Plans are underway for our
17th Annual Summer Festival. This year it will be
held from July 24th to the 28th. So tell your family
and friends to save the dates and make plans for a
fun filled celebration. Some of your fellow
parishioners are working hard to make sure
everything is organized just right. They have
already started to make some additions and changes
that will make this year’s edition the best one
ever. If you would like to get involved with the
planning please feel free to stop by any of the
feast committee meetings that will be posted in
future editions of the parish bulletin.
THIS YEARS THEME – Each year since the
inception of the feast we have had a catchphrase
that is the underlying theme of that years feast. As
you may recall Pope Benedict XVI has set aside this
year as a special year for Catholics throughout the
world to rediscover and share with others the
precious gift of Faith entrusted to each of us. In
recognition of this we have chosen as our theme
Year of Faith – The St. Theresa Feast Embodies Our
Let me show you how.”
RAFFLE - In conjunction with the feast, we
will hold our Grand Raffle. The grand prize will be
a 2013 Mercedes Benz C300 or $30,000. The 2nd prize
will be $1,000 and the 3rd prize will be $500. There
will only be 1000 tickets sold at a cost of $100
each. Once gain we ask for your help. This raffle is
very important to the financial state of our parish.
If you cannot buy them yourself please make every
effort to network them among friends, relatives or
co-workers. If your ticket stubs are in before the
end of June you qualify for the early-bird drawing.
The winner of the early-bird will receive $300.00
and 3 additional free tickets for the Grand Raffle.
Each weekend parishioners will be in the back of
Church to accept your raffle tickets, answer any
questions, or give you any additional tickets that
you may need.
