PASTOR'S CORNER

Fr. Mark T. Watkins
Solemnity of the Assumption:  Monday, August 15 is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  It is not a Holy Day of Obligation.  The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary will be celebrated at the regularly scheduled 8:30 am Mass on Monday morning.

Wednesday, August 10 is the feast of our patron saint, St. Lawrence.

Festival News:  Just wanted to give you an update on what the festival made this year.  We grossed $53,186.58 and netted $31,327.38 which is 59% of the gross.  I think the festival was a great success.  Thank you for all your support!
