First Friday Kitchen for Youth
First Friday is September 5th. Our kitchen will be open from 4-6:30 pm for eat-in or take-out. It is best to pre-order to guarantee an item, but not necessary. Call Parish Office to place an order (678-5513), but after 2:30 pm on Friday, September 5, please call kitchen (678-5139). This month in addition to our usual items (fried and baked fish, clam chowder, etc) we will also have Seafood linguini, Baked Stuffed Shrimp, Chicken Pie, and Grilled Steak Tips (this is instead of flank steak).

Faith Formation Registration: It is now time to register for Faith Formation. All grades will follow the same registration process. The Faith Formation Registration Form can be filled out on-line. In fact we prefer that you fill it out on line because the information will not have to be retyped. If you do not have access to the internet there is a printed copy of the form on the two bulletin boards. Click here for the on-line form. Filling out the form is only the first step to register. You also need to hand in the Registration fee which you can now do on-line. This can also be done by coming to the rectory during business hours (Monday-Friday from 8:30am-3pm.) You can also give the registration fee to Fr Fred before or after Mass. Finally, you can put it into an envelope with "Registration fee" written on the outside along with the names of children being registered, and place it into the basket. Registration fee is $30.00 for 1 child, $45.00 for 2 children, and $60.00 for families of 3 children and more. If a parent can not afford the registration fee see, Fr. Fred.
