                     Children's Liturgy
Dear Seven Holy Founders Community,
We would like to invite you to attend our Children's Liturgy of the Word. On the second Sunday of each month at 9am Mass, we invite young children (ages 2- 7) to participate in a lesson and activity about the Gospel. (We ask that at least one parent of 2 and 3 year olds attends with them). The priest will call up all children for a blessing before the First Reading, and children will return to their pews before the Offertory. At this time, Children's Liturgy will be held in the rectory.  For questions or concerns, please contact gailshf@aol.com  

We will conduct a class for new servers right
after New Year's Day. Anyone in 4th Grade
or older is eligible to join our program.
Adults interested in joining the program
to serve Masses for Sunday or the weekday Masses can be trained separately. Parents are also invited to join their children in serving. Contact Mike Panneri at 849- 5557 by December 10th for information or to join our program.

Dear Generous Parishioners
With the Christmas season rapidly approaching,
Seven Holy Founders St. Vincent
de Paul Society is once again asking
for assistance of our “Neighbors in Need.”
We are asking you, our generous parishioners,
to consider adopting a less fortunate
family for Christmas. This can be
done by individuals or by organizations.
Your generosity last year provided 28 families with warm clothing, toys, food and personal items. We anticipate an increase in the number of families seeking assistance this year.
For those of you who are not able to adopt a family or join a group, but would still like to participate, we will have trees in the back of church with stars to purchase
items. We will be needing items such as blankets, pillows, bath and kitchen towels, diapers and gift cards.
Thank you in advance for you continued support for “Our Neighbors in Need.” If you have any questions or to sign up to adopt a family (either individually or as a group), please call Patty Papke at 680-3134.

The Giving Tree
Christmas trees filled with stars will be in the Church vestibules starting this weekend. Take a star, purchase the item printed on the star, wrap it as a Christmas present with the star taped on the outside of the present. Place gifts in the back of Church by the statue of Mary, or drop off at the Rectory Office. Gifts will be distributed to the needy for Christmas by our St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Turn-in deadline is December 8th.

Attention Parishioners!
This is a request from our bank, Montgomery Bank. “When depositing a check into a Seven Holy Founders account, it should be made payable to Seven Holy Founders. You may note in the memo portion of the check what the check is meant for.”If you have any questions regarding this, please call the Rectory and talk to Gail.  Many thanks.
