St. Patrick Festival Coordinators Needed
The St Patrick Festival committee is looking for a few people to take over smaller parts of the festival as we have members stepping down. We are looking to fill Raffle ticket and Carnival/game coordinators. We have team members that are able to assist and provide quality turnover and resources for you to continue the processes that are already in place. Another option that was suggested is a 5k fun run at the beginning of the day to kick off the festival weekend. Please contact Nic or Leah Bethune for more information. 402-432-2042 or 402-432-2384. Thank you.

The Holy Family Prayer
JESUS, Son of God and Son of Mary, bless our family. Graciously inspire in us the unity, peace, and mutual love that you found in your own family in the little town of Nazareth.
MARY, Mother of Jesus and Our Mother, nourish our family with your faith and your love. Keep us close to your Son, Jesus, in all our sorrows and joys.
JOSEPH, Foster-father to Jesus, guardian and spouse of Mary, keep our family safe from harm. Help us in all times of discouragement or anxiety.
HOLY FAMILY OF NAZARETH, make our family one with you. Help us to be instruments of peace. Grant that love, strengthened by grace, may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trials through which our families sometimes pass. May we always have God at the center of our hearts and homes until we are all one family, happy and at peace in our true home with you. Amen.
