       Our photo sessions start this week for the 2022 edition of our parish photo directory, and it won’t be complete with you!  Please take a moment to sign up for one of the appointment times that is still available this week (Tuesday through Saturday).  In case you are away on vacation this week, you can also sign up for an appointment in July.  You will receive a complimentary 8×10 photo and a free directory for participating.

       This Friday is the deadline for registering your child(ren) for our Vacation Bible School taking place in McElroy Hall (in the school building) each morning from 27 June to 1 July.  There is a limit on how many children we can accept, so please do not wait until the last minute– use our website (www.saintdrexel.org) to register. Thanks to all those who came forward to volunteer for this program last weekend.  

       Through our poor box donations, we are in collaboration with five neighboring Catholic parishes in supporting the ministry of the Saint Vincent de Paul Regional Conference in Frederick.  This year we funneled those donations to SVdP through the Unity Campaign so that they would also receive a matching grant. A thank you letter for your poor box donations is included in the bulletin this weekend.

       The Saint Katharine Drexel Knights of Columbus Council is so grateful for your support of their recent Baby Bottle campaign, which netted over $2700 to benefit the life-giving ministry of CareNet here in Frederick.  And we are so grateful for the generous service of the Knights of Columbus in preparing and serving our annual Pentecost Breakfast last weekend!

       Our Environmental Stewardship Committee is currently organizing our second clean-up day along the portion of Opossumtown Pike that our parish adopted on Saturday 25 June.  You can sign up to join the fun next weekend in the narthex after all the Masses, or by scanning the code in the bulletin.
