Dear Ministries and Organizations,
May the grace and peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
It’s just about Festival08 time, and the Fiesta Committee is counting on you and your ministry/organization. Two members of your ministry are invited to a meeting on Friday evening, September 12 at 7:00 p.m. We will be working on some of the details and we need your presence. Please call Patricia Rascon at 623 979-3418 with your RSVP by 4:00 p.m. Thursday, September 11.
Due to rising costs, this year we are asking the each ministry cover their own expenses. The parish will be able to cover paper goods (plates, bowls, napkins etc.) only. Prices for food items have already been set, and the various ministries are asked to assist with the following:
Fundraising Committee | Guadalupanos Carne Asada $2.00, Sunday morning Menudo $4.00 Knights of Columbus | Social Committee Coffee | Soda | Water $1.00 Gatorade $2.00
St Vincent DePaul/Women’s Guild Snacks & Sweets $.25 to $1.00
Jr and Senior High Hamburgers | Chips and Chili Dogs | Chips $3.00, Hot Dogs | Chips $2.50
Encuentro Matrimonial Gorditas $3/00
Catechists | Choir Cheese Crisps $2.00
Clases Biblica Elias | Coro Fry Bread Sweet & Bean $3.00, Deluxe $5.00
Rosary Group Bean & Cheese Burritos $2.50 Greene Chile $3.00
If you would like to hold a Sunday morning fundraiser to cover your Festival08 expenses, please call Jennie Vargas at 623 295-9448 to schedule. The Committee will be soliciting cash and food
donations from the entire parish to assist our efforts, so we’ll need to know your supply needs.
Several weeks ago your ministry received a letter from the Committee asking you to submit the names of young ladies of the parish ages 14 to 17 to compete for the title of Fiesta Queen. So far, two young ladies have come forward. More are needed!
Raffle tickets, and cash/food donation solicitation letters will be available that evening. Finally, if you know of any entertainers who would be willing to join us that weekend, please let us know that evening.
Thanking you for all of your kindness and support of St. Charles Borrmeo parish, I remain,
(Rev. Fr.) Loren W, Gonzales
