Parish News

Our first St. Patrick’s Day dinner was held on Saturday, March 15th. We had a sellout crowd who enjoyed the delicious traditional fare of corned beef and cabbage with apple cobbler for dessert. While waiting for dinner to be served, many quests got into the 50/50 raffle, Chinese auction and silent auction and enjoyed a glass of wine or green beer.

Shrove comes from an archaic English word “shriven” meaning “to confess one’s sins” and receiving absolution. This day is also known Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday” which is derived from two French words, Mardi (Tuesday) and Gras (Fat). Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, the day Lent begins. Lent is a season of penitence and reflection. Lent is a time we become more austere and in the early days that meant giving up luxury items like fat, milk and eggs—all the ingredients used in pancakes. And so to eliminate them the villages would make pancakes on this day and have a feast.

Traffic was a little slow at our March 8th Market Day, even though we posted more signs in parishioners yards and advertised in several papers and online. This event has been a good fundraiser in the past and we are hoping for better results in April and May. Did you know we serve breakfast AND lunch and that this money goes directly to the church? Did you know that we have a bake sale every month and this money also goes directly to the church. We would love to see more members come out and support both these efforts.

As many of you may know, the ECW held its annual Fashion Show on Saturday February 18th. The show was a huge success and the fundraiser profited over $1500.00. The ECW would like to thank all of the models who offered their time and purchases for this occasion. With the theme of Thrift Shop attire, the models purchased clothing from local vendors and walked the runway with enthusiasm. The men were the hit of the catwalk; strutting their stuff for the ladies in attendance. An honorable mention must be made to Mr. Don Scott who did an outstanding job in presenting his wardrobe with flare.
