We will start with an Outdoor Mass at 12 Noon, after which Bishop Grob will bless the New Grotto. This Mass will replace the 11AM Mass in the Church. There will be No 11AM Mass on Sunday, August 15th.
This will be followed by our 2021 Summerfest Celebration. Free lunch and games will be provided to everyone. The Prayer Shawl Committee has donated three beautiful quilts for us to raffle off on this day. So mark your calendars, and let’s celebrate!
Since we are getting closer to the big day, we are asking that everyone start signing up to attend this event. Sign-up Genius for Summer Fest attendance is available below or you can call the Rectory at: (847) 872-8778. This will give us a better idea of how much food to buy.
Some of our activities will be a Water Balloon Toss Contest, Football Toss, Duck Pond, a Caricature Artist, a Magician, and Cuddles the Clown who does face painting and balloon animals!

We are in need of volunteers to make this event go smoothly and efficiently. We will be posting a Sign-up Genius on the Parish Website for people to volunteer to help set-up, run a game, or clean-up. Students looking for service hours for Confirmation, could use this opportunity. You know the saying, many hands make light work!

The Hospitality Team is meeting again on Monday, August 2nd, at 7PM in the Hayes Community Room. We are always looking for new members with new ideas.
As many of you may remember, we had a very popular White Elephant Bingo Game for the Adults at our last Summerfest. So you will be seeing our big sparkly donation box for this also in the Church Vestibule. Any extra items you have laying around the house? Just drop them in our box, and we will wrap them up, and use them as Bingo prizes. It really was a fun game!
