Our next Monthly Potluck Social will be held after Mass on April 7 in the Msgr. Thomas H. Smith Social Hall.
Fr. Olkowski would like to host an organizational meeting with the parents of children to be confirmed in the traditional rite by Bishop Gainer later this year. The meeting will be held in the St. Francis Room following the first hour of April’s monthly potluck social — next Sunday, April 7th at approximately 4 p.m. Father hopes to solicit feedback to design a course to supplement instruction in the home. If you have not yet indicated your desire to have your child confirmed, please do so by writing firstname.lastname@example.org.
