19th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
August 9, 2020
PAPER PRODUCTS & CANNED ITEMS
Hopefully we can improve with our donations of paper products and non-perishable food products for the Wilton-Durant Food Pantry. We have three Sundays left so let’s have every parishioner participate! As in previous years, we will take up a special monetary collection for the support of the Food Pantry on August 30, the last Sunday of the month. Let’s fill our Gathering Area with items! St. Mary’s always comes through when asked.
LAY MINISTRY SCHEDULE
Is available in the Gathering Area and on our Website. The schedule begins August 16 and continues through September 27. Thanks to Otto Geering for putting together the schedule.
SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION
Father is available to hear Confessions before and after Mass on Sunday.
A FEW REMINDERS
Please wear a mask and bring your own hand sanitizer when you come to Mass. If you are unable to come on Sundays because of extreme health or age concerns, please watch a broadcast of the Mass on TV and we ask that you mail your contribution to St. Mary’s. Collection baskets for those who are coming to Mass are by the Holy Water Font and on a table in the Parish Hall. The entire Church, Gathering Area, door handles, bathrooms & Parish Hall are sanitized after every Mass.
ASSUMPTION HOLY DAY
Is this Saturday, August 15. Because it is on a Saturday this year, all Catholics are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass on the Holy Day.
The Parish & Finance Councils and the Ladies Society Officers will meet after Mass next Sunday, Aug. 16. The meeting will be held in the Parish Hall with distancing requirements observed. Sister Cheryl will be at the meeting to talk about Religious Ed for this coming year.
ST. MARY’S WEBSITE
Do you use it to view the current bulletin if you are unable to attend Mass? Do you use it for the Lay Ministry Schedule? Our website address is always on the front cover of the bulletin. It is www.stmarywilton.org
HELP FOR CLOTHES CLOSET
We are still in need of one more volunteer to help at the Closet from 9am-Noon on Saturday, August 15. Please see Wanda Einfeldt or Father Steinle.
Registration will take place on August 30, Sept. 6 & Sept. 13 immediately following Mass. The fees are the same as the last couple of years; $40 per child, $35 for three or more children. The fees are to be paid at the time of registration. This figures out to be $1.74 per class. The fee covers the cost of the textbook and materials. Religious Ed this year will be for grades Kindergarten – 9 (not Preschool). As Sister Cheryl will explain to parents, we must follow all Diocesan regulations.
THINKING ABOUT BECOMING A CATHOLIC
New classes start soon after Labor Day. These classes are for anyone who has never been baptized, baptized in another Christian religion or baptized a Catholic but still needs First Communion and/or Confirmation. If you are an adult or a student in the 11th grade or older, these classes are for you! Contact Father Steinle at email@example.com or call 319.572.6550. These are inquiry classes to help you in making your decision to become a Catholic or receive the Sacraments.
AUGUST EXTRA ENVELOPES
St. Mary’s Cemetery Donation, Feast of the Assumption of Mary and our Church Building Fund are the extra envelopes for August. Thank you for being generous to these special collections.
