“THANKS MOM FOR LIFE” MOTHER’S DAY CORSAGES - The English Altar and Rosary Guild will again sponsor “Thanks Mom For Life” corsages for Mother’s Day.  Order your Mom, grandmother, aunt or favorite lady a corsage.  Advance sales will be April 29 & 30 and May 6 & 7.  Buy a ticket which you exchange on Mother’s Day weekend (May 13 & 14) for a lovely orchid corsage with attached pro-life message.  Donation is $5.00.  Tickets will be available at each church entrance.  Proceeds go to area pro-life activities.




As you can see, the scaffolding is down on the North aisle which means the painting and redecorating of this section of the church is finished.  Some broken stained glass sections were also repaired on this aisle.  As of today $35,372 has been collected on the goal of $80,000.  Once our goal is achieved, we will be able to move onto the South side aisle.


This past week an additional section of marble was added to the front steps of the main altar.  This will make it easier for the priest to incense the gifts and the altar at the offertory without risking a fall or twisted ankle!  This was less costly and presented less risk of breakage than moving the altar back.  The work was performed by Twin City Marble and Tile Company, St. Paul.


In the near future the insides of the confessionals will be redone.  The old soundproofing was done with shag carpeting which over time has not only become outdated in appearance, but our climate changes make the inside of the confessionals smell musty, especially in the summer.
