After much discussion and prayer, sadly we are postponing the best day of summer until next year. This was not an easy decision to make but one that we felt was necessary given the planning and preparation that needs to take place along with the uncertainty of things.
You may or may not know that the Parish Festival plays a significant part in our parish budget, so we will still be holding the raffle portion of the festival. There are great prizes to win – a cash grand prize of $5000, $1000 second prize, a one-week stay at Ball Club Lake, and more gift certificates, products and additional cash prizes. Chances are $5 each and are being distributed in the Gathering Space. You will also be able to buy quilt raffle tickets for the chance to buy a beautiful handmade quilt. We will keep you posted on plans for the raffle drawing on Sunday, August 23, 2020 at 5pm.
We’ve also had a parishioner issue a challenge…”I challenge all those who worked during this challenging time to donate $150 to the parish festival. This will help with the parish budget that relies on the income from the Parish Festival.” Any additional donation you can make beyond buying raffle tickets would be greatly appreciated and help our budget stay healthy.
We wish you many great days this summer and look forward to gathering again for the best day of summer next year.
