PASTOR'S CORNER
     May Crowning:  St. Lawrence students will be having May Crowning on Wednesday, May 6 at 7pm.  May Crowning is a wonderful way to honor our Blessed Mother.  She is our model of humility and faithfulness.  I invite you to join the children in honoring our Blessed Mother.   

     Major Award Raffle Tickets:  The first Early Bird drawing will be on Mother’s Day, May 10.  So, please turn in your sold tickets.   

     First Holy Communion:  Congratulations to our second graders who received their First Holy communion last Sunday.  Please keep them in your prayers.            

     One Faith, One Hope, One Love Campaign: So that we can continue to be successful and help Archbishop Schnurr meet the needs of our Archdiocese, everyone in the parish should have by now have received information regarding the Capital Campaign.  The next step is to reach out to you by phone.  So, our volunteer committee will do a Phone-a-thon on the next two Tuesdays.  If you received in the mail from the Archbishop a pledge card and return envelope you can fill it out and place it in the collection.  Thank you for whatever you are able to do in helping meet our goal here at St. Lawrence. 
     Also, I still need a few volunteers to help with the Phone-a-thon.  If you are able and willing, please come to Assembly Hall 2 (the school’s Music Room) on Tuesday, April 28 and May 5 at 7:00pm.  Bring your cell phones. 


Parish/School Announcements

  • Summer Festival News:  Please mark your calendar for the St. Lawrence Parish Festival.  Remember, we have streamlined the festival this year to Saturday and Sunday, July 11 & 12.  We will have entertainment on both days: Saturday - Bluefish and Sunday - Saffire Express, both popular Westside bands.  Chicken dinners will be served on Saturday and Sunday from 5pm-7pm.  We will have lots of other delicious food and good beer.  I think the festival is really going to be great this year.  So, I hope you’ll plan now to come.  Parishioners should have received your festival chances in the mail.  Please do your best to sell your $50 and help us to make this the best festival ever!  If you have any questions about the festival, or need more tickets please call the rectory at 921-0328 between 9:00am and 4:00pm or e-mail at festival@stlawrenceparish.org.  If you would like to help at the festival, please call Theresa Murphy at 921-0266 or e-mail at festival@stlawrenceparish.org.

  • Rosary Rally:  Important!  The Rosary Rally will be on Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 1:30pm.  Plan to celebrate the 10th annual Rosary Rally held at Elder High School’s football stadium (the Pit).  The celebration starts with a procession and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament as the center of our devotion.  The recitation of the Holy Rosary, together with worship songs and prayers, along with a 60-foot helium filled balloon rosary make this gathering a memorable event.  Annually nearly two thousand attendees come to this prayerful event.  Your presence makes a difference and blesses all those attending.  Local priests in our Archdiocese will lead us in prayer.  In case of bad weather, we will move indoors to the basketball gymnasium.  Any questions call Guy Langenbrunner at 763-0613 or Roger Glandorf at 251-7729.  May God bless you!

  • Kroger Community Rewards:  Help the St. Lawrence PTO.  You can register your Kroger Plus Card.  Registration must be updated every year between April 1 and April 30 for the St. Lawrence PTO to continue receiving benefits.  Link your Kroger Plus Card to the St. Lawrence PTO and each time your card is swiped Kroger will donate a percentage of your total sales to us with no loss of your reward points.  Simply go to www.kroger.com/communityrewards and enroll.  Our ID # is 82070.  Enrollment does have to be handled online.  Thank you! 

  • Monthly Holy Hour for Vocations – with prayerful music is held every second Thursday of the month at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in Norwood, OH at 8:00pm. This event is sponsored by the Archdiocesan Office of Vocations and Children of Mary.  For more information please e-mail at dschmitmeyer@catholiccincinnati.org or childrenofmary@juno.com.
