Less than one month away and we STILL are in need of a chair person for the American area and a co-chair for the Vegas area. Can you PLEASE ask a family member, friend, or neighbor if they would be interested in being a Chairperson for our festival. There are so many wonderful times and great memories that you will be able to talk about for a long time.

|Festival Work-n-Play and Country Store Booth|
It's soon going to be Festival time once again, and once again, we are asking for donations for the Work'n Play booth. We need gift cards of any denomination, games, toys, sporting equipment, small kitchen appliances, household goods, gift baskets, tools, and outdoor tools.
All items must be new and in original packaging. If you received a gift for Christmas that you'll never use, we'd be happy to make good use of it, so please consider making a donation to this extremely popular booth.
Right now we are very low on donations of tools and gift cards.
Anything you can do to help us would be greatly appreciated.
Festival Country Store Booth
The festival will be here before you know it so it’s time to start our collection of donations for the Country Store Booth. We would like to begin with donations of paper products, such as paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, snack bags and sandwich bags. Boxes will be placed at all of the Church entrances for you to place your donations.
Thanks so much ~ Camille Grindstaff

|St. Sebastian Homebound Visitors|
Volunteers Needed to take Holy Communion to Homebound
We are in desperate need of Parishioners willing to take the Holy Eucharist to our Homebound and ill brothers and sisters. For a variety of reasons (illness, accidents, relocation), we have lost a good number of our volunteers. Sadly, at this time, we have no volunteers available.
We have a large parish filled with wonderful people who are always willing to give. Won’t you PLEASE consider this important ministry? It only takes about a half hour of your time. We will train you and help you along the way. If you already take Communion to someone, would you please consider helping out and adding another Parishioner to your visit?
If you feel touched by the Holy Spirit and can help out where we really need you, please call the parish office and let Denise or Kim know.
Or call Roseann Gomez at 313-792-0617 and leave a message.
Thank you and may God bless you.
