Rain?….nothing to fear!!!
This Sunday, October 22, we will celebrate our re-scheduled St. Alphonsus Parish Family Day. Everything is on track to make this the best Family Day yet!
Because of the possibility of inclement weather, join us immediately after the 10:30 a.m. Mass in St. Alphonsus Gym on Josephine St., right across the street from the entrance to St. Mary’s Assumption Church, for all the fun, food, and festivities that you can handle in one day!
1.  If you have volunteered or wish to volunteer to help set up for Family Day please come to the gym starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning.
2.  If you are bringing food or drink for Family Day please bring it directly to the gym (not the rectory) on Sunday beginning at 9:30 a.m.
3.  Because of Family Day we will not celebrate Mass at St. Mary’s Chapel on Sunday at 9 a.m.
See you Sunday!
Fr. Richard
