Grocery BoothThe greatest needs for the Grocery Booth are paper products and canned goods.

We need workers to work in the booths and help with set up and clean up. If you have not yet been contacted by a booth captain, and you are willing to work a shift or two, please call or text LeAnn at 402-321-0362 or Kris at 402-707-6204. Many hands make light work, and the two or four hours that you spend working in a booth and/or helping with set up and clean up make a big difference for our parish.

Pray for good weather and a successful festival!
Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of heaven and earth. You have chosen us to be your people and to give you glory in everything we do. Guide us as we prepare for the festival. We ask that you bless us with favorable weather, a large and friendly crowd, willing workers, and success on our festival day. We pray for blessings on our parish as we work together for your glory. Amen.

More ways you can help with the festival… There are fliers promoting the festival in the west lobby. Please take one if you know of a business that would allow you to put it in a visible place.

Volunteer to work a shift. We need workers to work in the booths and help with set up and clean up. If you have not yet been contacted by a booth captain, and you are willing to work a shift or two, please call or text LeAnn at 402-321-0362 or Kris at 402-707-6204.

Contribute to the Gift Card Basket Raffle. We are assembling a basket containing a variety of gift cards that will make an attractive and valuable prize. If you have any unused gift cards that have a full balance, consider donating them for this project. It will not cost you anything; it doesn’t require an extra trip to the store, and, best of all, it is an easy way to make a big contribution to the festival. (Even a $5.00 gift card to a coffee shop would be a nice addition to the basket.) Since all of the gift cards in the basket will be donated, all of the money generated by this raffle will be profit. A gift card of any amount for any store is appreciated. You can simply put the gift cards in an envelope marked Gift Card Raffle and drop it in the collection or drop it off at the rectory. Thank you!

Thank you for your glassware donations! We still have a way to go to reach our goal of 2,500 glassware items (glasses, mugs, ashtrays, etc.) for the Dime Pitch Booth, but we have a great start. Thrift stores and garage sales are great places to find inexpensive glassware! You may drop off your glassware donations in the west lobby.

Thank you for your donations for the Grocery Booth! We have reached our goal of 325 boxes of cereal! We need a few more packages of pasta, cake mixes, and condiments. The greatest needs for the Grocery Booth are paper products and canned goods.

We need your specialty baked goods-pies, povi, sweet breads, cookies, cupcakes, kolaches, etc.- for the Bake Sale and cakes for the Cake Walk. These items can be dropped off in the gym the weekend of the festival.

Thank you to everyone who came to the emergency festival meeting this past week. Several people stepped forward to form a leadership committee so we can go ahead with this year’s festival. A big thank you goes out to them!

They will now need our help to get things ready for the big day. It takes a lot of people to host the Greatest Festival in Town. So please help where you are able. Maybe you can make phone calls, maybe you can sell raffle tickets at stores, maybe you can donate items for the grocery booth, maybe you can bake for the cake walk and dessert booths, maybe you can help set things up during the evening on August 2nd, maybe you can work on festival day, maybe you can help clean up on the Monday after the festival, maybe you can pray for good weather and a big crowd. Everyone’s help is needed and welcome to make our parish’s biggest fundraiser a success. Please say yes if you get a phone call asking for your help.

The parish office is also happy to take your call to volunteer in whatever way you can.
Thank you all for helping your parish with this fundraiser! Your Pastoral Council

 

Gracias a todos los que vinieron a la reunión del Festival de emergencia la semana pasada. Varias personas avanzaron para formar un Comité de liderazgo para que podamos seguir adelante con el Festival de este año. ¡ Un gran agradecimiento para ellos! Ahora necesitarán nuestra ayuda para preparar las cosas para el gran día. Se necesita mucha gente para acoger el Mejor Festival de la Ciudad.

Así que por favor ayuda donde usted es capaz. Tal vez usted puede hacer llamadas telefónicas, tal vez usted puede vender boletos de la rifa en las tiendas, tal vez usted puede donar artículos para la cabina de comestibles, tal vez usted puede hornear para el pastel de pie y puestos de postre, tal vez usted puede ayudar a establecer las cosas durante la noche el 2 de agosto , tal vez usted puede trabajar en el día del Festival, tal vez usted puede ayudar a limpiar el lunes después del Festival, tal vez usted puede orar por el buen tiempo y una gran multitud. La ayuda de todo el mundo es necesaria y bienvenida para hacer que la recaudación de fondos más grande de nuestra parroquia sea un éxito. Por favor, diga que sí si usted recibe una llamada telefónica pidiendo su ayuda. La oficina de la parroquia también está feliz de tomar su llamada para ser voluntario en cualquier forma que pueda. ¡ Gracias a todos por ayudar a su parroquia con esta recaudación

de fondos! — Su Consejo Pastoral
