Coming up in September

Coming up in September, we will be offering a bible study on the Acts of the Apostles. This is a DVD presentation by Jeff Cavins and has time for small group discussion and reflection. Days and times are flexible. We are looking at Monday before the evening Mass or on Wednesday evenings as possible times. Let me know if you are interested in participating.

5th Anniversary for Bishop Raica

Wednesday, August 28th is the 5th anniversary for Bishop Raica being installed as our bishop. The Mass readings will be special for this occasion. All Masses said on Wednesday around the diocese are to be said in celebration of this important day.

School Open House

Our St. Mary School Open House and Cookout is on Tuesday, August 27th from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. Stop in for some food, fellowship and meet the new staff and say Hi to those who are returning.

Hunter’s Banquet

The Knights of Columbus will be having a Hunter’s Banquet this coming October 10th in the parish center. They will have tickets for the dinner available after the Masses starting this weekend or you can contact a Knight for tickets. They will also have raffle tickets for $800 Jay’s Sporting Goods gift card and other prizes. The money raised will be for support of the Charlevoix Food Pantry.

Review Contact Information

After the Masses this weekend the Pastoral Council will have volunteers in the gym after the Masses assisting parishioners to review their contact information and family status for our records. It would be appreciated if you could stop in, review what data we currently have and amend, add or delete incorrect or outdated information. If you are unable to do this in person, we will attempt to contact you individually. You will also be able to sign up for parish ministries while you are checking your information.

Please make every effort to review your information on the above weekends so we know the information we have is accurate and therefore we won’t have to contact you at a later date.

Pancake Breakfast

This weekend there will be a pancake breakfast on Sunday( Aug 25, 2019) from 9:30am to 12:30pm in the parish center. This is to support our students going to Washington DC this coming year.

School supplies for kids

There is a box in the gathering space for school supplies for kids who are in need for the upcoming school year. 75 Backpacks have been donated by Safe Haven Ministries, and we would like to help fill them up. These are for kids at the schools in Charlevoix. Take a flyer, and as you shop see if you can add in something for one of these kids.
