Announcements for Week Ending November 26, 2016

St. Michael's School is holding their annual food drive on Monday, Nov. 21. The students supply our Food Pantry with thousands of food items during Thanksgiving Week. We are very grateful for these blessings. This food keeps our Food Pantry going for several months. We need your help on Monday, Nov. 21. Please come to the office at 9:00 am. to help us empty the many boxes of food and place them on the shelves in our pantry and storage room. Many hands make light work....with your help; we will finish in two hours.

You are invited to a Thanksgiving Celebration Thursday, November 24, 2016. The day will begin with Mass at 10:30 am, followed by Thanksgiving Dinner in the Smith Parish Center. Turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy will be provided. Please bring a side dish, rolls or dessert to share. Sign-up sheets are in back of church. Please include what side dish you will bring so as not to duplicate many sides. Brother Dave will be on vacation Tuesday and Wednesday, November 22 and 23.

On the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, Angel Tree tags are available for pick-up from the Christmas tree at the back of church. Please be sure to sign the sheet on the usher’s table so that we will know what children’s names have been taken. This year we have approximately 35 children. You have been so generous with your gifts for the children. It is a real blessing for me to be involved. As usual, each child will receive a clothing gift and a toy ……etc. This year I need your gift, unwrapped, and returned to the office or brought to church no later than Sunday, December 11. Please remember to include the tags for return if any of the items are the wrong size or color. Most stores will give these when the gift is purchased. For any of you who would like to participate but are unable to shop, let me know and I will be glad to take care of it for you. May God bless all of you during this wonderful time of the year. Please call me if you have any questions or have any problems with your gifts. Thanking you in advance for your generosity – Ancelyn Smith – 991-2354

We are now collecting unwanted and gently used items for the Trinket Table at the International Bazaar to be held on December 3rd and 4th. All proceeds will go to the Social Action Committee, helping to defray the costs of the bazaar. Bring your donations to the church office. Plan now to help with Ten Thousand Villages at St. Michael’s International Holiday Bazaar, December 3 and 4th. Sponsored by Social Action Committee, “Villages” is the anchor group, included not only to serve craft communities in developing but also to attract the public through variety and name recognition. We are the only place in Arizona where you can “shop the village”. More visitors mean more purchases for small local groups, as well. We need a roster of folk to help with set-up and to sit the Villages display in two-hour rotations. To help, contact Ila Abernathy.

Remembering that Tohono O'odham and other indigenous peoples are the original stewards of this land, we give thanks for the past and present elders of their communities, and for all indigenous peoples who worship here today.
