Ice Cream Fundraiser for St. Vincent de Paul Society - Wednesday, August 27
We invite you to make plans to join us at Leatherby's on Wednesday, August 27 from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. We have another great opportunity to enjoy an evening out with the family, fantastic ice cream, and to support our St. Vincent de Paul Society. Leatherby's, in support of our parish, has offered to return twenty percent of all proceeds from this evening back to our parish. Please click here for a copy of the flyer. You must bring this flyer with you on the evening of this event in order for the parish to receive the proceeds from this fundraiser. As always, thank you for your continued support.

Catholic Ladies Relief Society - Active Membership Drive & Potluck
Your local society of the Catholic Ladies Relief Society is right here in Citrus Heights. We are Society #11 within the Sacramento Diocese. Our motto is: We work with our hands with love in our hearts. This is the motivating invocation to our work here in your parish area. Our main mission is: To increase charity to all; to promote the advancement of its members through acts of FAITH, HOPE and CHARITY. We are in dire need of new members. There are other societies up and down the Sacramento Valley, and we are now facing a tipping point in the balance of active and able-bodied members in this parish. An active member simply must be a woman “practicing (her) Roman Catholic faith over the age of eighteen of good moral character.”
COME AND SEE and meet our ladies, find out about our work, and have a good meal at our end of summer potluck Monday, September 8 at 6 p.m. in the Community Center. You may contact our president directly or you may speak to one of our members after celebrating your Mass on Sunday or the weekdays. We will make ourselves available throughout the upcoming weeks of this drive. The most exciting of all is our celebration of 60 YEARS OF SERVICE to this parish to be celebrated at our September 20 installation.
