ATTENTION ALL PARISHIONERS: This weekend we begin our new fundraiser campaign. We are selling raffle tickets with the grand prize being $1,000.00, 2nd & 3rd place are $500.00 each. We are asking each family to sell 5 books ($25.00) of tickets. Tickets can be picked up in the vestibule. We are doing this fundraiser to raise money for numerous projects needing to be done at the church. We do not know at this time if we will be making pirohy & Kolachi this winter, therefore; we are substituting this fundraiser. If you would like more tickets to sell/buy, because the seller of the winning tickets receives $25.00, please contact Fr. Michael, Paula Slemons or Michelle Straub. Please write your name on the back of the tickets you sold. The drawing will be held in October. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
