Coins for Cancer

Normally during CSW, we have a coin drive and donate to cancer research.  This year, we have a young girl who attends preschool at St. Stanislaus who was diagnosed with leukemia.  I would like to dedicate the coin drive to her family who can use the love and support of our diocesan community.

On February 11, we are going to offer a "Dollar for Denim" to help the cause as well.  The kids can pay a dollar to take a uniform “C” day.  

Christmas Bazaar

The Women’s Association has done a fabulous job over the years hosting an annual Christmas Bazaar, and we are grateful.  However, this past Christmas was their last one. 

At the last Parents' Club meeting, we brainstormed on ways the school could give the children the opportunity to still "shop" for their loved ones.  We are still in the brainstorming phase, but we thought of having a few craft stations set up in the gymnasium where children could come, make a few crafts, and wrap them for gifts.  We are looking for a couple of parents who could look into a few options and help bring this to fruition.  Please contact Lori Pearson who will send it to the Parents’ Club board.

Service Hour Options

Father Stephan is extending an invitation to help in the parish in a variety of ways.  For example, linens on the altar need to be changed each week, floral arrangements need to be freshened up, and much more.  Please contact Father Stephan at 945-4246. 

St. Patrick’s Day 5K!!!

If you are not going to participate in the St. Rose St. Patty’s 5K/1 Mile Fun Run on Saturday, March 19, please consider volunteering.  We need many volunteers to set up, tear down, host the food table, and direct traffic on the course.  Please contact Heather McFadden as soon as possible to volunteer.  For more information, please refer to the Facebook page:
