       The Unity Campaign in Frederick each year supports non-profit agencies who assist our most vulnerable neighbors.  One of those non-profits is our own St. Vincent de Paul Society, who can be designated as a recipient of your contribution.  Please consider this option when contributing to the Unity Campaign this month.  A bulletin insert this week provides a donation form for your convenience.

       If your parish group or committee would like to use space in any of our buildings during the next fiscal year (starting in July), please submit your space requests by 31 March to Rachel Murtha in the Parish Office, as we will soon start working on our building-use calendar for next year (in collaboration with Saint John Regional School.)  The Facility Request Form can be found on our website at saintdrexel.org.

       On Saturday 18 March in McElroy Hall, someone will be calling out “BINGO” whenever they have won a cash prize at our Knights of Columbus Bingo Night.  You can get tickets after Mass in the narthex or call the parish office by Tuesday of that week if you plan to attend.  You have to play to win…

       The Frederick 40 Days for Life prayer campaign continues through 2 April.  Our parish takes part on Thursday afternoons, and so please use the contact info in the bulletin to participate in this witness to life.

       As I announced last weekend, an Easter season Parish Mission is planned for 23-25 April 2023 with the theme “Seeing with Easter Eyes.”  There will be 7:00 PM sessions on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evening that week.  Please mark your calendar for these dates and plan to attend.  Thanks to our Adult Faith Formation Committee for planning this event. 

       The Easter flowers that grace our altar area for many weeks in the spring are always a welcome sight after the starkness of winter.   Please use the flower envelope in your packet sometime this month to help us decorate in the joy of the upcoming resurrection season.
