Dear friends,

First, a clarification about registering for the Dinner Auction. We’re doing that on-line this year.  All you have to do is enter this address into your web browser and it’ll take you right there:  http://atbatsja.givesmart.com. Now, if you don’t do computers, or if you need help, please call us here at the rectory and we’ll get you signed up. While a lot of what we’re doing for the auction is ‘online’, we can still get you registered the ole fashioned way!

Our next Parish Life Initiative Apostolate meeting is Monday, March 25 at 7pm in the Naeger Room (basement of the parish office; enter through back door). Our focus at this meeting is our Social Justice and Outreach to the Poor Ministry. Lots of great ideas coming out of this. Join us! 

If you want to make a donation to Fr. George’s school in Uganda, you can still do so. Two options here:

1.     Make a check payable to St. Joan of Arc and we’ll make a bulk transfer directly to the school at the end of Lent. You can use the blue envelopes in church and either drop it in the Sunday basket or drop it at the rectory.

2.     Or you can call the school’s St. Louis’s ‘headquarters’ at (314) 724-6654. The office is located near St. Margaret of Scotland parish where Fr. George was living while here in St. Louis.

The Parish Lenten Mission is this week. Fr. Simon Felix, a Dominican priest, will be our Mission Preacher. Join us Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday evenings, 7-8pm in church. Fr. Simon is an excellent preacher and teacher. Give this time to the Lord and you will not be disappointed!

 Know that you are loved dearly and prayed for daily.
