It’s less than a week until the SausageFest at St. Joan of Arc! The Saturday, September 11th festivities will mark the 53rd Anniversary of this great SJA tradition. The fun goes from 5pm – 11pm. Enjoy the food, drinks, desserts, music, raffle and kids games!
Some of you are already aware that Fr. Greg Benkowski, former Pastor and now Senior Associate at St. Joan of Arc, officially retired in January. At the end of July, he will be moving to Wisconsin to be closer to family. His last Mass will be on July 24th at 5pm. If you know him at all, he doesn’t like to have a lot of attention directed towards him, which is why we haven’t made any early announcements, but in this final month he’ll have to put up with our saying goodbye and thanking him for his faithful service to our parish and archdiocese.
St. Joan of Arc Parish would like to set aside some time after the 5pm Mass on Saturday, July 17th to say goodbye and wish him all the best. After the Mass, we will have a reception with pizza and drinks in the gym. If you are not able to be present at the reception, please consider sending him a card, which can be mailed to the St. Joan of Arc address – 7430 Hascall St. Omaha, NE 68124.
You can help with the success of the Garage Sale by displaying a sign in your year. Signs are available in the Gathering Area for you to pick up to advertise our parish garage sale June 3-5. Please take one or more signs and spread them around town…at your home, work or business. Just make sure you ask first. Signs must be placed off the city right-of-way (between the sidewalk and street) then picked up and returned to church after the sale.
Got some items you want to donate? Garage sale drop off and pricing is May 27-June 2 (no drop off on Memorial Day May 31) and the sale is June 3-5.
We need lots of help. The volunteer sign-up sheet is in the Gathering Area. We need both adult and student volunteers. This is a great way to get volunteer hours for school. In order for this sale to be successful, we need everyone’s help to get the word out.
Proceeds from the sale will be used to purchase books and supplies for St. Joan of Arc school. Thank you in advance for your help and support.
