Dear Rosary Guild Members,
We are happy to welcome you all to the Rosary Guild. The Officers who will be serving you for the new year are:
- Rosemary Mineau – President
- Pat Keyes – Vice President
- Marge Mineau – Secretary
- Jo Keegan – Treasurer
Our parish family serves the needs of many, from the elderly to the very young. The Parish Thrift Shop, (open every Wednesday and Saturday) generates a great deal of income. As a result of this income, we are able to make many donations to our parish family. This year, our Thrift Shop is experiencing a shortage of workers. My goal is to increase the number of Thrift Shop volunteers during the year. Please help in any way you can. Donating your time one or two days per month would greatly help the shop remain successful and enable us to continue to make donations to our parish family. We are very thankful to Angie Finn, Director of the Thrift Shop, and all the dedicated workers for their commitment to its success. The donations generated by the Thrift Shop are listed in this mailing.
We will continue to recite the Rosary after noon Mass on the first Tuesday of each month. The Rosary Guild members traditionally assist with cleaning and decorating the church for Christmas and Easter. We also attend wakes and funerals of our departed members, work at the parish family Festival, send cards to our homebound and nursing home parishioners, donate to the food pantry, and serve at other special events of the parish. Blessed Sacrament Parish is a true parish family because of your participation. Again, please consider helping in any way you can.
This year the Annual Baby Shower (traditionally held in March) will be moved and combined with our Spring Banquet. Easter occurs early this year so it necessitates changing our March meeting and activities. The Guild officers hope this change is not inconvenient for our members.
I look forward to serving the Rosary Guild as President this year. I am confident our efforts will continue to serve the parish in a positive way.
