PASTOR'S CORNER



Rev. Mark T Watkins
     Festival: Please mark your calendar for the St. Lawrence Parish Festival. Our dates this year are Saturday, July 8 from 5pm-11pm & Sunday, July 9 from 5pm-10pm. The Festival Committee is still in need of booth chairs for this year’s festival. We need workers for the following booths: Kiddieland, $25 for $1, meat certificates and flowers. If you are able to chair a booth with your friends and family, please call the rectory at 921-0328 and leave your name.
     We will have live entertainment each night. Saturday night is Gen X and Sunday night Bluefish. We will have lots of delicious food and good beer. I hope you’ll plan now to come. If you have any questions about the festival, or need more tickets please call the rectory at 921-0328 between 9:00am and 3:30pm or email at festival@stlawrenceparish.org.

     Major Award Raffle Tickets: The next Early Bird drawing will be on Father’s Day, June 18. So, please keep up the good work of buying and selling tickets. The Major Award is the largest source of income for the festival. Its success is vital. Thank you.

     Seminarian: We welcome Jonathan Jergens, a seminarian for our Archdiocese. He just finished his first year of formation, and will begin 2nd Pre-Theology this coming fall, the second of seven years of formation prior to ordination to the Priesthood. His home parish is Our Lady of Good Hope in Miamisburg, Ohio. He is 32 years old. Prior to entering seminary, he was in the United States Army for 13 years. He was a Sergeant First Class, and deployed six times to Iraq and Afghanistan in support of combat operations. He was also a Paratrooper and Jumpmaster and worked on communications for the Army, operating servers and computers, as well as maintaining and securing Army networks.   
     John will be helping us here until July 10, then travel to Honduras for a month and return to St. Lawrence for a few weeks in August. I am sure John will feel very much at home at St. Lawrence.

FESTIVAL

  • Booth Sponsorships: Consider investing in a booth sponsorship. Your name or the name of your business or in memory of a loved one will be on display the entire festival weekend. The booth sponsorships cover the rising cost of the bands, booth rentals, printing, stage rental and various other expenses that the parish incurs preparing for the festival.
