FAITHFUL STEWARDS

We thank the unsung heroes of our parish who are willing and eager to be of assistance whenever they are called upon to fulfill the needs of a particular ministry or activity of our parish.  It has been our experience, that whenever someone is called to serve in a particular capacity, they invariably respond with a resounding "YES!"  You are an inspiration to all of us who serve on your Pastoral Team.



BRING YOUR SWEETHEART AND CELEBRATE VALENTINES DAY WITH US AT NIGHT AT THE RACES

Will be held this year in Seton Auditorium on Saturday, February 14th,  with doors opening at 6:00 p.m.  You will soon receive a letter asking your support of the Holy Name and Altar and Rosary Society event.  You are asked to purchase as many horses as you want at $10.00 each.  This allows you free admission to the event where food and refreshments will be featured along with lots of fun.  This is an adult only function for our parish. An opportunity will be afforded to sponsor a race "in honor of", "in memory of" or "in support of" a particular business venture.  The donation for sponsorship will be $50.00 per race.  We look forward to your being there.  You do not have to be present to win.
