Details forthcoming as we receive them. This will be the first Sunday TLM at St. Rose since the N.O. was introduced.
Mass is being scheduled for 12:00 noon, to be offered by Fr. Danber. Kankakee is approximately 60 miles south of Chicago.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: We will be serving a Mother’s Day meal immediately after Mass as a fund-raiser. The Mass, delicious, home-cooked food, piano entertainment! What else could a mother want? Keep the date open and plan on being there!
Tickets are now being sold for the Mother’s Day meal. Friends, let us know how many you can sell. We will see to it that you get them.
Mom’s and children under 12, $3; all others $7. All ticket sales will be included in a raffle.
Plans are also underway for a religious booth of items which can be had for a donation. Any donations of old rosaries, statutes, pre-VII books, medals, would be appreciated. You can be sure they will find a good home!
While all will be invited to the Mass, invitations to the chicken dinner are being extended first to those who have assisted at previous TLM’s at St. Rose. Feel free to purchase tickets for, or to notify interested family and friends with whom you would like to share the day.
All tickets sold will be included in a raffle. (What the item will be, I cannot tell.)
After March 26, dinner tickets will be sold to the general public. (Only 100 have been printed.
Update, March 31
As of today, approximately 52 meal tickets have been sold by word of mouth. Yesterday, publicity notices went out to area churches asking them to please insert the information in their bulletins. Fliers have been printed and are ready for distribution.
The Knights of Columbus wish to publicize the event in one of the busiest sections of downtown Kankakee. They have also offered to donate and bake the potatoes for us!
Two generous benefactors will be making a donation to provide for the meat, which will be ordered from one of the best restaurants.
What we need are donations of home-made deserts and salads, and your continued prayers!
Altar boy practice will be held on Saturday, May 7.
God bless, and thank you to all who are working hard to make this a successful event, all for the greater glory of God, to honor his Holy Mother, for the good of souls!
