THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
JANUARY 25, 2015


SUPERBOWL SUNDAY PANCAKE BREAKFAST

FEBRUARY 1, 2015 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.


Coco wants you all to know that our 9th & 10th Grade Confirmation Candidates are hosting a PANCAKE BREAKFAST from 8:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Social Hall February 1st (Superbowl Sunday). There is no charge for the meal. All the students are asking for are Free-Will Donations.


All money raised will be for Samantha "sammy" Rhinesmith, a 13 year old 8th Grade Student in our Religious Education Program to help with her mounting medical bills. Sammy suffered a Stroke. She had to have a large portion of her skull removed, which has since been put back and she is now battling an infection. She will need lots of therapy to relearn basic skills. When you visit Sammy she always greets you with a smile and she powers through whatever comes her way. 


Our Confirmation Candidates (and Coco) invite you to start your day off right so you have energy to support your Superbowl team and financially support one of your own.


Then........


Join Fr. Matt and Fr. Jhon and Coco in classrooms 3 & 4 for their

SUPERBOWL XLIX PARTY!!!

Sunday, February 1 Party begins: 5:00 p.m.

While we will not know who the final two teams will be until lste this Sunday night (Let us hope for the underdog team from the great state of Wisconsin). We would love to see a big turn out.


If you care to attend, there is a sign-up sheet in the vestibule. Just place your name and the food that you will bring as a covered dish or whatever. Coffee, Tea, and Soda will be provided courtesy of the house.

To help get everything ready, please speak with Fr. Matt or Fr. Jhon.

Think of Catholic Charities Clothes 

Donation Boxes

At this time of the year that saying "out with the old, in with the new" gets repeated again and again. Think of that saying as you start to put away all the new clothes, shoes, and accessories you received this Christmas and perhaps place the old ones they will replace, into the Catholic Charities clothes donation bin in our parking lot. The clothing box revenues help to feed almost 9000 people every month in our pantries as well as fund other emergency services for the poor.

Food Pantries need your Help!

We are asking everyone in our parish families every time they come to Mass at St. John Vianney or St. Thomas the Apostle to please bring at least one food item, personal product, gift card, or donation. The items can be left in the vestibule at St. John Vianney or in the Social Hall at St. Thomas the Apostle. You will be supporting: Harvest House, Sussex; Hope House, Dover; New Hope Food Pantry, Oak Ridge; Partnership for Social Services, Franklin.


We thank all of those who faithfully and generously, every week share what they have with those who have nothing.
