· Sat, Apr. 28 – 3:30pm-5:00pm – LONG-RANGE PLANNING MEETING – It’s been a little while since the last meeting and a special plea goes to all the committee members to book this time into your schedule and come to this meeting. Your participation is important and much needed.

· Sun, Apr. 29 – SPRING PARISH/GENERAL ASSEMBLY – As already specified, the List of Eligible Voters included in the mailing that just went out was current as of 3-25-2012 (last Sunday of 1st Quarter); thus, even Apr. 1st stewardship donations were not included. If your name is not on the list, DO NOT WORRY, the list is only a reminder to us all to be sure that we have no prior year balances and that we are pledged and 25% paid for the current year (according to Parish Bylaws). There still is another 20 days until the Parish Assembly. We didn’t want to have to worry about this mailing during the busy time of Holy Week. Updated list will be posted.
