Re-live Fall Fest 2016! See our uploaded pics from Friday night.
Other than a few short minutes of light rain, we opened on time and had an awesome crowd between the carnival rides, beer/drink tent, and entertainment stage. The Millennials kicked things off and Infinity helped to close out the night. Thanks to both for contributing to an awesome Friday evening!
Fall Fest opened with wonderful weather! With St. Cletus School students being off on Friday, they enjoyed short lines for rides. The drink tent was jumping while we aired an NFL game on a 65″ TV (available to win!). The Mid Knights opened the entertainment stage with DJ Chuck Luna (Luna C) spinning a variety of tunes to close out the night. (Many photos courtesy of Sara Hodak Photography. Thanks, Sara!!)
Following a formal ground breaking ceremony on June 25, trees were removed the following week and bulldozers began excavation on July 5.
The Holy Name Society promotes respect for the most Holy Name of God, faith in the Catholic Church and its teaching authority, and loyal respect to both our civil and religious responsibilities.
Our chapter of Holy Name Society began when the parish was established in October 1951. Our chapter is a branch of a world-wide fraternity of the church, which began more than 700 years ago. In its first seven centuries, the Society has helped to foster the salvation of souls. Membership in the Society can offer faith-filled men a chance to serve with an organization that has become the voice of Catholic men, — and potentially, enrich their lives.
HNS sponsors a Thanksgiving turkey raffle, a Christmas dinner party, a Pancake Breakfast in springtime, and a Past Presidents’ Dinner in May. The HNS group often helps support other activities of the parish such as the Fourth of July veteran’s Mass and Food Pantry programs, as well as other organizations such as the Mission Ladies and the Ministry of Care.
It is time that we reaffirm our parishioner base as we go forth with planning for the future role of St. Cletus in our community. It is not only important that we identify you, but also set up ways that we can connect with you as well.
In today’s world, the exchange of information is truly facilitated with modern technology. Throughout our parish family, sharing thoughts and ideas are necessary for the vibrant culture that we wish to attain at St. Cletus. We have a lot to share at St. Cletus! The ministries, the school, the events, the people!
The Compasionate Care Ministry helps to cope with the lost of a loved on. Hear how the ministry touches those in their time of need:
“During a time like this we realize how much our family and friends really mean to us. Your expression of sympathy will always be remembered. Dear Jerry: Thank you so much for your very nice compassionate service at Hallowell & James for our family. We really appreciated it.”
“Dear St. Cletus Compassionate Care Ministry, I write this note with great appreciation for your lovely sympathy card and beautiful basket you prepared for myself and my little ones. I feel truly humbled and greatly blessed by all the support and generosity. Please know that your prayers and warm thoughts are carrying me day by day.”
If you had a chance to visit the Ministry Fair in February, you no doubt saw how many different ministries make up our parish.
