Announcements (March 3, 2002)

1. Our two-bit collection is for Helpers of God's Precious Infants. This is a local organization which promotes respect for the dignity of each human life.

2. Thank you for your contributions last Sunday for School Renovation. $551 were donated to help in taking the next steps in the seismic upgrade of our parish school.

3. Last Sunday we posted a list of all the active parish donors we were able to identify. Since then we have received names of some who were not included. An updated list has been posted at the three entrances of the church. Again, we ask you to check to make sure your name is included. If not please drop a note in the collection or at the rectory - or give us a call. Thank you. We appreciate your support of Holy Family.

4. Please plan on joining fellow parishioners for Soup Nights, every Friday evening during Lent beginning at 5:30 p.m. Also Stations of the Cross are celebrated Friday evenings in the Church at 7 p.m.

5. During Lent we have a "Workingman's Mass" every Friday morning at 7 a.m. All are invited to attend.

6. Vespers and Benediction are celebrated every Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. Please come and experience this beautiful prayer.

7. This Thursday, March 7, is the first Thursday of March. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be celebrated from 4 to 8 p.m. here in Holy Family Church. In both the confessional "box" and the reconciliation room there is the option of face to face or anonymous confession (behind a screen). This is a good opportunity for Lenten confession.

8. Scrip is for sale after Mass. Please use scrip for your shopping at local stores. It will cost you nothing extra and is an effective way of supporting your parish and its school.
