PARISH FESTIVAL: COUNT DOWN TO SEPTEMBER 13--6 WEEKS

The Parish Festival and the food and fun that goes with it will be here before we know it! Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 13th and join us for the “WE ARE ONE” annual Parish Festival. The Festival is a great way to join in fellowship and service -  celebrating together and working together to make the day a fun-filled event.
TREASURE TOWER  
Donation Bags have been handed out and we are ready to build up the “treasures” for the ever popular Treasure Tower-it’s a “sell out” every year. We are inviting ALL our parish families to join in and make a donation to fill the Tower with great prizes.
 * Donations must be NEW items, valued between $10 to $5,000 and can be anything you can think of.
 * Popular items include:  Home & garden items, tools, homemade crafts, toys & games, IPods or IPads, bikes, jewelry, religious items,  gift cards & MORE!
 * Cash donations are another option if you can’t think of that perfect item.  
If you can, grab a donation bag and drop your donation in the Festival Tubs at the back of church or parish office over the next few weeks. We are happy to pick up items as well, please contact Carol Anderson at 402-379-0165.

MEMORIAL & DEDICATION OPPORTUNITIES

We are grateful to the many that have offered their prayers and gifts to help make St. Mary’s Church a beautiful worship space for our parish family. We are nearly there, but still have opportunities to make a memorial or legacy gift.
One of the final wishes was to have 2 permanent projectors for St. Mary’s Church. Thanks to several generous donors, this wish is now a reality. Watch for their arrival this fall as they will help us experience and participate in worship in an exciting new way!
