Land of Peace Mission

Next week, our brothers and sisters representing the Land of Peace mission- a nonprofit organization will be with us speaking about the Christian situation in the Holy Land and selling Crucifixes, religious art work, and rosaries- all made of olive wood which is native to Israel and Bethlehem. Since tourism has greatly depleted, Christian families in the holy land, who depend on tourists, have been greatly affected. The goal of this mission is to help the poor and needy families in Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Sale of these goods will help them very much and also give you the opportunity to have “something” authentic from the holy land. Please browse and buy some articles. It is for a good cause and also a help to your personal devotion.

Raffle Tickets

for Knights of Columbus are available to purchase after weekend Mass. See Ted Czajkowski or Tony Oldigs

Christmas Memorial Poinsettias

Christmas will be here very soon. If you would like to donate to the flowers in memory or honor of someone, we are now taking donations. Be sure to have your donation into the parish office by December 17th. This will give the office time to compile the list of donors and get it in the Christmas Bulletin.
