Attention Ladies of the Parish

The HOLY CROSS PARISH ALTAR SOCIETY is being reactivated! Mark your calendars for an open house kick-off event on Saturday, May 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the school gym. Drop in any time and stay as long as you wish—bring your mother, daughter, girl friend. Participate in various activities occurring throughout the day:

- Register as a member of the Altar Society ($5 annual dues)
- Browse displays to learn about different parish ministries and sign up to help if you wish
- Participate in make-and-take events such as rubber stamping/card making or make your own rosary (Fr. Tom will bless them at the weekend Masses)
- Enjoy a chair massage for just $1 per minute from Tranquility Spa or Erica Majeski
- Listen to presentations by representatives of Baylake Bank on the following important topics:

10:30 a.m. Protecting Yourself From Identity Theft & Scams
11:30 a.m.
Investing Wisely
1:00 p.m. Budgeting/Debt Reduction

- Enjoy refreshments served throughout the day
- Do you sew? Drop of a 6x6 cotton quilt square in the pattern of your choice, and the Prayer Shawl Ministry will sew them together and make a sampler quilt to be auctioned off at the parish picnic (examples can be found on a board in the church entrance—no drawings, glitter, etc. please).
- Do you knit or crochet? Drop off a 6x6 block, and the Prayer Shawl Ministry will put them to-gether to make an afghan to be auctioned off at the parish picnic—your choice of pattern.

It was suggested that the “Altar Society” name is a bit out-dated. So, we are holding a “Rename the Altar Society” contest. Voting will take place on May 9. Two names have been suggested:
“Women With a Mission” or “Divine Assistants”

We look forward to seeing you for this day of fun and fellowship! If you are able to bake a dozen cookies for this event, please drop them off in the gym at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning.
