St. Andrew Bulletin -  May 21, 2017

Proclaim a joyful sound and let it be heard; proclaim to the ends of the earth:  The Lord has freed his people, alleluia.  cf. Isaiah 48:20.


DAILY MASS SCHEDULE:  11:00 a.m. Monday, Thursday, and Friday.


Today will be the last Faith Formation Classes for Children and Youth before summer break.


Once again, our children and youth will be providing delicious sausage and ham biscuits after today’s Mass as a fundraiser for our rectory project.  Please plan to stay, enjoy good food and fellowship, all for a great cause!


Following today’s Mass, the Women’s Guild will be meeting in the church.  All ladies are invited and encouraged to attend.


Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s dinner for the Asheville Vicariate a success. 


Rectory Project:  Fr. Fred has requested a meeting with the Vicar General, Monsignor West, and is waiting for a date and time when he can travel to the Diocesan offices in Charlotte.  We are very close to having the first standalone rectory in our Parish but we need everyone’s prayers and financial support.  Please give prayerful consideration and be as generous as possible.


St. Andrew’s Women’s Guild’s Annual Yard Sale will take place at St. Andrew on Saturday, June 17, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Because there is no available storage space at the church, please do not begin bringing items until dates are announced for when items can be dropped off.


Bishop Jugis will celebrate a Mass for U.S. military personnel on Monday, May 29, 11:00 a.m. at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in Charlotte.  The Mass and Rosary (to be recited at 10:30 a.m.) will be offered for all military personnel who have died and for those who are now serving.  All military personnel are invited and encouraged to come in uniform.  Photos of those who have died or who are now serving in the military will be displayed in the Cathedral.  To include your service member, preferably in uniform, please mail a color or black/white photocopy of them with their name and military rank on the back of the photocopy to Nancy Weber, Office of the Bishop, 1123 South Church Street, Charlotte, NC 28203, to be received no later than May 26, 2017.  (Please do not send original photographs as they will not be returned.)
