The Knights of Columbus council invite all parishioners to attend the donut social in Johnson Hall on October 20th following the 8:00 a.m. Mass.
We plan to use this event to replace our annual cake sale. All proceeds and donations will support the Christmas outreach program for the St. Francis Center in McArthur, Ohio.
We appreciate the past generosity of all the people of our parish, which has allowed us to support the center for the past 20 years. We ask you once again to help us support those less fortunate than ourselves and look forward to seeing everyone at our social!

“…proclaim the word, be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient...” 2 Timothy 4:2
It is not always convenient to be a good steward, especially when all the temptations of our busy and materialistic world get in the way. Now add our own pride and ego into the equation and living a stewardship lifestyle may be downright uncomfortable! Remember, God didn’t call us to be comfortable. He called us to be faithful.
Learn how you can be a good steward by supporting your parish and contact The Catholic Foundation. Visit www.catholic-foundation.org/development for more information.
