The sweatshop ladies have been busy preparing for the annual bazaar. We NEED OLD JEWELRY, your ideas, Christmas decorations, especially quilted wall hangings, knitted and crocheted items. Please bring your donated items to the guild meeting, to the sweatshop on Mondays from 10-2, leave at the message center or rectory.

This year the bazaar will be held on Saturday, November 4th and Sunday, November 5th after the Masses. Please mark your calendars.
