Paul Pompili's mother-in-law goes to Our Lord

Please remember in your prayers Paul Pompili's mother-in-law who died last Tuesday after receiving the anointing of the Sacrament of the Sick last Sunday from Fr. Richard.  Paul and Judy really took good care of Bernice during her lengthy illness.  Funeral mass will be on Tuesday at 11 am after the rosary at 10:30am at St. John Fisher.

Regular K/C Business Meeting CANCELED for Jan 16

Our regular K/C Business meeting scheduled for the third Monday of the month (Jan 16) is hereby canceled due to weather.  An update as to the time of our next meeting will be posted soon.

Breakfast canceled a second time....

I regret this notice is going out late.  I'm very sorry that I didn't publish this on our blog when I first heard about it on Friday.  I just hope that circumstances prevented volunteers from actually attempting to go help.  But my negligence is inexcusable and I'm very sorry.  I especially appreciate the kindness you all have extended in serving at our breakfasts, which makes this error especially thoughtless.  Please forgive me.

Pray for National Unity

As America prepares to welcome a new president, the Knights of Columbus is urging its members and other Catholics to pray the Novena for National Unity from Thursday, Jan. 12, through Inauguration Day, Friday, Jan. 20. The prayer invokes the maternal intercession of Mary, the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the United States.

In announcing the days of prayer, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson noted:
From its earliest days, the Knights of Columbus has been an organization that is dedicated to both faith and patriotism. This novena provides Knights, and all Catholics, the opportunity to serve their country in a faithful way by bringing unity in values and faith in a way that overcomes any political divisions. Our country is strongest when it is unified, and that unity is strongest when it is shaped by the timeless values of our faith.
We ask all Catholics to pray this Novena for National Unity, beginning on Thursday, Jan. 12, and concluding on Friday, Jan. 20.

The prayer can be found here.

Breakfast at St. John Fisher THIS Sunday 1-15-17

Please sign up to help serve pancakes, eggs, sausage, fruit & beverages after the 9am mass and 11am mass this Sunday at St. John Fisher.

We'll probably have some youth group helpers but there's always plenty to do.  Deacon Scott will open the cafeteria doors at 8am and food prep will begin at that time.  Final clean-up should be completed within an hour after the 11am mass lets out.  Please take on one or both shifts.

Due to expected bad weather, the breakfast scheduled for this Sunday is now canceled.  Tentatively, it is planned for NEXT Sunday January 15 - pending approval.  Stay tuned.....
