Announcements (August 19, 2007)

1. The two-bit collection is for Peru earthquake relief. Your contributions will help the Vincentian Sisters who suffered great losses in the August 15 earthquake. Your generosity will help them rebuild and continue their work among orphans and the poor of Peru. If you wish to write a check, please make it out to "Holy Family" and write "Peru" or "earthquake" in the memo.

2. The two-bit collection for St. Vincent de Paul will take place next week, but if you brought a St. Vincent de Paul envelope you may place it in the basket and it will be used to help the needy in our parish neighborhoods.

3. Next Saturday we have our parish potluck picnic from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Tice Hall. Please see the flier on the bulletin boards or contact Betty Weller or any member of St. Martha’s Sodality for more information. Please join this enjoyable community-building event.

4.Catholic Scripture Study begins in just three weeks. This year the participants will study the Book of Revelation. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn more about the Bible and how it applies to our lives.

5. The bulletin has information about volunteer opportunities, the Summer Faith Formation Series, R.C.I.A., as well as important news about our parish school. Please be sure to take home a bulletin.
