We will be collecting gifts to help St. Brigid Ladies Guild Caring Hearts with our adopted families from November 2 through December 17.  

We would like to mention again, if you happen to know of a family in our parish who might be a little down on their luck, and in need a little helping hand, please let me know. I will then let the Caring Hearts know. All names will be held in strictest confidence. This is very important, because we have no other way of knowing if someone needs help. The Caring Hearts are part of St. Brigid Ladies Guild. They help families not only with food, but also with holiday gifts and other necessities such as heat and electricity.

May 6 - Crowning of Mary

During the Month of May, a month dedicated to Mary, Catholics have long honored her by placing a crown on her image. The tradition in the United States and many other countries has been for school children to have a "May Crowning" ceremony, with a procession and flowers and a crown that one child gets to place on the statue.  We will have our May crowning at the First Communion Ceremony on May 6.
