On Saturday, August 15, we are going to have a Parish BBQ. The meal will be your choice of a BBQ sampler (Beef Brisket, Ribs, & Pulled Pork) or a grilled half chicken (wings, thighs, and breast). We will begin with a garden salad instead of a soup. For sides we will have corn-bread, french fries, coleslaw, homemade baked beans, and corn on the cob. Dessert will be homemade ice cream or watermelon. Tickets for the BBQ sampler are $15.00, and for the grilled chicken $13.00. Tickets are on sale after Mass or in the rectory during business hours.
Mass Time Survey
We are considering making some slight changes to the Sunday Morning Mass schedule to eliminate the overlap between the time of Mass and the time of class. In this way Fr. Fred could do all the Masses on Sunday morning, and also be present to Faith Formation Classes. The changes would be to move the start of the Portuguese Mass 15 minutes early to 8:45am. Also the 10:30am Mass would become an 11:00am Mass. The time of Faith Formation classes would also have to change to 9:45am. While these changes are slight nonetheless we want to survey of Parishioners before a final decision is made. A printed survey is found on the two bulletin boards. We also have an on-line survey through Polldaddy. Click here for the on-line survey. We are only looking for Parishioners to take the survey. Also we are not just looking for your opinion, but even more for your reasons.

There are hard copies of a registrtion form in the Church, or you can register on-line which is far better. Click here for the on-line form.
