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 next Sunday, September 14 just down the street at Shepardson Community Center from 9:00AM-4:00PM with the raffle drawing concluding the day. It promises to be a great 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! We need helpers at all levels of skill and expertise. Here are a few things that everyone can do:

• Sell your raffle tickets (tickets were mailed out to all registered families) and return your stubs.
• Go through your home (especially your attic and basement) and see what you can donate to the 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).

Looking for all hands on deck,
Fr. Dennis J. Vincenzo
