Announcements for February 1, 2015

THE FEBRUARY ARCHANGEL is in the Narthex for you to take home with you today.

PLEASE PICK-UP YOUR GIVING STATEMENT for 2014. You don’t want to do your taxes without it!

BOOKS ‘N BRUNCH meets this morning in the Guild Room right after the late Mass.

THE FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST is on Monday. The Mass will be celebrated at 9:30 am and 6:30 pm.

BLESSING OF THROATS – In honor of St. Blasius’ Day (Feb 3), the Blessing of Throats will take place after the 6:30 pm mass on Candlemas (Feb.2) and after the 9:30 am mass on Tuesday. Please kneel at the Altar Rail if you wish a blessing “against afflictions of the throat and all other ailments.”

RESERVED PARKING – You may notice a new RESERVED parking sign along the fence in our lot, starting this week. Please do not park in this RESERVED space at any time when the RESERVED sign is posted (including Sundays and during the week). It is RESERVED for the lucky winners of last year’s Pentecost Silent Auction RESERVED Parking Prize.

SAINT CLARE’S GUILD meets this Saturday at 9:30 am in the Guild Room.

LITTLE GLASS JARS are in both arches of the Narthex. The money donated in the jars will be used by members of the Society of Mary to purchase clothes for the clothing bank at the Broadway Assistance Center.

TRANSPORTATION FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE for parishioners who, because of physical limitations, would not otherwise be able to attend church services. A per person cap of $300 has been set in order that the limited funds may be made available to a larger number of parishioners in need. If you or a parishioner you know could benefit from this assistance, please call the office, 303-777-5181.

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE DINNER: The Society of Mary is again preparing and serving dinner for the Denver Ronald McDonald House on Saturday, March 7. Soon there will be a sign up sheet in the Narthex for those who wish to help on March 7. Everyone is invited to volunteer. In addition there is a large plastic jar in the Narthex for those who wish to donate money toward the purchase of the food.
