Summerfest was a Success
From the Desk of Father David
Dear Friends in Christ,
God has blest our Parish and Summerfest through the Fourteen Holy Helpers. Summerfest was a great success at all levels! All the bills haven’t come in yet so we don’t know the total profit. We will let you know as soon as everything is finalized. I received numerous compliments about the warmth the volunteers exhibited, by their smiles and kind words and how well everything came together. All the credit goes to the Summerfest committee, my staff and the great volunteers.
An enormous thank you to the core team: Chris Luterek, Ginny Stolarski, Tom Wojcik, Rob Cruz, Val Zimniewicz, Roy Grabski, and all their committee members. A special thank you to all volunteers, especially those who worked all four days and Fourteen Holy Helpers Staff. A thank you to all those who donated items and all those who supported the event in any way. Countless people had a great time because of you. At the noon mass, parishioners were welcoming toward the large number of visitors. The Catholic booth distributed a large amount of material and articles.
Last weekend, we took up a second collection to help with the medical expenses of the retired priests of the Diocese of Buffalo. If you have already given a big thank you, if you have not, please consider giving by writing on an envelope Retried Priests Collection and drop it off at the rectory or in the collection basket. Also please pray for all priests.
My heart overflows with gratitude for your generosity and love that you constantly shower upon our parish and those who are in need. May God abundantly bless you and your families always!
