The Mass of Christian Burial for Mary K. Donahue will be celebrated here at St. Francis Seraph on Saturday, Sept. 23, 10:00AM. No visitation, cremated at her request. Mary K joined St. Francis Seraph upon the closing of St. George in 1993. Most of her working life was with the Red Cross. One daughter died several years ago, so Codi Strauss is the only daughter surviving. Spunky, she used to ride a motorcycle and liked having a sports car, not an “old lady car.” She was 87.
All-Parish Meeting on St. 24:
As of Friday, we have 89 adults registered and 7 children. Teachers from our school are going to provide child care. This Sunday, Sept. 17, is the deadline to register so that we know how to setup the room and how many meals to order. “Becoming Church Together” is our theme and goal. You can still make plans to attend. We will begin immediately after Mass and conclude by 2:30PM.
As the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi draws near, Oct. 4, our Annual Blessing of Pets will be on Sunday, Oct. 1. People are welcome to bring their pets to the 10AM Mass and the blessing will take place out in front of the church after Mass.
