The Knights of Columbus will once again offer Fish Fry Fridays during Lent.  The first one will be March 8th from 5:00pm-7:00pm in the Lyceum.  They will be serving baked and fried fish, French fries, coleslaw, fruit mix, dessert and a drink.  Please come and enjoy great food and fellowship!


Holy Rosary is offering a Lenten video series called Pivotal Players featuring two saints, St. Augustine and St. Benedict.  This will be a four-week series and there is no cost.  Enhance your Lenten studies by attending these informative gatherings.  We will be viewing the video, have a short social time, and discuss the video.  The gatherings will be at 7:00pm and last approximately an hour to an hour and a half.  We will start on Monday, March 18th and continue on the following Mondays, Mar. 25, Apr. 1 & 8.  You do not have to attend all the sessions.  They are independent of each other.  For more information contact Noreen Placek, 762-2830 or 762-4646.  

Dynamic Catholic is offering a free email program that is designed to help you have a life-changing Lent.  Each day you'll receive a short inspirational video that will help you find areas for growth, build better habits, and spark lasting change.  You can sign up at www.dynamiccatholic.com/bestlent.  

August 18-19 and 25-26 are our Stewardship Renewal weekends.  This year our theme is Growing our faith through prayer, service, and generosity.  Our first weekend we will have a witness talk given by Kory Koralewski who is the Stewardship and Development Director of our diocese.  Parishioners will be given a leaf to write on how they want to grow in their faith through stewardship.  Also a new and improved Here I Am booklet will be available for all parishioners to take home.  This booklet highlights most of the ministries available in the parish and the person who is the head of that ministry.  Please take time to browse this booklet to see how you can share your time and talents.

August 25th and 26th will be our survey weekend.  It was formally known as the time, talent, treasure survey.  We have changed the name to reflect our theme and more accurately explain what actions reflect stewardship.  We will compile the information gathered in survey a couple of weeks following the survey weekend.  The ministry heads will be contacted with the list of people who signed up for that particular ministry.  They are to contact any new people who are on their list and explain how they can get involved.  There are a few ministries that are on a needs basis, i.e. babysitting for programs.  If there is a need, we will contact the people who signed up for that ministry.  Also on this second weekend of Stewardship, we will display the tree with all of the leaves from the previous weekend.

We anticipate a smooth transition to this new processor and look forward to some new options such as “text-to give” with this new system. We will be communicating directly with those of you who currently utilize the Online Giving explaining these changes in detail.

 This group of young adults and chaperones from Holy Rosary recently traveled to Indianapolis, IN for the 2017 gathering of the National Catholic Youth Conference.  They were among 20,000 other youth from across the country who met to spend 3 days together learning more about their faith.  While there they participated in daily mass, reconciliation, and enjoyed many dynamic speakers, musicians and comedians.  They were supported financially by many generous people from the parish through various fundraising events over the past year.
