George and Cathy are having a contest for the picnic! Picnic Sunday is June 5, 2016 (it is George’s birthday, too). The contest is collecting donations for either George or Cathy. The priest with the most donations collected by May 29 will have to wear either Red Sox gear (for George who doesn’t like the Red Sox) or Patriots Gear (for Cathy who REALLY doesn’t like the Patriots). All funds collected go to the Ministries and Missions of St. Paul’s. Donations are collected in jars in the Parish Hall each Sunday during Coffee Hour. Find the table with the balloons and gear. As of May 23, the totals are: George: $463 and Cathy: $451. In the case of a tie on picnic Sunday, BOTH priests will wear their gear!
