Second Collection: There will be a Second Collection taken up at all Masses next weekend, April 21st & 22nd to benefit the Diocese Priest Retirement. Please be as generous as possible.
We would like to congratulate Ruth Tassin, this year’s recipient of the Order of St. Louis IX Medallion.
So, where do we begin when we talk about ‘Ruthie’? We can begin by saying that she has been a parishioner of St. Rosalie for over 20 years and a current member of the money counting team.
She is active in the Altar Society/Women’s Club. On any given Tuesday you will find her stuffing those Confetti Eggs for the Fair -- you know, those eggs that you either love or hate. But, love ’em or hate ’em, they are quite profitable and a whole lot of work!
As a Charter Member of the Knights of Columbus Ladies’ Auxiliary, the Knights presented her with her own embroidered apron as a token of their appreciation for her work at the Friday Night Fish Frys.
She is also a member of the Salesian Servants, the bereavement committee of St. Rosalie Parish. This organization, not part of the Altar Society, is dedicated to comforting the families of deceased parishioners at their time of grief. They recite the Rosary at the funeral and prepare a meal for the family following the funeral.
But it doesn’t stop there – she is also active with the St. Cletus’ St. Joseph Altar Society. She, along with other ladies from St. Rosalie, work tirelessly baking for the altar. They have been instrumental in securing the generous donations that the Society has given our Food Pantry for the past several years.
Ruthie is dedicated to her family and friends. Her deep rooted faith is demonstrated daily by her love for St. Rosalie, her church and its priests. There could be no one more deserving of this award than Ruth Tassin! And so, once again, we congratulate Ruthie, this year’s recipient of the Order of St. Louis IX Medallion!
We have been instructed to remove the waste baskets inside the church by the steps. Besides being unsightly, it is a safety hazard for those requiring the hand rails in order to use the steps. We are aware that it is a convenient place to drop off donations for the Food Pantry, but, for safety sake we ask that you please place your donations in the Gathering Room. We are grateful for the donations, so please don’t stop bringing them.
