Father's Reflections Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sep 14, 2018

Dear St. Paul Family,

Our Fall Festival will take place the weekend of October 20th & 21st.  Raffle tickets are now available for pick-up in the back of Church with your name on them.  A special thank you to Jacobs Meat Market for sponsoring the printing of our raffle tickets this year.  Tickets are $20/each with the grand prize at $5,000 once again this year and 49 other cash prizes.  We will only be selling 1,200 tickets so your odds of winning are 1:24.  We do have many more than 1,200 tickets printed but we only accept the first 1,200.  Please sell as many raffle tickets as you can to help make this year’s Fall Festival Raffle a success.  Everyone’s help is needed.  We only have five more weeks to sell 1,200 tickets.  Also, we are now accepting donations of new and handcrafted items for our silent auction.  Donations can be brought to the parish office during the week, or can be given to an usher or greeter on Sunday.  Let’s work together to make this year’s Fall Festival a wonderful celebration for our parish.

Last week we received word that Bishop Ricken has temporarily suspended the capital campaign for all pilot parishes of which we are a part.  Instead, we will now be included with the first wave of the capital campaign.  I will keep you informed as we get more details as to when this will now take place. 

If you have not made a gift to the Seminary Appeal Collection yet, please do so this week.  Your generosity in helping to form our future priests in the seminary is greatly appreciated.

Have a Great Week!

Fr. Andy
