Lots to pray for!
Prayers of gratitude and supplication
We are so grateful to all those parishioners who worked hard over the past few months on preparing the Spring Dinner! And a hearty thanks to everyone who pitched in today to pick up the pieces as the storm threw all the plans into chaos. A blizzard in mid-April! "Ice and snow, bless the Lord!"
We pray for a safe drive home tonight for those who came to the dinner. And a safe drive tomorrow for Mass!
Remember that if it is unsafe for you to come to church tomorrow, then you are automatically dispensed! Prudence is a virtue--be virtuous! You can spend an hour praying at home if you can't make it safely here.
The silent auction and special appeal will take place over the coming week. The cutoff for bidding will be next Sunday the 22nd at the end of coffee and donuts at 1pm. (The sign-up for group events will be postponed to the following week.)
I received sad news this evening that Deacon Mike Kraemer had some major heart issues while on vacation in Hawaii. He is in the ICU there and needs our prayers. Please also pray for his wife Linda as she is there by herself trying to cope with this crisis. May Our Lady extend her maternal protection to these faithful servants!
God bless you all!
