OSO BENEFIT Spaghetti Dinner
Location: SJV Social Hall Date: Sunday, April 13 Time: Rotating 3:00pm-6:00pm

Cost: $20 adults & $10 children under 12
To clarify how we collected money for the Fundraiser in honor of victims in Oso, parishioners will be giving directly to our parish, St. John Vianney Church/Vashon. Our parish will then offer all of this money as a Gift/Donation to St. John Vianney Church in Darrington, Snohomish County, which will distribute the funds as it best determines to those negatively impacted by the mudslide in their area. Checks should be made out to our parish, St. John Vianney Church/Vashon.

Fr. Marc will be out of the office and parish on Monday April 21st and so there is no morning Mass that day.
CRS Rice Bowl - For Lent, For Life
Please bring your Rice Bowl Lenten donations to Mass on Holy Thursday. Fr. Marc would like to have people bring them to the altar during Mass. If you can't attend Mass on Holy Thursday, there will be a basket in the vestibule on Easter Sunday. You contributions do make a difference. Thank you for your generosity. Checks should be made out to St. John Vianney - note “CRS Rice Bowl” in the memo.
