Happy Highland Games Weekend

ithe barrachd taigeis. This translated reads: “eat more haggis!”

The Highland Games are upon us and I hope you get to enjoy some of the Scottish festivities at Loon or around town. I always do!

The Parish Knitters Club donated a boxful of mittens, hats, & scarfs to the Religious Sisters in Kentucky whom we supported as our annual Mission Appeal. If you recall, the Sisters couldn’t be with us, because they couldn’t afford the plane fare. Well they certainly appreciated the donation from the parish Knitters Club. The Sisters care for the poorest of people living in the Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky. If you would like to “knit for a cause”, or learn how, and join the team, please contact Mary Aranyosi @ (603) 374-3589 or maryanranyosi@gmail.com

Check out our Parish Capital Campaign Mountain, located inside the church near the poor box. The little boots are trekking higher and closer to our goal! And more of the footprints changed color, from white (pledged/promised income) to yellow (actual income). We are doing well! Thank you to all who filled out a pledge card. In the near future we will have a recognition wall-plaque , with levels representing those who support us. More to come!

Our new Parish “Cleaning Crew” group (waiting on an official name for us) met and concluded that our first “fix-it” project will be, painting the conference room. Saturday, October 6th, we (and anyone else who would like to help out) will meet at 9:30am to paint (we have 2 enthusiastic members willing to paint) the conference room downstairs. We need others to clean, and organize the room as well as, some will begin to tackle the two kitchens. Please lend a hand from 9:30am until 1:30pm.
Fr. Pat, from La Salette Shrine, will be celebrating a Healing Mass and Concert here at the Parish Sunday, October 21st at 2:00pm. Please spread the word! We are fortunate to have him come!

Gu bheil Dia a ‘beannachadh ar paraiste Caitligeach beag an seo anns na Beanntan Geal. This reads: “May God continue to bless our little Catholic Parish here in the White Mountains” (At least I hope, that’s what it says! LOL)
Peace,
Fr. Kneeland
