DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR UPDATE: WE NEED YOUR HELP!

As we plan for an alumni gathering in conjunction with the school’s 65th anniversary celebration we would like to collect updated contact information for our alumni. If
you would be willing to help with this, please contact Heidi in the office. You can also send updated information to her email at dbq218s1@dbqarch.org Thank you!


Our Faith School Tuition Organization (STO)

65% Tax Credit Too Good to be True? Not at all. If you file an Iowa Income Tax Return, your contributions to the Our Faith School Tuition Organization (STO) receive a 65% tax credit. That means for every $1000 you donate, you receive an Iowa income tax credit of $650, which reduces your Iowa tax liability by $650. In addition, the entire amount of your gift qualifies for federal deductibility. And that gift you made? It helps make a Catholic school
education affordable for every child, regardless of their families’ financial situation. It really is that simple. Visit www.OurFaithSto.org or call the Archdiocese of Dubuque at 800-876-3546 ext. 219 or 307 to learn more.


Are you called? Do you have some time and talent? We are needing additional singers/
musicians and asking that you contact Marty Doerning through email or after Mass.

AND….Would you consider helping set up for Masses as a Sacristan? AND….taking a turn laundering and ironing the with cloths/purificators, etc. that are used at Mass? Talk to Marty for this also!!

Invitation to Participate

Are you or anyone you know interested in exploring the Catholic Church as your Church home? Have you been sitting in the pew next to your Catholic spouse for years wondering what you have to do to become Catholic? RCIA is designed for a wide variety of people: people who have never been baptized or have no church to call their own, people who have been baptized and wish to join our faith, engaged persons who wish to learn more about our faith, Catholics who for some reason have never received Eucharist or Confirmation, or Catholics who have drifted away and have a desire to re-connect or refresh their understanding of our beliefs. This is a personal invitation and a challenge to all of you who might know someone who fits the categories above to invite that person to the RCIA inquiry session on September 24 at 9:00 in the morning.


The bulletin deadline is Monday at noon for any notices, announcements, etc. you wish to have included in the bulletin.  Please call, email or drop off the notice to the office.


ATTENTION ALL PARISHIONERS:

Those having redeemable cans and bottles, may take them to Webster City Redemption Center and have them put the money in the Knights Fund there. The money will be used to aid a seminarian.
