Sign up NOW to volunteer for the Fall Festival!
We have a very nice podium in the Hall. Please handle with care. It was made by one our own, Bob Lewis. In fact before Bob presented it to us, he entered it into the Howard County Fair and won a Blue Ribbon for it. Now if only all the words spoken from it over the next twenty years could meet that standard! So thanks Bob.
Our Fall Fest is Saturday October 7th from 10-5 with evening Mass at 5:15 in the Church. My hope is for a HUGE turnout. There will be a lot of activities and food and stuff to browse and buy, but the best part is just hanging out with friends and making new ones. So come out and have a blast. The proceeds are split three ways: St. Paul, RSPS, and Resurrection. The school and our parish will use our portion to add additional parking along the circle in front of the church and school.
Every priest is supposed to make a retreat every year. I have been negligent in this the past few years, but I am going to go to Spain leaving Oct. 8th to walk the Camino pilgrimage journey to St. James Cathedral in Santiago. I am looking forward to this quiet, reflective time. I won’t be walking the whole 500 miles as the proposal was defeated by my feet, but I will be walking far enough to get my certificate that says I’m a good boy.
Next weekend I will speak briefly at all the masses to say thank you to all who have participated in the Vision 20’20 campaign and give an update on the progress. I will also give one final public appeal to those who have not yet made a pledge or gift. The campaign has done well and I just wish that everyone would come on board at whatever level of giving you are able.
