Meeting Jan 17th – Hoagie Orders Due

We encourage all Holy Sepulcher parishioners to consider joining our Patzun Mission Group Meeting this Sunday, January 17th at 7pm in the Church Conference Room.  It’s not about traveling to Guatemala…it’s about providing financial and spiritual support for the school in Patzun.  Our focus now is fundraising…sending money to the school to help them pay for their teachers and make necessary building improvements.  Our Fair Trade Sale was very succesful, our hoagie sale is underway and we are looking for creative, unique ways to raise money.  It is also important to us that the people of Holy Sepulcher become more familiar with the daily life, the environment and the needs of the Patzun Mission.  If you can volunteer any amount of time or have ideas for involving more people in the support of the Patzun Mission, we invite YOU to come to our monthly meetings.

Our meeting will be very informative as we discuss a possible Water Filtration Project for Patzun, the results of the Fair Trade Market and other new ideas. 

You can make a difference right now…you don’t have to belong to the Mission Group…help us sell hoagies!  A 12″ hoagie for $6 is a great deal for a meal and you can choose from Ham & Cheese, Turkey & Cheese, Italian or Pizza Hoagies.  Use the Order Form below to get PAID orders from your co-workers, friends and family and turn it in at the table in the Narthex at Mass this weekend.  Your extra effort will allow us to send more dollars to Patzun!
