Dear Friends in Christ,
   Of all the feasts celebrated by the Church in honor of Our Lady, the two most important are the Immaculate Conception in December and the Assumption in August.

   Ice cream Social will follow in the Hitchcock Room.
   Please be sure to join us for this special celebration in honor of Our Lady.
                                                            Sincerely in Christ,
                                                            Father La Pastina
