CHURCH HISTORY   Fr. John and Julie Houston are going to be working on putting together a “Church History” book for our parish.   If you have any records, pictures, stories, etc. about our parish that you would like to have included in this book, please contact Fr. John or drop items off at the Church Office.  We will make copies of any items and return the originals to you. 

ALTOONA CURVE BASEBALL / 3rd BASE PICNIC AREA   An evening out at the Altoona Curve is being planned for Sunday, August 1st at 6:00 P.M.  We have reserved the 3rd Base Picnic Area which will seat 50 people.  A sign-up sheet, to see if we have enough interest in attending this game, has been placed on the Cry Room shelf.  Cost per ticket will be $8.00.  You do not have to pay at this time, we are just looking to see if there is enough that will attend.  When we attended two years ago, a great time of fellowship and fun was had by all.  You must provide your own transportation. 

FALL FEST   Plans for Fall Fest on Sunday, October 24th are starting and parishioners are being asked to help make this event a success.  This will be an event that will help bring the parish closer together, allows us to show our hospitality to others and to raise money for our Parish Improvement Campaign.  There will be many ways that you and your family can make this day a great success:  Donate baskets to be raffled, donate gift cards, sell raffle tickets and donate your time to help setup, cleanup or work during the day.  Please mark your calendars now for a day of fun and fellowship and watch the bulletin for more information.
