Viking Danube River Cruise

What a way to start the New Year! Raise your wine glasses and think about joining uCruise Ships on July 14, 2019, for an 8–day cruise (no hotel hopping) to Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. Our previous trips have been very successful with making new friends, enjoying lots of laughter, plenty of partying and whatever else comes along with an awesome group of people. Details about this trip will be available at a meeting on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at 5 p.m., in Saint Pat's Hall. Virginia Ricablanca and Father Dennis will be your hosts. If you have questions pertaining to this meeting only, please do not hesitate to contact Betty Fitzgerald at 352-729-4615.

Coupons for Food ~ Baby Products ~ Pet Products

Coupons are needed! Food, baby products and pet products coupons – we use these three types of coupons to support those serving in the military.

Altar Servers Needed

Altar ServersAltar Servers are needed for all Masses – we welcome students in grade 3 and up who have made their First Communion to become a server.  Three short training sessions take place before being scheduled and new servers are always paired with veterans while they are learning.  Anyone who is interested should contact the Director of Religious Education at kschnelldirector@gmail.com or see any priest or deacon after Mass.

Greeters

Greeters Anyone wishing to greet fellow parishioners and visitors as they enter the church, or hand out bulletins as they exit after Mass are encouraged to do so. Responding in a special way to Pope Francis' visit to the United States, we especially encourage families to take part in this activity as a group. There's
no commitment, and you never know how holding the door for someone or a kind "good morning" affects someone. Anyone who would like more information may call Pat Regan at 732-727-2768.
