We have instituted a new Gathering Group for those in the 21-30s age group. As the parish continues to grow we are noticing more and more of the millennial generation—singles, newly married, married with children. Up to now we have had no outreach to that particular age-group and as the numbers increase we believe that is a genuine priority. This is not a study group, a Bible class, nor a problem-solving group—it is a non-committal, no pressure‘gathering of young adults who are a vital part of Church and an important part of our parish Family.
Our next meeting is Sunday, May 21 at 7PM. If you are home on college-break, or able to join us from work or school or get a baby-sitter please stop in. Refreshments provided and the Fellowship is Free!
We call it Source & Summit because as Vatican II told us, ‘Eucharist is the source and summit of all Christian Life.’ (Lumen Gentium #11)
More information call the Parish Office and leave a message for Josh Soldat—he’ll be sure to get back to you!
The next Baptism Class will be held here at St. Colette, we combine baptism classes with St. Ambrose so every other month we switch off with them.
Diocesan Policy requires attendance at a Baptism Class for parents who are planning to present their first child for the Sacrament of Baptism.
To register please call the parish office at 330-273-5500

St. Colette has teamed up with Easter Seals for a stuff the truck event with the Rummage Sale! A “stuff the truck” event is simply that; Easter Seals will leave a truck here for us to stuff with cloth material and other select items. These are items we cannot sell at the Rummage Sale but Easter Seals will gladly collect them and recycle them. So, as you are doing some winter cleaning and making boxes for the Rummage Sale, if there are items you feel are in bad shape and can’t be sold-simply put them in a box or a tied bag and label it “Easter Seals” and we will put it in the truck. You can bring these items when you drop off for the rummage sale or bring them the weekend of the sale (June 23-25). The truck will be parked outside the hall and ready to fill. Once the truck is filled we get a check based on the weight of the collected items and if we fill one truck Easter Seals will bring out another! The more trucks we fill and the more treasures we sell at the Rummage Sale, the more our youngest parishioners in Catholic school benefit. Please consider decluttering and helping us raise funds for Catholic Education!
Items accepted for Stuff the Truck: Stained or torn Cloth items (clothes, blankets, sheets, table cloths, purses, backpacks, towels, cloth lunchboxes and backpacks, etc.), gently used stuffed animals and Dishes/kitchenware (This includes small appliances such as mixers, blenders, crock pots, toasters, coffee pots, waffle makers, etc. NO MICROWAVES.) Small picture frames/wall hangings, Small kids’ toys/games, Knickknacks, Jewelry, CDs/DVDs/VHS tapes.
Items NOT Accepted for Rummage Sale or Stuff the Truck: TV’s, Computers and Christmas Trees. We will not be able to provide pick up of any items.
VBS is July 10-14!
VBS is for children who are going into pre-kindergarten through 4th grade for the 2017-2018 school year.
Your child will get to make friends, grow closer to Jesus and learn more about their faith through music, skits, activity, snack, craft and classroom lessons. This truly is a fun week for everyone involved. We hope you will consider joining us!
