As the summer continues:

We have received a date for Confirmation this Fall. We are pleased that Confirmation will be held on October 27, 2018, at 10:30 AM, at Saint Mary Church with the Most Reverend Peter A. Rosazza presiding.

If you are in your junior year of high school, this is your year to be Confirmed. If you have not heard from us via email about this year’s date for Confirmation, we may not have a correct email address. Please email: so we can be sure you are included.

There will be a retreat for those being Confirmed on September 16, 2018, beginning with 4:30 Mass at Saint Mary Church, and concluding around 8:30 PM. The retreat will include the opportunity for the sacrament of Reconciliation. All those being Confirmed should attend. There will be a rehearsal for Confirmation on October 21, 2018, following the 4:30 Mass. Rehearsal will last less than an hour, and again, all should plan to attend.

Religious Education begins again September 30, 2018, and the class schedule is available on the parish website. We always welcome volunteers that wish to teach our students. Volunteers need to be VIRTUS trained and background checked prior to classes beginning. There will be VIRTUS training here in our parish in September at a date to be determined. If you think you would like to volunteer, or if you have volunteered in the past and would like to continue, please contact Tori Saxer at the email address on the bulletin cover.

Members of the Saint Agnes and Saint Mary Ladies Guilds are in the process of combining into one. They are to be commended for their efforts to reflect that we are one parish now. We are sure this new Precious Blood Ladies Guild will continue service to the parish as the two former Ladies Guilds always have.

May you each have a peaceful and restful remaining time of summer, and may God bring you blessings in all you do.
