Festival T-Shirt Sales: Tomorrow morning will be the last morning for Festival T-Shirt sales before school. New and past years’ t-shirts will be sold during Festival at the information booth.

Important Good Neighbor Policy: The excitement of Festival weekend is upon us! Every year while we enjoy the food, fun, and games at our Parish Festival, our local neighbors have families attending our event parking illegally, blocking their driveways and homes. Please remember: DO NOT park in any No-Parking Zones, Red Zones, Driveways, etc. We ask you all to please demonstrate the “Good Neighbor” policy this weekend and park legally, and with thought to our elderly parishioners as well who attend Saturday Mass. Let’s all get healthy and walk in from a distance giving them a close place to park. Additionally, please exit the parking lots and turn right as this will help us to maintain a manageable flow of traffic in and out of CTK.  Thank you and we will see you there!

Festival Signups:   We still need volunteers to sign up to help during Festival Weekend, especially Saturday night!!  Sign up at  Please note we are offering DOUBLE FUNDRAISING HOURS for cleanup shifts on Sunday from
8:00 - 10:30 a.m. and 10:30 - 1:00 p.m.

Stuffed Animals and Glassware: Please bring your donations to the school office lobby in a box or bag labeled “Festival.”


REQUEST FOR PRAYERS: Prayers are requested for Deacon John Ashmore as he recovers from surgery. For those who are sick, homeless, hungry, and without work. We pray for all those who work in Catholic education and we thank them for this valuable ministry to our church.
