OLDP updates
As of this writing, (Thursday, November 8th), we do not know the final cost for the repair, clean up, replacement of items damaged, inspection, and labor costs for the different groups that worked on the problem resulting from the water leakage in the ceiling of the School hallway in front of the office. It is already over $10,000 but thankfully insurance will take care of much of that. Thank you to all who gave, and especially those who gave a little extra, in our last Building and Maintenance 2nd Collection.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the Volunteer Appreciation Party. We are sorry that it had to be on the same night as the LSU vs Alabama Game but because of the Rosary Congress, we couldn’t have it in October as we have had in the past. We won’t be hosting the Rosary Congress again so next year the Volunteer Appreciation Party should be back in its October slot. Also, thank you to all those who set up, decorated, and cleaned up connected with the event. Thank you to Gene Usner and his catering business for preparing all of the food that we enjoyed.
Thank you to everyone who came out for our annual Giving Thanks Feast, for generously sharing fellowship and food with our Church family, and for all the donations to our Outreach Food Pantry.
Thursday, November 22nd is Thanksgiving Day. On Wednesday, November 21st we will have a Vigil Mass at 4:00 p.m. Please remember to bring your Thanksgiving Bread and Wine to be blessed. Thanksgiving Day we will have a 9:00 a.m. morning Mass and we will bless your Bread and Wine at that Mass as well.
Saturday and Sunday, November 24th and 25th and December 1st and 2nd I will be selling prints of my Artwork after all Masses. 8 x 10 Prints will be $10 each and 5 x 7 Prints will be $5 each. If a print runs out there will be an order sheet for additional prints. Since we didn’t reach our goal of covering the $16,000 cost of the renovation of the Cuccia Center kitchen all proceeds of the Art Print Sale will go to the Parish toward the final $1000 we were short. Thanks for your generosity.

God bless you,
Fr. Mike
