The month of May is a beautiful time when we remember the Blessed Virgin Mary and all of our mothers. May Crowning will take place on May 6th and it will be coordinated this year by our parish Legion of Mary. Special Mother’s Day Mass of Remembrance will be offered for our living and deceased mothers on May 13th and throughout the year. Special Mother’s Day Remembrance Memorial envelopes can be found at all entrances to the church and at the parish office. All returned envelopes will be placed by the altar and all mothers listed will be included in special Masses and prayers in the month of May.
Catholic Charities Drive continues this season. If you have already contributed to Catholic Charities this year, thank you. If not yet, I encourage you to do so soon. Please add “0507 Bl. Sacr. Tonawanda” on a check to assure our parish gets the credit. Thank you for your generous support to help us reach the parish goal. We are at about 65% now.
About 180 families have already signed up for the Parish Photo Directory. There are still openings left for May. Please consider to be part of this historical booklet. More information is on page 5 of the bulletin.
I invite all to join our parish Garden Ministry to help in the Spring Parish Grounds Clean Up next Saturday, May 12th at 10:30 am. Please bring proper shoes and attire, gloves, rakes, small buckets. Plastic garbage bags will be provided. Meet in front of Father Cotter Hall.
