WELCOME TO ABBOTT: Our parish will celebrate the new assignment of Father Joe Keating by welcoming him with a pot luck supper on Sunday, August 7th at 6:00 p.m. The parish will provide fried chicken, rolls, and tea. Parishioners who can attend are asked to provide a vegetable, salad, or dessert.  See you there.

SPECIAL COLLECTION:  The annual Priest Care Fund Special Collection will be taken up this weekend. This helps support the expenses of medical and long-term care for our retired and infirmed priests. Please give generously.

COUNCIL MEETINGS: The Finance Council  will meet on Monday, August 8th  at 6:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall.  The Pastoral Council will meet immediately after, at 7:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall.

RECONCILIATION: Please note the new Sacrament of Reconciliation times for our parish. Saturday – 5:00 – 5:45 p.m. and Sunday 7:00 – 7:45 a.m.

MOVIE NIGHT: On Friday, August 12th, our parish will be showing the expository documentary “The Incredible Discovery of Noah’s Ark”, at 7:30 p.m. in the parish hall. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Proceeds will benefit our CCD program. The host Darren McGavin interviews eyewitnesses to the Ark who climbed Mount Ararat (some of it re-enacted on the mountain) and experts in the subject. The film not only details how the ark would have been constructed, but also recent evidence that would seem to prove where it is located. This was originally broadcast by CBS on television in February 1993. The film runs 90 minutes and has edited for private viewing.

SPAGHETTI DINNER: Our Annual Spaghetti Dinner will be held on Sunday, August 28th. The meal consisting of spaghetti and meat sauce, salad bar, garlic bread, dessert and drink is from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00. Adult plates and plates to go are $8.00, and $6.00 for children under 12. Please invite your family and friends to come out and enjoy a delicious meal and fellowship. Parishioners whose last names begin with N – Z are asked to please bring a dessert to be served with the meal.  If anyone wishes to make a cash donation towards the meat or other ingredients, please put it in a specially marked envelope and place it in the collection basket.
