Saint Bernadette Silver and Gold Society
President: Robert Finn
This group is for anyone and everyone 55 and over. All are welcome to join us. You do not have to belong to St. Bernadette's or be Catholic. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at St. Bernadette Catholic Church, 1005 Wilbon Rd., Fuquay Varina, NC 27592, in the parish hall at 12:45 p.m. for the purpose of a luncheon with information, companionship, recreation and spiritual topics.
Our next regular meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, and is scheduled to start at 12:45 PM at St. Bernadette Catholic Church social hall.
Your early arrival and assistance is needed to help us set up tables at about 12:00. The men especially are needed for this.
Lunch: Potluck style. All members attending are asked to please bring a main dish, salad or dessert of their choice. If members do not bring something the food can run out before everyone is served. If your dish contains nuts or shellfish (shrimp, lobster, etc.) please put a label noting that on the dish.
If possible, place an emphasis on the main dishes. This will ensure that all attendees will have an equal chance to enjoy all the courses available. (If you do not usually cook some examples of things to buy and bring are a roast chicken, pizza, salad.)
Thank you for your continued generosity in preparing this food for our pleasure.
Our Speaker(s) for May 10th will be: TBA
Please let us know of any specific programs or topics you would like to have our society learn more about through our monthly speakers.
Don’t forget to pick up your name tag on the way into the hall and return it before you leave.
Remember the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel every Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
Please remember our members who are ill or in need of prayers in your prayers.
Don’t forget the Knights of Columbus Bingo on Thursday nights at 7:00 p.m. in the Church Hall. Details are at kofcbingo.com. It is a fun night out.
The ladies at the St Bernadette's Church Pantry want to thank those who have donated food over months. Since Hurricane Matthew, we have seen a spike in the number of families coming to our pantry for help. These are local families. Some elderly, some single and some with children. The pantry buys food weekly and people donate weekly and yet, we ran very low the last two weeks.
We would like to ask each member to possibly bring in a box or can of food or more to the next meeting to help us meet the food needs of all these families. We can also use soap and tooth paste as well.
Thank you so much for helping our church pantry. JoAnn Baudais
The May meeting will be on Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
