Sunday Masses

As many of you know, we do the music for the 10:00 mass on the 2nd Sunday of each month. We also provide the reader on this Sunday. Please consider becoming a part of St. Stan’s community in this way. We have also been meeting somewhere for lunch afterwards with our families. Let me know if you are interested in helping.

Cost is $50 and is due with p-slip on April 11th.

 

Youth Fundraiser Dinner – May 7th

This is our big fundraiser for the year and helps us to keep our costs so low (every retreat and summer program that we offer is subsidized by what we make here). We really need everyone’s help to make this successful! There is a wonderful Italian dinner and a very funny, nationally known comedian for entertainment. You can help by selling tickets prior to the dinner, donating items for the live auction, donating desserts to be auctioned off, helping collect money that evening, and, most importantly, inviting friends and family to come and support our youth! Let me know how you can help,651–292-1390,
