    • Next weekend is 4Get Me Not weekend. The Fr. English Food Pantry has been serving 80 to 100 families per week this summer. We are especially in need of soup, pasta and rice. Please leave non-perishable food in the church vestibule.
    • Dear Msgr. Carroll, The residents, staff and volunteers of Good Counsel, sincerely thank you for inviting us back to share the mission of Good Counsel with OLM parishioners. Allowing Good Counsel to share how their support will help our mothers and babies gives the parishioners the witness to do what God asks us to do – to simply feed the hungry and clothe the naked. Your support allows our mothers to have hope for a future. It is clear your parishioners are so very grateful for the chance you have given them to support our home once again this year. We collected over $700 before even leaving the church! We are humbled by the generosity of your parish!

To give us a rough idea of the number of attendees, please sign up and put an approximate number in your party. There will be plenty of entertainment for the children and wine, beer and soda for adults. If you want, bring your own chair. Set up is on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 9am.
