From the Office of Faith Formation:
St. Mary Youth Poinsettia Sale!

It’s that time of year again for our annual poinsettia sale! This wonderful fundraiser helps to benefit our sick and shut-in, as well as the youth of our parish. For the past thirteen years, the youth of the Basilica Shrine of St. Mary have embarked on a wonderful ministry of delivering poinsettias and Christmas cards to our sick and shut-in during the Advent season.

To help support this very important ministry we are selling 6-inch multiple bloom florist quality poinsettias. The $15 cost will be able to purchase one flower for you and one flower for our sick and shut-in. As always, once enough flowers have been purchased for our sick and shut-in, the remaining funds will go to the youth ministries of St. Mary.

The deadline for ordering is Tuesday, November 21st, and pickup of the flowers will be from 10 a.m.- noon, Saturday Dec. 2nd in the Tileston building. Order forms may be found in the front of the church, at the parish office or on the parish website.

Please prayerfully consider purchasing a poinsettia to help support the St. Mary youth and their endeavors. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help you.

In Christ,

John Walsh
Basilica Shrine of St. Mary, Director of Religious Education
