This year our PreK and Kindergarten Information Night snuck up on us the same week as the Auction, so they got somewhat less publicity than in the past. Although St. Jude tries to keep in touch with our school and parish families that have young children, we always like to ask and invite our parishioners to reach out to their family, friends, and neighbors who may have children turning 4-years old or 5-years old by August 1st, 2021. Although our two information events occurred this past week, we made a recording of them that we will happily share with any interested family, followed by an invitation to the Round-up events we will hold later this spring.

St. Jude Catholic School is making yard signs available and asking our parishioners to display them at your house or maybe even your workplace for as long as it is practical to do so. We will leave these in our parish lobby for a couple of weeks. Take as many as you can actually use. (No need to return them unless the sign is in good shape and you can no longer display it.) Help spread the good news about our excellent school. Yard signs are currently one of the top three most impactful marketing methods being employed by Catholic schools (along with a strong website and word of mouth)!

The weekend after our auction, St. Jude HASA reported preliminary numbers that we likely raised between $8,000 and $9,000 from the event. After recalculating all revenues, including live and silent auctions, with cash, check, and credit card swipes processed, plus the Dr. Long braces which have since sold, the total profit was over $18,800, very much on par with our best events. We pulled it off during this very challenging year and the pandemic on top of it all, so once again, thank you so much to all those who donated and/or contributed. Our sponsorship banner is still on display in the lobby area. Please thank and support those businesses and the many others who contributed.

How blessed we are here at St. Jude to have a stained glass window with the image of the Divine Mercy. It seems only fitting that we make a special effort to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday, the Sunday after Easter.

At 3:00 p.m. next Sunday, April 11th we will pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet and finish with Eucharistic Benediction. Invite your friends and family, especially those who may have fallen away from the Church.

Fr. John will be in the confessional from 2 until 2:50 p.m. for anyone who has not yet had the opportunity for confession prior to Easter.
If you participate in the Rice Bowl Project, please bring your rice bowl total in the form of a check(payable to either St. Jude or Sacred Heart) place it in an envelope marked "Rice Bowl" and put it in the collection basket Holy Thursday or at the next Mass you attend during Holy Week or Easter. Thank you!
