      Notes from the Pastor......

          We welcome Fr. Stephan Soares, a priest with the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales.  He asks your support for his order.

        At present there are three priests from the MSFS Order serving the Diocese of Alexandria. This appeal is for their mission work in Africa and India.  This appeal is done on behalf of the people who are affected by poverty, hunger, malnutrition, malaria and AIDS. Your generous support of the missions in Africa and India will be much appreciated and gratefully accepted.
        
       To make a donation to this Mission Appeal please use a pew envelope, mark it Mission Appeal and drop it in the collection basket. Please be prayerfully generous.     

         Our CCD Students will participate in a Living Rosary this Wednesday at 6 PM on the Church courtyard, followed by Benediction in the Church.  9th Graders and Confirmation Class will not meet and there will be no Wednesday evening meal as we are preparing for the Fall Festival.

      Our Fall Festival is next weekend!  Please plan to join us!
