In celebration of our Blessed Mother, the Legion of Mary will be leading the rosary every Friday throughout the month of May. All are welcome to join us in the Day Activities Center (DAC) at Holy Family. The rosary will begin at 7:00 pm and light refreshments will be offered afterwards. We look forward to praying with you!
“For where two or three have gathered together in my name, I am there in their midst.”
These are the two projects we will be creating on May 12th at 1:00pm in the DAC! The frog will be on a smaller scale. The others are picture/certificate/calendar frames that can be used to hold many sizes and are easy to change pictures! You will design your own. Either would make nice Mother’s Day gifts!
Deadline for registration is Thursday, May 10th, at noon. This is a great way to spend time with your children/grandchildren and others of all ages in the parish.

It is that time of year already to begin planning VBS. We are looking for an organized, take charge person that is willing to be the chair or co-chair for this year’s VBS. This is a fairly short-term commitment and last year’s chair is willing to help show you the ropes so that you will have the information you need to make it a great success. The sooner we get started the easier it will be. If this sounds like you, please call or email Theresa Shaw at 812-944-8283 x2 or email@example.com
