From the Desk of Father David
Dear Friends in Christ,
Summerfest was a huge success. All the bills haven’t come in yet so we don’t know the total profit. We will let you know as soon as everything is finalized. I received numerous compliments about the warmth the volunteers exhibited, by their smiles and kind words and how well everything was working. All the credit goes to the Summerfest committee, my staff and the great volunteers.
An enormous thank you to Chris Luterek, Ginny Stolarski, Tom Wojcik, Rob Cruz, Val Zimniewicz, Roy Grabski, all their committee members, all volunteers which some worked all four days, those who sold raffle tickets, donated food, lottery tickets, theme basket items, and all those who supported the event in any way. Because of you, countless people came and had a great time. At the Noon Mass, parishioners were welcoming toward the large number of visitors. The Catholic booth distributed a great amount of material and articles. As people stopped at the table they shared their struggles and need for prayers.
Last weekend, we took up a second collection to help with the medical expenses of the retired priests of the Diocese of Buffalo. If you have already given a big thank you, if you have not, please consider giving by writing on an envelope Retried Priests Collection and drop it off at the rectory or in the collection basket. Also, please pray for all priests.
My heart overflows with gratitude for your generosity and love that you constantly shower upon our parish and those who are in need. May God abundantly bless you and your families always!
