A Labor of Love

Tomorrow we celebrate Labor Day as a nation.  Since 1894 (Grover Cleveland signed it into law as a federal holiday), at the behest of labor unions, it celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers.

Here in our wonderful parish, we need a “Labor of Love” from our members:  the Apple Harvest Festival 2013.  On September 15, 2013, in just two weeks, we need “All Hands on Deck” to volunteer or contribute in some way.  First of all, sell your raffle tickets (and ask for more!).  Next clean out your basement, garage, or attic, and donate saleable items to our tag sale and Book Nook (please!! No junk!!).  Further, consider volunteering for a shift or two to help out.  We need you—come and help us.  Elsewhere in the bulletin is the contact information.

Finally, come and support this great event, from 9:00am to 4:00pm on September 15th, at Shepardson.  Feel free to park in our lot and walk down.

Each of us can make some contribution, simply as a Labor of Love.

See you there,

Fr. Dennis J. Vincenzo
