14 Holy Helpers 150th Anniversary In October 2013, our Parish started a year long series of events celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the founding of 14 Holy Helpers Parish and School. You will find a listing of the events that have been held or planned so far on the following page … 150th Anniversary Events Calendar. While the planning has started there is still more work to be done. This is not a task for one, but for many. There are many ways to share your time and talents as we embark on this joyful celebration of who we are as a Parish. Our 150th. Anniversary Committee led by Fr. David and Co-Chairpersons, Ginny Stolarski and Tom Wojcik, need people to lead and be on the following sub-committees: liturgical, music-liturgical, bulletin, decorating, food, trip/guest speakers, advertising, tours, educational materials, promotional materials about our celebration and church. We will all work with the many Parish and School ministries and organizations as well as the Rectory staff. If you have any suggestions/recommendations about the Anniversary please submit them via:
1. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Phone to our co-chairs at Ginny 512-3221 or Tom 449-1143.Committee meetings take place regularly. Contact one of our co-chairs or watch for a notice in the bulletin. Please plan on joining us.
