Each year we are blessed to be part of a fund raising effort in conjunction with the Virginia Tech football games. We make pizza! Yes, that’s right, we make pizza for the concession stands to sell! We don’t handle any money, all we do is arrive at the stadium about 4 hours before the game starts, make the pizza’s, (and have fun while doing it) and normally finish and out of the stadium by halftime! Can’t get much better than this… There are 7 games his year which will raise $5250. Please look at your calendars and make plans to help -- the VT games are just around the corner!
It takes about 12 people for each game. Sign-up begins July 26/27 in the Narthex.
Please contact Sandi Merrix, with questions: 540-239-3397, email@example.com.
Thank you for your support of St. Mary’s Parish!

is focused on Personal Encounters with Jesus Christ.
Please share your story!
Give you name (or not) and e-mail to Barbara MacDonald: firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop it in the colorful box in the Narthex. It could be a simple encounter with Jesus, a mini-miracle or a magnificent one. Your fellow parishioners would love to hear yours.
As received, these personal encounters will be published in the Bulletin, and later, a Christmas & Easter gift for visitors.
