As we all know and are rejoicing, the Annual Bazaar is now over. It was a great success due to the hard work of so many volunteers.
Thank you to Alexis Sclama, our Bazaar Chairperson, and to Barbara Glass, the Assistant  Chairperson. Also, thank you to each of the captains and their teams. Its truly amazing that so many people step forward to help the bazaar run smoothly and be such a great success. Again, thank you to all those who worked or contributed in anyway to make the bazaar a big success.
Also, remember that next year will be the 40th Annual Bazaar. I am sure that Alexis will have something special planned to celebrate this milestone.
I remind you that this Thursday, August 15, is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is a holy day of obligation. Masses for the Holy Day are as follows: 7PM Vigil, Wednesday, August 14 at St. Ann; 8:30AM and 4PM at St. Ann on Thursday, August 15; 5:30PM at Our Lady of Guadalupe on Thursday August 15. Please join us to honor our Blessed Mother, the mother of Jesus and our Mother.
