Altar Servers needed:

Dear Parents and Altar Servers to be,

          If your child wants to be an Altar Server, we need them. This is a chance for all boys and girls 2nd grad and up to get closer to Jesus, through assisting at Mass.

          We are going to have a practice to learn how to serve at St. Mary's. The practice will be on Sunday, March 7th from 11:30 - 12:30.

Yours in the love of God,

Mr. Don Palmiscno

Dear Parents,

          This year our Lenten Project is entitled “Rosary: A prayer for others”.  We are asking the children to pray Rosaries for others.  Please keep track of the rosaries your family says during Lent.  If possible, we are asking them to bring a coin for every Rosary they pray.  We will be donating the coins to the poor.

          We hope that praying the Rosary with family will help them become more like Christ and help America to see the power of Prayer.

                                                          God Bless,

                                                          Mr. Don Palmiscno
