We’ve had a lot of success already reserving tickets to the film Unprotected, but we still need to get 52 more tickets reserved before the screening is confirmed.  Please think about reserving a ticket (or several) and inviting friends, family or friars along!  The flyer is attached as well in case you have someplace to post it.  Maybe even prominently on your wall at home before your next party? That’s what I’m doing….  But really, if you think it’s important to share the message of Humanae Vitae with the public here in Columbus, please consider supporting the film.  If we don’t get a total of 78 tickets reserved by 10/11, there will be nowhere to watch it in Ohio still!

Mass and Dinner Tonight + Cards for Fr. Jerome

Hello All,

We were glad to see so many turn out for the trash clean up service event on 8/5!  All who went agreed that the ice cream was well worth the work beautifying our city, and it felt so good to make a difference in Hilltop!  If you’d like to go back or missed our outing this month, Rachel from Cream and Sugar is taking volunteers again at noon on 9/2 to clean up litter. Let us know if you need more information about what to expect or want to be connected with others who may return.

Please join us for more events this month!  We’ve added more detail to the board game night at Tabletop Game Cafe and the swing dance night, and we’re looking forward to trying out Pat and Gracie’s dinner menu after Mass for the Solemnity of the Assumption this Wednesday.

Cards for Fr. Jerome:

Fr. Jerome, a Dominican friar from St. Patrick’s and our former Frassati chaplain, is in need of some written sunshine. With the recent passing of his mother and his own personal health in the healing process, we wanted to send him some kind thoughts and well wishes. Write an encouraging Bible quote, a short, thoughtful message, or even draw him a big smiley face on a notecard, and we’ll send him out a positive notecard package! You can give your card to Mary Dannemiller or any other core team member at any Frassati event this month or make one when we go to Table Top (supplies will be provided)! It’s such a simple way to show we care.
