Congratulations!!
Summer is here and I am asking if you
are planning to be away, please consider
submitting your summer envelopes before
you leave. It is essential because those
monies are important to help us pay our
summer bills and keep our budget balanced. As you know our fiscal year ends
August 31, 2016, so it is important we
have a balanced budget.
Thank you very much for your continued
sacrifices in supporting our parish. We
could not pay our monthly bills without
your generosity. I appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Have a peaceful, prayerful, enjoyable and
safe summer!
AIR CONDITIONING
ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL
The warm weather is here and
thank God our Church is air
conditioned. However, it is very
difficult to please everyone. Some
say the Church is nice and cool,
others it’s too cold, and some say
it’s a little warm. If you are
sensitive to the cold, may I
suggest that you bring a sweater
or sit on the schoolyard side of
the Church. It tends to be a little
warmer on that side because of
the sun shining through the
windows.
The theme of this year’s Annual
Catholic Appeal is “Share the Joy of
the Gospel”. Anyone who wishes to
make a donation may take an appeal form which is available at the
back of church. Those who were
not able to pledge to the
Generations of Faith Campaign, but
can make a donation to the appeal,
it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
Our goal for the appeal is $39,189.
Thus far $25,621.00 has been
pledged and $20,506.00 has been
received. This support comes from
108 donors. I thank you for your
generosity.

of August 7, 2016
ALTAR WINE
Is being Offered for
Kathy Culkin
Requested by
Culkin Family
FOCUS:
Through placing our
faith in God and living according to
his commands, we become a source of
hope. As we read almost daily about
terrorism and violence, it can seem
like the good guys are losing. This is
not the case. As long as believers in
God’s ways exist, there is hope that
love will overtake hate, good will
overtake evil. Jesus’ perfect sacrifice
of love upon the cross is definitive
proof that the power of sin and evil
has been defeated. What more do we
need?

Parish Calendar can be picked

SUMMER PRAYER
May our loving God watch over you and
keep alive in your heart all that you
have learned this year. Amen.
Keep your mind on God. Remember to
pray often and to celebrate your faith,
at home with your family, and at Mass
with your faith family. Amen.
Keep your faith in God. Let all the joys
of summer remind you of God’s
goodness. Never forget that God is
always with you, no matter what.
Amen.
May the God of all creation, who comes
to us in Jesus, and lives among us in the
Holy Spirit, keep you safe, happy, and
holy this summer and always. Amen.
When going on
vacation and you
need to know the
nearest Catholic
Church,
www.masstimes.org
will assist you.
Enjoy the summer!

PARKING IN THE SCHOOL YARD
When parking in the school yard, please
DO NOT park in front of the garbage
dumpsters. Those areas are not proper
places to park. Thank you for your
cooperation.
Please Consider Remembering
St. Francis of Assisi Parish in your
Will.
SUMMER DRESS– We
are all aware of the
warm days of summer
that are upon us. We
are very fortunate
that our church is air-conditioned.
Please dress appropriately when
coming to Mass.
Thank you.

Dear Altar Servers,
I hope you have a relaxing and safe summer. If you attend a mass and there is no altar server, feel free to
come up and serve. I know that some masses have no server or just one server; that’s because of vacation schedules.
I did my best to honor everyone’s availability to serve. If you are traveling – www.masstimes.org – will help you
find the closest Catholic Church. Remember to say your prayers everyday and attend mass every weekend. God has
given us many blessings and coming to mass is the best way to thank Him.
Thank you very much for your service at the altar.
God Bless,
Msgr. Maresca
