June 9 we begin “ordinary” (numbered) time in our Catholic calendar, the 10th week. Some of the “extras” of the Easter Season are back on the shelf. School and CCRE and catechumenate sessions are “out” for the summer. Our June/July parish calendars are certainly less crowded. We expect that summertime will be more leisurely, but our schedules quickly fill up with outdoor activities, lawn-mowing, sports, vacations, long weekends away, and more. Enjoy yourselves. Keep in mind some coming events: • June 28-29 we will host “congratulations & thank you” events for Marcy Anderson, our parish Music Director, who is retiring. These informal events will be in the Collison Hall: ice cream following the Vigil Mass, and coffee & rolls following the Sunday Masses. Bring a Thank You card for Marcy and come to enjoy some refreshments. Marcy will be mingling around in the hall. • Our Garage Sale for Haiti August 8-9. This is a great project and a large benefit to our sister-parish, Notre Dame de Lourdes, in Laborde, Haiti. Plan to volunteer to help this year. This project requires lots of volunteers to set-up, staff the sale, and clean-up afterwards. Continue saving items that you can donate to this sale. •August 10, a Sunday and the Feast of Saint Lawrence, Deacon & Martyr. We will have a parish potluck dinner Saturday August 9 to celebrate.
