Save the date - September 6, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
Featuring items both crazy fun and real value.
from Greek hilaros "cheerful, merry, joyous," related to hilaos "graceful, kindly," and hilaskomai meaning to “propitiate, reconcile, to comfort.”
It’ll be a hilarious auction this year and boy do we need it !!!
It will be ZOOM-ed starting at 7 p.m., beginning with a stand up comedian, who will then
be our auctioneer/emcee for the night.
It promises to be the most fun you’ll have all year.
Many of the offerings will be valued services and items as in the past, such as the famed Cajun Boil or the fabulous Monthly Desserts made-to-order.
Other items will be quite unusual and a whole lot of fun to bid on. We say no more cause we don’t want to spoil the surprise. It’s going to be a blast and one you can invite a whole lot of friends to join in the game.
We have a Fund the Need specific to our community: A Pro Kitchen!!!! Our facilities are used by Meals-on-Wheels five days a week and then regularly by a dozen other community groups. The current facility is on its last legs. Time for a reno!
More info coming. Stay Tuned. Save the date. Get ready for some hilarity.
Many thanks to Eva Lesniak for making this fun evening possible!
OOPS! And THANK YOU to those 12 teams, individuals and couples who participated in CHS Trivia Night !
This parishioner misconfigured the setup so that the Correct answer wasn't shuffled amongst the Multiple Choices . . . I appreciate those who texted me that every correct answer seemed to be A !!! I tried to manually shuffle things 2 or 3 questions ahead of the group to mix things up they way they should have been in the first place . . .
Apologies from this lifelong learner!
Educated by Tara Westover
Dear friends, Because of the many concerns about the coronavirus, I am wondering if we should postpone our meeting next Sunday to discuss, "Educated." At first, I thought we could come to CHS and meet, as there is not a big group. However, I'm reconsidering that idea, and I'd like to reschedule our discussion for later in April. However, I will need the books to return to the library.
If you agree with rescheduling, could you please bring your copies to CHS sometime this coming week (March 16-20), and I'll return them.
Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father’s junkyard.
Originally scheduled for February 23, immediately following the 10:00 worship service, Wes Jones from MDM Honduras was to be visiting CHS to share information about a possible mission trip in the works for next year (spring-summer 2021). This visit will be rescheduled. Meanwhile, pray for Wes and his family as they deal with their flooded home.
MDM Honduras (Missions of Divine Mercy Honduras) is a faith-inspired community development program that strives to bring hope, healing, and empowerment to people in the community of San Matias, Honduras, by organizing volunteers to work in a variety of areas. From their website, www.mdmhonduras.org ,
"Each and every team brings laborers to be the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus."
There is no age limit for this program; families and individuals are encouraged to come learn more on the 23rd. This trip offers a unique opportunity to connect with each other, and to connect with families from very different backgrounds that we might otherwise never meet. For more information, email Trish Simpson-Curtin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
