Announcements (May 27, 2007)

1. Our two-bit collection today is for our parish Birthright. Your donations will support this important work of reaching out to those in crisis pregnancies. Holy Family parishioners have received training to serve as Birthright volunteers. If you desire more information, please call the Birthright phone number on the front of the bulletin.

2. Thank you for your response to the Annual Catholic Appeal. In this Sunday’s bulletin you will find a green flier with the names of parishioners who have returned a pledge envelope. We may not have some names – for example, if they were not written on the outside of the envelope or more recently sent directly to the Archdiocese. In the month of June we will make available a final list. Also we will send follow-up letters to those we have not yet heard from. If you haven't yet done so, please return your envelope this week. Thank you.

3. Next Sunday school parents and members of the parish Hispanic community are sponsoring a Carnival from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will feature delicious food, games for children and fun activities for all. Please plan on attending.

4. Principal Glen Lutz has made available copies of the excellent booklet titled “Pure Love” by Jason Evert. You may pick up the booklet in the vestibule for a two-dollar donation. Please place your donation in the collection or in one of the strong boxes.

5. Today’s bulletin contains information on adult education opportunities, the formation of a children’s choir, as well as opportunities for adults and young people to participate in the music ministry of our parish. Please take home a bulletin and read it carefully.
