  • Thank you

    Thank You Very Much!
     from Fr. Michael
         This weekend we have come to the conclusion of our Intergenerational Community Week, a week that began
    with our Feast of Corpus Christi
    celebrations last Saturday. 
    I want to say a big thank you to all
    those who made the events
    of this last week possible.
         First, I wish to thank, with all my heart,
    the hard work of our committee members who have been planning this event
    since last August!
    They met as a group each month, and
    also held smaller group meetings on a regular basis. Each one gave literally hundreds of hours of their time in
    planning and arranging the various events
    of these days, whether it was arranging
    for sponsors and vendors; organizing the music, entertainment and games; planning for the procession and Mass; organizing
    the volunteers; planning out the logistical needs for the event; and organizing the sale of raffle tickets and Silent Auction.    
          I also wish to thank our sponsors, particularly those who are members of the parish, for their generosity. A big thank you also for all those who donated items for the Silent Auction as well, and the various businesses who donated food and drinks.
         An incredible statistic of our Corpus Christi celebration was the 200+ volunteers who served both on June 17th and the
    days leading up to this week as well
    as from June 20th  - 23rd.
         Speaking of June 20th – 23rd, I wish to
    thank the parishioners who volunteered
    to help out with presentations and
    organizing the lunches and refreshments.
         A final thank you goes to the countless parishioners who attended the various events of the Intergenerational Community Week.  Your presence was deeply appreciated by myself and all the
    committee members and volunteers.
         To all of you, God bless you !
    Fr. Michael
