HOW CAN I HELP?

We will need help from many parishioners in order to make our Mission a
success.  More involvement will make for a more fulfilling Mission experience.
We will need help with providing child care and refreshments during the
Mission week.  We will also need folks to help us during the Mission services
to serve as lectors, greeters, symbol carriers, etc.  If you can help us, please
contact Brian Niermann, Mission Chairperson at 826-4178, or by e-mail at
webmaster@maryhoc.org.  Thanks so much!
WHAT IS A PARISH MISSION?

The mission is an extraordinary preaching event.  God's Word is proclaimed
through the Bible and Catholic Doctrine.  It is also proclaimed through the
life, learning and personal experience of the preacher.

The mission services begin on Sunday night and end on Thursday night.  
Services last about one hour and fifteen minutes, give or take five or ten
minutes depending on attendance and other factors.  NO OTHER PARISH
ACTIVITIES OR EVENTS ARE TO BE SCHEDULED DURING THE MISSION.

Everyone 10 years of age and older is invited and encouraged to attend the
mission services.  Child care will be provided for those 3-9 years of age.  
Transportation will be provided for those unable to drive.  Light
refreshments will be served following the Mission services.

INVITE, INVITE, INVITE!  Invite your friends, neighbors, and anyone who you
think would enjoy the Mission.  Extend an offer to folks to come with you.
