Bulletin Deadline for March

Sacramental Sale and Mulch Sale

The youth group will be having their annual sacramental sale after all Masses the weekends of March 7th/8th and March 14th /15th in the Cloister Walkway. This is a great opportunity to support the youth of the parish and purchase gifts for Frist Communion, Confirmation, and RCIA – or, just for you. There is a large assortment of rosaries, jewelry, and sacramental objects for you to purchase. The proceeds from the sale help to offset the cost of summer camps and conferences that the youth attend throughout the year.

Orders for mulch will also be taken during the Sacramental Sale. An order form will be available in the March 8th bulletin, or stop by the booth in the Cloister Walkway. Need help spreading the mulch? Ask Tina Burtch about how to "rent a teen" to help you with that yardwork.
