There is quite a collection of dishes in the foyer from the several funerals we have had recently. Please pick up your dishes after Mass or during the week 8 am-2 pm.


Social Justice
The next collection for Social Justice on August 18/19 will be for “Back to School”. Please be as generous as possible. The next Food Bank is August 21, this time we will be collecting oral hygiene products (Tooth brushes/paste, floss, and mouthwash). There is a box in the foyer. Thank you for your continued generosity!!


Q&A Did you know?

A parishioner recently asked about daily Mass offerings. If you wish to have a loved one who has died remembered especially at a daily or weekend Mass, stop in the parish office and Rita, our secretary, will help you arrange a time. The Catholic Church has taught for centuries that our prayers are of assistance to those who have died. We commend their soul to God’s mercy and pray for them personally and at a Mass offered for them. A Mass can be
scheduled on a date that you request if not already spoken for and it will be listed in each week’s bulletin. The suggested stipend for the Mass is $5.


 

Knights of Columbus Can Drive for Seminarians

The Knights of Columbus are collecting cans for Archdiocese of Dubuque Seminarians. You can call for pick-up: Dennis 297-1602, John 712-249-3060 or Kyle 515-293-0026. These Knights would stop and pick them up for you, or you can take them directly to the redemption center and designate to KC’s. Thank you.
