Saint Mary of the Annunciation had a booth at Caroline Little League’s opening day on April 14th at the Caroline County Little League fields. The booth was setup to promote St. Mary’s Vacation Bible School and other ministries of the parish.

The event was organized by Gina Stargel who noted that it was a very fun event even though it was a particularly windy day. People had a chance to participate in a raffle which helped raise $176.00 dollars towards VBS.

The raffle winners were:

For the Baby Bundle ——- Va Beasley

For the Girls Night ———— Aimee Fletcher

For Movie Night ————- Angie Fines

For The Baseball basket—— Cecilia Stargel

Gina also wanted to say thank you to Shonnie Carroll and Kari Campbell for helping with the raffle.

And A very big Thank You to Steve and Mary Gajdos, Sue Brim, Suzie HeMakana Tatham, Ron Wisniewski, Gail M Dillon, Penny Costello Geary, and everyone who helped put this together.... though we didn’t bring in any new members we did hand out flyers and remind people we are in Ladysmith. It was a fun day !!! 

Easter Alms Giving Donation Match Challenge Announced

Over the last few weeks we made several improvements to our facilities such as replacing all the toilets, repairing heating and air-conditioning units, reconfiguring the music ministry area and several cosmetic improvements. However, when it comes to maintenance and upkeep there always seems to be more that needs to be done. In our case that includes repairing and repaving our parking lot.

To help with the costs of improvements one of our parishioners is offering $3000 in matching funds for any money donated to the maintenance fund! Would you be willing to help? To contribute simply write “Donation Challenge” in the memo of your check or on one of the blue giving envelopes with your donation enclosed. Anything you donate is greatly appreciated! Challenge ends April 15th.
