Land of happily ever after
A huge THANK YOU to Mrs. Joann Papa and Mrs. Tina Grant for spearheading, organizing, and bringing to life The Land of Happily Ever After! And a huge Thank You to the kids of 7th and 8th grade PSCF who participated in this event along with our Celebration Team! Tons of work go into this event and the time allotted us is always limited. I am so grateful for all of the help, the dedication and the fun that goes into this event. It is a witness to charity and to Our friendship in Christ!
Weekend of 10/5 & 10/6
Thanks to all who were a part of the Pet Blessing! May St. Francis watch over our pets and share with them every blessing from above!
Weekend of 9/28 & 9/29
Sometime after I arrived at St. Colette, I hired Sabrina Plumb as a ’helper’ in the Office. Soon she became familiar with nearly every facet of Parish Life and has become a familiar face and name to most of the parish! Some years back she met Thomas at one of our Youth Group Meetings and the Magic Happened! Congratulations to Sabrina and Thomas on their Wedding (Saturday, September 28), and may all their dreams come true! BLESSINGS & JOY!
Weekend of 9/21 & 9/22
Holy Name society car show
We had beautiful weather and a great turnout for the Holy Name Society’s 7th Annual Car Show. Thanks to everyone who made this event a success!
Weekend of 9/14 & 9/15
My gratitude to all those who joined us on 9/11—especially our ‘heroes’ in the military and first responders. The evening provided us an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ for the valiant sacrifices these men and women made and make on a daily basis. The evening also allowed us to come together in prayer and supplication for our Nation and our world. May God bless the U.S.A.
Weekend of 9/7 & 9/8
We’ve heard from Father Julius!
He is doing his best to join us in late September—early October. We have sent an official letter of invite and he is in the process of obtaining his visa. He calls his visit to us as a continuation of his ‘fattening course’! His letter to us included how much he misses the ‘good people’ of St. Colette and how eager he is to spend some time with us.
Hoping all goes smoothly for him in the process as we look forward to his visit with us once more!
Presently he is assigned to St. Anthony Parish in Birmingham, England. He remains a priest of the Diocese of Mamfe in the Cameroon.
Weekend of 8/31 & 9/1
As we come to September we also come to the invitation to pause on 9/11 to remember and to petition the Father for Peace on our earth. I personally invite you to consider joining us on September Eleventh for a special prayer service in remembrance and honor. For those of us who spent that day in 2001 the memories may be fading but the reality and the aftermath continues in so many different ways. We need peace! We need to work for peace in our own small ways. We need to remember the countless lives that have been lost since that day—most especially our sons and daughters in the Military. While 2001 is already history we live the present realities which are changing our world on a daily basis. There is such a strong anti-God, anti-Religion, prevalent in our nation that has become contagious. We, people of Faith, must turn our reliance on a God who is Peace itself.
Please consider joining us for that brief time on 9/11 to pray with us.
Following our service we will host a light reception in the atrium, Remember you need not be a member of the parish to join us—don’t hesitate to invite friends or neighbors. Together we are a visible sign of the Peace which Christ left us.
Weekend of 8/24 & 8/25

St. Colette now has two different statues of St. Colette available for purchase. They have been specially made in France for the Poor Clare Colettine Sisters. The sisters have graciously made it possible for us to sell them. We have these statues for sale in our Lily and Grace Gift Shop. They are both 13” high. One is a hand painted statue that sells for $50.00, and one that is a natural color for $40.00. If you are interested in buying one, stop in the office or call!
