raise funds for the school. They meet monthly. Our next BLOOD DRIVE is next Sunday, Sept. 21 after all the Masses. Give the gift of life! It takes less than 30 minutes!
Don’t forget to buy a ticket for our annual Dinner Dance on Oct. 4! The evening will begin with Mass at 5:00PM, and will continue with a party at the Mayfield, right down the street on Archer Ave. Let us celebrate as a parish!
I hope that you are interested in helping me get healthy by pledging me in my weight loss efforts! All proceeds go to support our school. The flyer was in the bulletin a few weeks ago, but there are plenty more in the office! Maybe you are interested in joining me. Perhaps we can eventually get a small walking group going. Let’s get healthy together!
Just a note about the To Teach Who Christ is Campaign. To date we have just a little less than $10,000 of cash in hand that has already been collected, and has been deposited in a special account that only Our Lady of the Snows has access to! This number does not include more than $5,600 that has been given directly to the parish toward the air-conditioning and the roof. Thank you for your generosity! When I present my Annual Report in a few weeks, I will give a detailed breakdown of how this money is already being used!
Have a great week! Let’s pray for one another!
