To date 1,044 books of tickets have been sold and the monies returned. Thank you for your ongoing
support!! We’re doing well, but with only a month until the draw date there are still a lot of books out
there. We kindly request that all outstanding tickets, sold or unsold, be returned via the collection basket
or the church office by May 31st. This gives us two weeks before the draw to sell any that are left. To all
those who have worked so hard to help us reach our goal of a sellout….the volunteers, the buyers, and
the sellers, your dedication to the Parish is to be commended and we thank you for making our job easy.
