Book bags and school supplies are needed for the Holy Rosary/St. John Book Bag and School Supplies Giveaway. Please bring donations in between now and August 11th, and leave them in the back of the church. If you want to drop them off during the week, the Bakhita Center is open from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm Mondays through Thursdays. Volunteers are needed between Thursday, August 6th and Wednesday, August 13th to sort items and prepare for the School Supplies Giveaway which will be held on August 13th. For more information, talk to our Director of Religious Education, Brooke.
This next week (June 30th to July 4th), we will have our Life in the City! summer program for youth. You can still donate to support the program: $45 will cover the costs for one participant. Go to lifeinthecity.info/donate to sponsor a participant.
Also, the HRSJ young adult group is getting started again. If you are between the ages of 21 to 35, please join them after Mass this Sunday, June 29th at Scrambler Marie’s on Livingston.
This summer marks two big reasons to celebrate! Father Wagner will have his 10th Anniversary of Ordination on June 26th! The month of July is just as joyous, as Father Wagner will mark 5 years here at HRSJ.
A lunch is being planned at the end off the summer to celebrate both occasions. If you want to make a donation for the special gift we are purchasing for Father, Violet Jackson and Brooke Gaberle are collecting funds after Mass during the rest of June and July. Checks written out to HRSJ can be mailed to 648 S. Ohio Avenue, Columbus, OH 43205, with “Fr. Wagner’s Gift” in the memo.
See future bulletins for more specifics on the date and time of the celebration, and be sure to thank Father Wagner personally for all the things he does for us!
