ANGEL SIP AND PAINT
Join us as we celebrate the Feast of Saint Michael with a Sip and Paint adventure on Wednesday, September 28 at 6:30pm in the Family Life Center. We will paint angels and learn more about the symbols and prayers associated with Saint Michael. There is a $10 fee to cover supplies and we are asking everyone to bring a snack to share.
Please call the Parish Office to make a reservation by Monday, September 26 so we can have enough supplies for everyone.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS FREE PANCAKE BREAKFAST

BLESSING OF PETS
The annual Blessing of Pets will take place Tuesday, October 4, at 6:00pm in the courtyard by the Saint Michael Statue.
YOUNG AT HEART SOCIETY
Our first Young at Heart gathering will be on Monday, October 11. We will begin with Mass, celebrating the Memorial of Saint John XXIII at 11:30am, then move to the Parish Hall for a light luncheon and a presentation on the unique writings of Blessed John Paul I. In a book entitled, Illustrissimi, Then Cardinal Albino Luciani wrote brief letters to people of history, ranging from Charles Dickens and Mark Twain to Pinocchio. We will look at the life of this newly proclaimed Blessed and some of his more interesting observations. The day will wrap up by 1:30pm. The cost of the luncheon is $5.00. Please RSVP to the office by October 4.
ATTENTION ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Once the game is over and the stands are empty...
Join us again this year for our “After the Game” nights in the Family Life Center.
Mark your calendar for Friday night, October 21 when we will have an indoor Inflatable Obstacle Course Race. You won’t want to miss out on that. Make sure to tell your friends – you don’t want to miss out on all the fun!
As soon as you mention a “society” or “guild” or “committee”, people get nervous. They worry about being asked to serve as an officer, to constantly make phone calls, to host events, and so on. This fear or anxiety keeps a good number of people from joining. And yet, much interest has been shown for an opportunity for many of our parishioners to get together. And so, beginning this Fall, we will be establishing a Young at Heart Society. By calling it a Young at Heart Society, and not a senior’s group, you can decide for yourself if you fit. And without any anxiety feel free to call others and invite them to participate as well. More information about the speakers will appear in future bulletins. Hopefully this will be a great opportunity for people to come together and enjoy each other’s company.

RECITATION OF THE ROSARY
A group gathers in the pews near the Blessed Mother’s altar for an oral recitation of the rosary the 1st Saturday of the month at 3:45pm. Please call Mary Ann Camardo (330-2286-3432) for more information.

OPEN GYM FOR WALKING
The Family Life Center Gymnasium is now open four days a week: Monday through Thursday, from 9:30 to 11:30am. Parishioners are invited to come and walk for healthy exercise and companionship. Walkers are requested to stop in the open meeting room across from the restrooms to store their coats and change from outdoor boots and shoes to indoor athletic or walking shoes—required to protect the FLC floor. Now there is no need to go to the mall to exercise. This is a great opportunity right here at home to walk your way to a healthy lifestyle. Please enter through the side door.
THURSDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY GROUP:
We start each session in the Parish Hall after the Thursday morning Mass (at approximately 8:30am) with a review and a discussion of the following Sunday’s readings. At approximately 9:15, we transition to our study of the Bible. We welcome any who want to join our group.
SCHEDULING MEETINGS AND EVENTS
If you would like to schedule a meeting or event for any of our parish organizations, or schedule a rental anywhere in the Church, Parish Hall, or Family Life Center, please contact Audrey Geskey (330-533-3181).
