Remember that Friday June 1st is a PA Day.
St. Nicholas Annual BBQ
Our school BBQ will be held on June 6th, 2018 this year from 5:00 – 7:30pm. We are very excited to have celebrated another great year! We will have many activities again this year including the Cake Walk, Bake Sale, Basket Raffle, ticket sales, ticket collections, fire truck, police care, and games! The BBQ will raise money for school initiatives.
We would like to remind everyone to purchase their food and activity tickets by May 25th, 2018. Tickets will also be available to purchase the night of the BBQ.
We are looking for volunteers to help at the BBQ. Please contact Tharen (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have time to give before the event (preparing baskets, baking, etc.) or on the day of the event (selling tickets, running games, face painting, etc.)

A Message From St. Michael’s Parish Pastoral Associate for Schools and Youth Ministry, Andrea Laughlin:
Is your child entering grade 2 in the 2018-2019 school year? Students in grade 2 will be preparing for their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion with preparation expected to begin in the Fall 2018 to the Spring 2019. Your child must be Baptized to receive these Sacraments.
Is your child entering grade 7 in the 2018-2019 school year? Please be advised that Confirmation Preparation will begin promptly in September in anticipation of a Fall/Winter 2018 Confirmation date. Locate your child’s Baptismal Certificate this summer to submit to the Parish in September. Also note, your child is required to have received both Baptism and First Communion to be eligible for receiving Confirmation. If you have questions concerning the Sacraments please contact Andrea Laughlin by calling (519) 884 – 9311 extension 34 or email email@example.com for further inquiry.
