Join us Saturday, April 27, as we celebrate spring, growth, and new life!
We will kick off the event with a Festival Choir leading us in song at the 5:00 p.m. Bilingual Mass. We are looking for a multi-generational group of individuals, eight years of age to adults, who would love to be part of our bilingual choir. If you would like to sing or play an instrument, we would love to have you! This is an amazing way to use your God-given gifts and talents! If you would like to join us, we will have a rehearsal in the church on Wednesday, April 24 from 7-8:00 p.m. If your child/youth participates in Faith for Life classes, the rehearsal on April 24 would count for Wednesday night Formation. If you have any questions, please contact Terri Renner or Suzanne Garcia (Spanish) at 763-421-2471. This is an amazing way to celebrate as a community!
Mass will include a procession of flags representing countries of origin of our parishioners. All are invited to bring a flower to place near the display of the Divine Mercy and you are also encouraged to wear floral prints.
Following Mass, there will be food (tacos with rice and beans/salsa and chips/hot dogs with toppings and chips), ice cream, beverages (including Men in Black Margaritas), DJ, dancing, children’s area, Candy Shoppe, Folkloric Dancers, gift basket raffle, and grand raffle.
The raffle drawing will cap off the evening at 9:00 p.m. April 27. Over $10,000 will be awarded in cash prizes with the Grand Prize of your choice of a TORO zero-turn mower (MSRP $6,299) or $5,000 cash!
Please pick up your raffle ticket packets at the Lenten Fish Dinners or before/after weekend Masses. Selling or buying your tickets helps support our various parish ministries. This annual raffle is a key component of our parish budget and we appreciate everyone’s participation! You may remember that in more recent years our annual raffle was done in May at the Spring Fiesta. Prior to that, it was done in June at Summerfest. This year’s Festival of Flowers raffle in April replaces those raffles. Please return raffle tickets no later than 8:00 p.m. Saturday, April 27.
We are in need of the following donations: cases of canned soda (Coke and Pepsi products), and cases of 16.9 FL OZ of bottled water. Donations may be dropped off in the Parish Office by April 23.
Volunteers will be needed for decorating, set-up, food prep, serving, children’s games, candy shoppe, ice cream shoppe, beverages, and clean up. Please stop by the Connect With Us desk after weekend Masses or call the parish office at 763-421-2471.
