* MIF Series - Adult Forum - continues in the school Music Room from 9:00 to 9:45 AM on Sundays.

*EPISCOPAL CAMPUS MINISTRY: Would you like to provide a simple supper for about 15 -20 people? The people would include mostly students (and includes the supper providers) that attend mass at the Campus Christian Center. The suppers are on the Sundays in April, excluding Easter. Forming a team for each Sunday lightens the load. IF you are interested, please contact John or Shigeko Hsieh at 325-8543. You may also talk to one of those who have provided supper recently, e.g. Steve and Jill Coulter, Candy amd Les Stephens, Julia and Bob Taylor or Joyce Tracy and many more angels sent by St. Michael.

*St. Michael’s ECW will combine with St. Alban’s ECW for a delightful Luncheon at Lotus Garden at 11:30 am on March 21. The cost for this luncheon is $12.00 and includes tax and gratuity. Please submit your check to Dolores Braren by Friday, March 16th. Checks are to be made out to St. Michael’s E.C.W.

*If you haven’t paid your annual dues to the ECW, please do so at your earliest convenience. We will be most grateful.

*An Easter egg hunt is being planned for 9:00 AM Easter morning. If you would like to volunteer to help with the preparations, please contact the Parish Office - 886-7292 or Angela!!

There is a basket at the back of the church to receive your donations. Our goal is to raise enough money in this way - about $2,000 to build a house in Haiti.
* Food packs for migrants in distress - Please continue to bring nutritious durable (will be stored in shed and hauled in packs) single-serving food BARGAINS. We’ll assemble food packs March 25. No bargains? Wait and donate $$ to Social Concerns special collections to help us buy in bulk.

Our Kentucky Derby party will have horse racing, auctions, and great food. We are asking for a donation of goods or services to be auctioned or, if you prefer, be an event sponsor with a cash donation.

Donation forms are available at the school office. All donation forms are due by April 11th. Any questions, please call Lila Duffy, Director of Development at 722-8478.

Thank you for helping. This important fundraiser will benefit every child at St. Michael's Parish Day School and support a foundation for life-long academic successes.
