You are asked to donate what you can, the suggested donation is $12.00, but any amount is appreciated.


Chinese Raffle


St. Michael’s festival is going to have the Chinese raffle again this year. It was very popular last year and made money, so we are hoping to do even better in 2018! If you would like to donate a new item for the raffle, let a committee member know soon. Items such as gift baskets with school supplies, gift cards, sport items, or household supplies are needed. Basically, anything that you would like to win for yourself!


Our parish festival is the largest event of our parish, so let’s all do our part to make sure it’s a big success!!


Thank You, Your Festival Committee

Fellow Parishioners - In just a few short weeks the annual St. Michael's Festival will be here. August 12th is the appointed day, and the Festival Committee would like to encourage everyone to join in the fun and support this year's primary fund raising event for our parish. The following are a few ways in which everyone can help:


-    Festival Raffle Tickets - Please pick up yours in the back of the church. Any unsold tickets should be turned in so they can be sold the day of the festival.


-    Set-Up - The tents will be set up on Friday, August 10th.  At 6:30p.m. we will be setting up the bingo tent and some of the booths. We could use a lot of help to set up benches and tables and chairs.


-   Workers - Please consult the workers list and be at your appointed job on time. If for some reason you've been missed, contact one of the festival committee members. I'm sure we can find a spot where you can help.


-    Clean-Up - We will be taking down the bingo stands Sunday evening and we always need help on Monday to put tables and chairs away and clean up the kitchen. This starts at 8a.m. on Monday morning.
