Hayley Oliver sometimes likes to escape. She loves acting, reading and writing – activities that allow her to become other people or live life outside of herself. But when she’s back to being Haley, she is a grounded individual with a deep affection for her faith.
Our final blood drive of the year is fast approaching and the winter season typically means a critical need for blood. Please consider donating before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season approaches. The blood drive is from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20. Call Julia Elacqua at 797-9773 to schedule your appointment. Walk-ins are welcome.
At our request, the Utica Police Department has furnished us with several new handicapped parking spaces on Jay Street. We ask for everyone’s consideration for those with a true handicap. Also, be advised that there should be no parking in front of the church on Catherine Street where the curb has been painted yellow. That area must be kept open for emergency vehicles.
Our Hope Appeal Goal is $37,252.50, and so far we have received $22,265 from 215 parishioners/families. We are $14,987.50 from our goal. If you haven’t yet made your pledge or donation, please return your completed pledge cards to the parish in the weekend collection basket or send them to the parish office. Please be generous with your pledge.
