Wow, what a strange few months we have had! From what I am hearing and reading, while things are starting to open back up, we will have a lot of restrictions and necessary social distancing for the foreseeable future. With that reality, I made the difficult decision to cancel the annual parish festival that was scheduled for August 6 – 9, 2020. There are just too many unknowns and potential restrictions that make it too risky, both from a health and safety point of view for volunteers and guests, as well as from a financial standpoint. We have scheduled the 2021 Festival for August 12 – 15, 2021.
The parish festival is the primary fundraiser for our school. Fortunately, we are able to move ahead with one of the major events of the festival: our Grand Prize raffle! This raffle provides the opportunity to win a number of prizes, including a top prize of $10,000. Tickets can be found at the front desk of the parish office. Ticket stubs may be returned to the school or parish office, mailed to us, or dropped in the weekly collection. You can purchase tickets online at https://brurl.co/LNXYNKX9. The Top Student Seller will win a prize of a $500 Amazon Gift Card. To the next top 5 sellers, we will present a $50 Amazon Gift Card. ALSO, DON’T FORGET, IF THE WINNING TICKET IS SOLD BY AN SRW STUDENT, HE/SHE WILL RECEIVE FREE TUITION FOR THE ENTIRE 2020 – 2021 SCHOOL YEAR.
The winners of the raffle will be drawn on Sunday, August 9 at Noon. The drawing will take place outside the Church and also online so people can watch virtually. If you live in the state of Ohio, you can buy tickets online. We will have a link on the homepage of our website: www.srweuclid.cc.
God bless you, and be assured of my continued prayers.
