Easter Egg Hunt
EASTER EGG HUNT IS BACK! Easter Sunday, after the 10:30am Mass, there will once again be an Easter Egg Hunt for the children. Please bring at least 2 surprise filled plastic eggs for each child who wishes to participate (extras are always appreciated for unexpected guests). Please deposit the eggs in the baskets that will be in the vestibule prior to the 10:30am Mass. After Mass we ask that the children assembly on the Juno Street lawn, 5 years and older on the side nearest St. Francis and those younger than 5 on the other side of the walkway, for the “Hunt”. Please contact the rectory for additional information. Have Fun!
You’re the one that I want…to attend Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy’s production of Grease! It’s our first musical production with our new Parish Hall sound and light system.
The show dates are Thursday, April 28th at 1:30pm and Friday, April 29th at 7pm.
