Parish Newsletter June 2022

Our Bid-N-Buy auction and Major Awards raffle are back!
These two events will culminate the weekend of June 10-12.
This is a stand-alone fundraiser with the auction conducted completely online; there is no in-person event.
This remains our parish’s largest fundraiser with proceeds providing operating support for our parish and its parish service organizations. Our hope is that every parish family will participate in this event through donating auction items, bidding on items, and/or purchasing raffle tickets.

Our Bid-N-Buy silent auction goes live this Monday, June 6th, at 6:00am and closes at 8:00pm on Sunday, June 12th.

Click here to register and view the hundreds of items up for bid.
Last minute donations will be accepted only until Wednesday, June 8.

Pick up of winning items will be Tuesday, June 14th and Wednesday, June 15th from 5:00-8:00pm each day at the school entrance.
Thank you for your generosity and support!

Cookie Ministry Continues Over The Summer

Thank you for your donations to the Cookie Ministry this year. The Peanut Butter group really appreciates the support of our school families. They minister to less fortunate families at St. Francis Seraph Soup Kitchen all year, so your donations over the summer are much needed. Our Peanut Butter group puts together a lunch sack on Tuesday mornings; donations for these should be dropped off on Mondays. Your donation of cookies, brownies, rice krispie treats, etc adds a sweet treat to the lunches our peanut butter group makes for the St. Francis Seraph Soup Kitchen. Treats can be homemade or store-bought, but should be individually packaged (2 cookies per bag). They are also in need of juice boxes or pouches and prepackaged snacks, such as chips, pretzels, cheez-its, etc.

If you would like to help put together the lunches or drive them down to St. Francis Seraph, contact Kathy Hosking at 513-232-0958. Thank you for your help! 
School Playground Hours

As the weather begins to warm up, we want to remind everyone of the hours of operation for our new playground equipment. The portion of the new playground that was installed in the fall sits outside the area where our old equipment sat. Since it is outside the mulch area and is now closer to other property lines, the portion of the equipment with the slide CANNOT be used outside of the posted playground operating hours. Those hours are 8:00am-6:00pm.
