Announcements (August 7, 2005)

1. In our two-bit collections we are focusing on some specific parish needs which we want you to know more about. This Sunday the two-bit collection is for upgrading parish security system. As you know our rectory was burglarized earlier this year and a few weeks ago, the statue of St. Michael was vandalized. Your contributions will help our Building Committee in developing an overall security system.

2. There will be a baptism preparation class this Tuesday evening. Please see the announcement in the bulletin for full information.

3. The parish potluck will take place next Saturday from noon to three. The St. Martha’s Sodality will provide refreshments, bingo and door prizes. We ask you to bring a dessert, main dish, chips or salad. Any and all ethnic food is welcome. Full information is on the bulletin boards or by calling Daniele Curtis. Registrations for CCD/Religious Education will be available at potluck and after all Masses next Sunday.

4. Archbishop Brunett will come to Holy Family Parish on September 4 for the diaconate ordination of Peter Mactutis. The Mass will take place at 10 a.m. on the first Sunday of September.
