Christmas Bazaar planning meeting
Mark your calendars! Our annual Christmas Bazaar is on November 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and as we are in the final planning stages for the event our next planning meeting will be Tuesday, September 26 at 6:30 p.m. in Fr. O’Hara Hall. This is an important meeting, and anyone interested in volunteering is asked to attend. We are specifically looking for several people to sign up for the raffle tables. We also need new and unused items to use as prizes; these can be left behind the screen at the church entrance on the rectory side. Please DO NOT leave new-to-you items in this area—the dates and times for new-to-you item drop-off will be posted in the upcoming weeks. If you have any questions, or need someone to pick up a donation, please contact Lori Bose at 524-6207.
Wedding anniversary celebration
The Office of Marriage Preparation & Enrichment is sponsoring the annual wedding anniversary celebration honoring couples in the diocese who have observed, or will be observing, their 25th, 40th, 50th, and 50+ year wedding anniversaries in 2023. The celebration will be held on Sunday, October 22 at 1 p.m. at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Providence. It will include Mass, renewal of marriage vows, a personalized certificate for each couple and a reception for the couples and their families. Bishop Richard G. Henning will be the main celebrant and homilist.  To register you can obtain a form from the parish office.  All completed forms must be returned by Friday, September 8.
Update your parish records
Have you moved or changed you phone number? Did you get married or change your email? Please call the parish office to update your information. Often the church needs to get in touch with parishioners and outdated information makes this process very difficult. The parish office is open M-F from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to noon.
Hearing Assistive Devices available
The parish has purchased several assistive devices for hearing impaired parishioners to use. These are located on the counter in the first room of the sacristy. Take an earphone and connect to one of the receivers. Then you may keep and reuse the earphone each week, but please return the receiver!
