Christmas Eve Help

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

Brothers,

The parish is requesting the Knight’s assistance with parking this Christmas Eve. They are looking for 8 volunteers for each Mass – 4 pm, 6 pm and midnight. The Wake Forest Police will be handling the street traffic and we will be responsible for the flow inside the parking lots.

Let’s continue to show Father Bill John that we are here to support him and our parish.

If you are able to help out, please respond to this email and let me know what time you’re available. You should plan to arrive about an hour before the start of Mass.

Thank you and God bless,

SK, Mike Potochnik, GK

Hi Anthony,

I saw this in the Town of Wake Forest email and thought I would share with
you in case you were planning on sending out any upcoming events for the
week:

*Food Drive – Saturday, Dec. 1,*
A special part of this year’s Downtown Holiday Open House will also be a
food drive to benefit the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry. Wake Forest
Downtown, Inc., will be collecting non-perishable food items to help feed
hungry people in our community.

The Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry collection truck will be parked along the
200 block of South White Street throughout the day. Area residents are
invited to drop off non-perishable foods, including canned meats (tuna,
chicken), canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, jelly, and cereal.
Please note: no glass containers can be accepted.

2019 NC State Raffle Fund Raiser

Saturday, November 24th, 2018

Worthy Brothers,
By now you should have been contacted by one of the members of our raffle ticket team who are asking members to take tickets to sell or to purchase.  A big thank you to Dave Rogers, Matt Gautier, Steve Wehner and Anthony Nacional for stepping up to help out with this year’s event!
So far the response has been light, so please take some time to respond to your brothers who are working hard to make this fundraiser a success.  If you don’t recall receiving an email please let me or Dave Rogers and we will have someone get in touch with you ASAP. 
Remember, half of the proceeds stay with our council and money raised allows us to continue to do good works within our parish and the community.  
Vivat Jesus!

Dear Mike,
Could you please pass a prayer request on to the council?
A cousin of mine had her baby this morning and, because of complications in the birth, she is fighting for her life.
