SHROVE TUESDAY~ MARDI GRAS for Corpus Christi
The word shrove is the past tense of the English verb shrive, which means to obtain absolution for one's sins by way of Confession and doing penance. Thus Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the custom for Christians to be "shriven" before the start of Lent. Please join us for our annual “Shrove Tuesday Feast before the Fast” on Tuesday, February 13th from 6pm – 8pm at the McAteer Parish Center. Bring/share your favorite dishes (some of which you’re probably giving up for Lent). Drinks and table service provided. If able, we ask that you bring a canned good (alms giving) to donate to St Vincent DePaul Society; and join us as we begin our preparations for Easter 2018. Doors open at 5:30
We are closing out the 2017 Annual Diocesan Appeal. To date we have reached our pledged goal and actually exceeded it by $550! Goal $47,078 Pledged $$47,628. This was possible by one very generous parishioner that pledged and paid $2,205. However, not everyone has made good on their pledges. We are still short $2,023.35 from our goal and $2,573.35 from our pledges. We do know that unexpected things happen (loss of job, illness,death, etc.), but if there's anyway you can complete your pledge it would greatly be appreciated. If you haven't pledged anything or could give a little more, it's not too late. The Diocese will collect pledges and contributions through February 28th.
Thanks to all of you who pledged and contributed to this very worthy cause.
