——————————————————————————————Saints in the Classroom: Mrs. McSparin's 6th-graders have
been following in the footsteps of the saints this month with
Random Acts of Kindness. They researched some ideas on
their iPads, wrote down some that they could perform, and
then carried them out. A few of their kind acts included the
following: buying a treat for a brother or sister, leaving inspirational notes around the junior high building, giving a baked
good to a neighbor, and leaving change in a vending machine
for someone to find.
——————————————————————————————-All Girls Scouts are invited to celebrate Girl Scout Sunday at
the 11:00am mass on Sunday, March 8, 2015 at St. Dominic.
Pews will be reserved up front for the girl scouts.
Note to Parishioners: We just had two big mailings go
out. The envelopes were in the back of Church for pick up.
With 917 families, we had to mail out the following since
the envelopes were not picked up in Church.
Golden Egg:
Stamps were placed on 368 envelopes
Chicken Dinner:
Stamps were placed on 579 envelopes
Total money spent on stamps
368x.49 =$180.32
579x.49 =$283.71
In the past we were able to mail this out for approximately
$200.00 using bulk mail. The Postal Office now requires any
envelope that contains raffle tickets have a stamp on it.
Therefore, every time we have a mailing that has raffle tickets (which is most of the time) we have to stamp every
envelope to be mailed. As you can see, $464.00 is a lot of
money that reduces the profit of fundraisers. In the future,
please pick up these envelopes in Church so we can save
the postage.
Begin Again – Lent is a time of cleansing, of purifying –
not in a painful sense, but in a refreshing way. The Sacrament of Reconciliation washes away the ―dirt‖ of our sin
and opens our hearts to encounter God’s mercy so we can
start with a ―clean slate.‖ Once you are touched by God’s
mercy, you understand how he is gentle and loving and
always calling you closer to him. Learn, Act, Connect,
Pray: Participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation this
Lent. Pray all people may understand that God’s mercy is
