St. Isidore Parish                                    Announcements

A heartfelt thank you to Therese McCarragher for her donation of $1361.51 to the Stemper Co. for the restoration of the chalice and ciborium (and lid) that have been at St. Pat’s a number of years and that     Fr. Paul used for his Silver Jubilee Mass.  Also, a thank you to St. Pat’s CCW for the donation of $498.90 for the restoration of the second set (chalice and ciborium) that is newer that we have.


A huge thank you to Coplien Painting (Monroe) for completing the exterior painting of the church and steeple.  They did it for half price from the original bid, absorbed the cost of the lull, charged for only one door instead of the three to paint and put on a higher grade of paint for the exterior work than what was in the bid.  All restoration work is now completed for what we had bids on.     Ann Johnsrud

St. Isidore uses a program called Flocknote to communicate with parishioners, via e-mail and text message, regarding cancellations that are weather related, etc. If you are not receiving these communications, it is because either Flocknote does not have your correct e-mail address, or cell phone number, or does not have either listed.
