From Fr. Dennis’ Desk

Coming Soon to a Parish NEAR you!

Yes, that’s right – it’s not too soon to gear up for the annual Apple Harvest Festival, to be held on Sunday, September 16, 2012 just down the street at Shepardson Community Center from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. with the raffle drawing concluding the day.  It promises to be a grand time – meet some old friends and make new ones.

Come on along! There will be numerous volunteers, especially among the youth of our parish…BUT there is always room for more – YOU!  On the next page of the bulletin is the contact information for signing up – we need helpers at all levels of skill and expertise.  Here are a few things that everyone can do:

 Sell your raffle tickets (books were mailed out to all registered families) and return the stubs.  Raffle returns are running ahead of last year;

 Go through your home (especially attic and basement) and see what you can donate to the giant tag sale;

 Volunteer! Volunteer! Volunteer!  All or part of the day – any place you feel you can make a difference.

 Hang your Rosary beads out the window, to pray for good weather (If you did not grow up doing this, it’s a great time to start now).

Call one of our co-chairs if you have questions.  You’ll be glad you did!

Looking for all hands on deck,

Fr. Dennis J. Vincenzo
