CONGRATULATIONS: Congratulations to the second grade CCD class on receiving the sacrament of First Holy Communion this weekend! The First Communicants are Mariann Pustejovsky, Ashlynn Ramirez, and Ryan Skidmore. To the First Communicants, may the Holy Spirit continue to work through you in growing and in sharing your Catholic faith, and may you continue to feel the “wholeness” that you feel today in receiving Jesus at every Mass.
THANK YOU: Many, many thanks to all those individuals who helped in any way with the BBQ Dinner and Raffle last Sunday. Thanks especially to Ryan Kaska and to all the other volunteers, including those who cooked and served the meal, collected prizes and ran the raffle, all the individuals who provided the wonderful desserts and last but not least, all those who came out and supported the fundraiser by purchasing the meal and raffle tickets. The winners of the raffle prizes are as follows: Necklace/Ring – Matthew Polansky; Last Supper Wall Hanging – Phil Pustejovsky; Zoo/Pizza/Ice Cream Package – Payton Pustejovsky; Walmart Gift Card – Ron Kaska; Vatican Collection Figurine – Ronnie Marak; Texas Roadhouse Gift Card/Wooden Cross – Mary Jane Sustala; 4 Dinners to Still Smokin’ BBQ – Milton Flaherty; Still Smokin’ Gift Card – Marsha Gerik; Wreath – Frances Soukup. Congratulations to all the winners.
FATHER’S DAY FLOWERS: Donations are now being accepted for Father’s Day flowers. To honor or remember a special man in your life, put your intentions, along with your donation in an envelope marked “Father’s Day Flowers” and drop in the collection basket. Donations need to be in by June 8th.
INTENTIONS NEEDED: We are in need of intentions for Sanctuary, Cross, and Cemetery Lights. Please place your intention and donation in a specially marked envelope and place in the collection basket.
PASTORAL COUNCIL NOMINATIONS: Parishioners will have the opportunity over the next two weekends to nominate individuals or themselves as a candidate to fill one of three positions on the Pastoral Council. Prayerfully consider who would lead our parish at this time and then write the name or names (there is no limit) on a slip of paper and place in the collection basket by Sunday, June 1st. Members of the Finance Council are unable to serve on both councils, therefore do not nominate Charles Beseda, Gordon Grubbs, Annette Ballew, or Lucy Pustejovsky. There are three members who have finished their terms on the Pastoral Council that are not eligible to serve for one year. They include Ronda Ballew, Kevin Beene, and Kathleen Pustejovsky. Finally, please do not nominate any current members of the Pastoral Council members: Katie Kaska, Joyce Lenart, Cheryl Schulz, Johnny Krenek, Mike Bezdek, and Frank Urbanovsky.
SECOND COLLECTION: Next week our parish will take up the Collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC). This Collection communicates the Gospel through Catholic social media activities and enriches our faith through Internet, television, radio, and print media. Half of all proceeds remain in our diocese and support local needs, so please be generous in this collection. CCC equips us to share our experience of faith, worship, and witness with the world.
LUNCHEON: The Catholic Daughters #829 from West are hosting a Taste of West Luncheon on Tuesday, June 10th. Please see the poster on the back bulletin board for more details.
