the 7:00am OLM mass at St. Patrick's Church on Sunday. And finally
- it has been brought to my attention that some people are planning
on bringing baked goods from Costco, etc. for the Spirit of Christmas
Bake Sale Wednesday night. Please let your parents know that we cannot sell those items, as we cannot ask people to pay prices for items
they can purchase for less than half the price elsewhere. This bake sale
is an opportunity to do some Christmas baking with your parent and
have special time together creating something unique and special that
brings joy to others, and raises money to help those who are cold,
hungry, and feeling unloved at this time of year.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing, and maybe tasting,
