Parent Notice 1-31.18

Dear Parents:

I hope that everyone had a joy-filled holiday.  Now that we are getting back into the swing of things I have a few things to share with you.

The Catholic Forester’s and Faith Formation would like to thank all of you who brought back the green bags full of items to the Allamakee Food Pantry and Relief Office.  It was a great success!  The Catholic Forester’s will be giving a follow-up presentation tonight at 6:00 p.m.


Both sites adopted families at Christmas, thanks to all those who donated to that project.  We have generous parishioners!

Youth Mass for St. Ann-St. Joseph is February 11th at 10:00 a.m.  I hope to get more volunteers.  Students should arrive 15 minutes before Mass.

As the weather is starting to get cold and snowy, I need to remind parents of our weather protocol.  If school gets canceled, religion is canceled.  If we have to cancel and school doesn’t, I will try to get an announcement made at school and put in on KNEI radio and KWWL.  I have in the past started a call chain.  I will also put the cancelation on the answering machine.  The main point to remember is…use your best judgment!  If we have class and your roads are terrible, don’t chance it.  Stay home!  It’s not worth risking an accident.  Brigid Cota will be the contact person in Harpers.

First Communion will be April 21 at 5:30 p.m. in I.C. (Wexford), April 22 at I.C. (Lansing) at 10:00 a.m. and St. Joseph (New Albin) on April 29 at 8:30 a.m.  If parents have a scheduling issue please call Rita Mooney at 563-538-3933.
