We wanted to give you an update on our activities and let you know what to expect in the future. By the time you read this we will have had a Saturday night enchilada dinner before bingo. Hopefully we will raise a couple hundred dollars. On June 18th we will be having a spaghetti dinner prepared by who we call our resident Italian, Joanne Lewis. The last one she prepared was amazingly good so I hope you don't miss this one. We will also be preparing root beer floats after an 11am Mass. A date hasn't been set yet but will be announced soon. Give a round of applause to Jan Lambert as she raised $ 250 recently. Mark's Auto is joining our team and through the month of May will be donating $ 5 for every oil change he does. This would be a great time to have your oil changed and help fight against cancer. For our team members, we will be having a team meeting Sunday, May 29th, after the 11am Mass at OLV. There is still time to join the team, just let me know. Your team captain, Terri Nesmith.

PLEDGE GOAL FOR OUR FAMILY RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR
We are only at 1/3 of our pledge goal. Help us keep this position for the coming year!

This position has grown to now include the responsibilities of bulletin editor, Liturgy Committee chairman, Adult Education classes, RCIA, as well as assist in marriage preparation. We committed to this ministry initially for at least 5 years. The first fiscal quarter revenues for the Educational Coordinator, however, fell short of our budgeted goal.

JOB OPENINGS IN CATHOLIC SCHOOLS

We want to keep you fully informed of our financial needs in managing the Parish and its ministries. Thank you for your generosity! We ended the first fiscal quarter with weekly offertory collections ahead of budget. However, in the Stewardship pledge campaign we have only received a very small percentage of pledges. We need our parish to respond to this important need.
WHY THE STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE IS SO IMPORTANT
Consider the following example. Your employer tells you that he is going to pay you, but he doesn?t tell you how much. So you work each week and at the end of the week he hands you a pay check. There was no way you could budget for your family needs. Well, that is how a parish operates when it doesn't know what it might receive from week to week. By making an annual Stewardship pledge, it enables the parish to have a better idea of the expected revenues for the coming year. Without a pledge, we only guess!
LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS
LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS, EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS, LECTORS AND ALTAR SERVERS. PLEASE CONTACT THE PARISH OFFICE 503-738-6161 OR CHRIS ROSE 503-738-3221
