Attention Graduates: Please contact Kevin McNicholas, 535-5494 with Holy Ghost to get signed up with Newman Connection’s High School Outreach Program. The Program keeps high school and college students connected to Catholic campus ministry. The Campus Minister can then reach out to the student prior their arrival on campus. This effort has shown great success. We are keeping students connected to the Catholic Church using technology & social media. Census Forms: Holy Ghost and St. Mary’s goal is to have a census form on each family of the parish. So far, census response has been good. St. Mary’s has an 80% return, Holy Ghost 65% return. Special attention is placed on the 8 census forms from families with kids in our school still out. Not having a form turned in will result in “non-parishioner” status with the coming school year. FYI All parish families with children in our school receive envelopes. Please make every effort to get a form turned in. This office will be conducting phone calls and resending forms through mailing, to achieve a 100% response to the census. Please call this office if you need a form or need to make changes. Thank you so much for your cooperation! 498-3416 Upcoming Events: April: Parish Census Calls April 11, 6pm-11pm: Catholic Charities dinner/dance April 11 5p-8p: Child Cancer Pasta Party April 14 7:00pm: Altar Society Meeting April 15, 11am-1pm: St. Ambrose Salad Luncheon April 16, 6pm-7pm: SF/HG Pre-School Registration April 17-19: Singles REFLECT, King’s House April 18: Marquette at Busch Stadium April 24-26: Marriage Encounter April 25, 9am-12pm: E-cycling, Sacred Heart, Virden April 26: Father Hembrow’s Birthday April 26, 2pm: Holy Ghost 1st Communion Christ is Risen!
