       If you or someone in your family needs our prayers, please call Elaine Young (684-4920).  We would like to keep our list current, so names will be removed after two months unless we are notified.  The long-term homebound are exempt from this policy.

       Reminder—call Betsy Uhrich if you know of anyone who is sick.


Hostesses for the October 11th meeting:  Sue Eck, Vicki Kamholz, Diane Lojacono, Sharon McPartlan, and Terry Rupp.

       This meeting will be at 6:30 PM in Selbert Hall.


       September was the beginning of another Sodality year.  Dues may be sent to our Treasurer, Bev Walnicki, or paid at the meeting.  Please make checks out to: Annunciation Ladies Sodality.


       Sodality Sunday will be October 15th.  We will attend the 8 AM Mass as a group.  Last month we had a wonderful turnout with 19 Sodalists and 10 spouses in attendance.


October Birthdays: 7- Margaret Maciejewski, 8 - Carmen Beausejour, 12 - Anna Mae Haungs, 18 - Betsy Uhrich,          19 - Debbie Wirth, 25 - Kathleen Cichocki.


       There will be a retreat for Sodality members given by Deb Keenan on October 18th in Selbert Hall at 9:30 AM.  We will start with 9:00 AM Mass in the Church.  “The Letters”, a biographical drama film about St. Teresa of Calcutta, will be shown.  Lunch will be provided.  This is free to members and $10 for guests, who are always welcome.


       Our Rummage Sale will be held on October 21st starting at 8 AM.  If you are willing to help Saturday morning, please arrive by 7:45 AM.  Set-up of tables will be at 6 PM on October 19th and set-up of merchandise on October 20th at 10 AM.  As you do some fall housecleaning, keep it in mind!


       On October 30th, the Parish is holding “Meeting Mary” at 7 PM in Selbert Hall.  The Ladies Sodality will be hosting the evening and providing refreshments.  It will be a good opportunity to advertise for new members.  More information will be discussed at our October meeting.


       We would like to establish a new ministry to visit the homebound members of Ladies Sodality.  Details will be given at the October meeting.  Please consider this ministry.  With enough members, visits can be maybe once a month.


       We will continue to collect jewelry and toys during the year for next year’s picnic.  They may be brought to any meeting.
