2021 CHURCH LOTTERY CALENDARS

LOTTERY CALENDARS – As we have shared with you in earlier announcements, the Lottery Calendars are our only Fund-Raising event this year.  We are asking each family to sell five calendars at $25.00 each,  if you are able. We have exempted our Senior parishioners, but they can still purchase a calendar if they so desire. Calendars will be sold in the Vestibule of our Church. If anyone would like to sell more than the five given, please pursue this in the vestibule of the Church.  There are extras there and we will appreciate the help.
