 Name the Baby Elephant!

  • Congratulations to 4th Grader, Sophia Hughes, who was one of three chosen from 15,000 for her submission of the name “Rocket”, as a suggestion for the name of the new baby elephant at the Louisville Zoo.
  • The zoo is now inviting the public to vote on their favorite name until Oct. 20th by visiting the zoo and dropping coins or bills into the naming kiosk near the elephant area, where Mikki and her calf are on exhibit from 10 a.m. to noon on most days.
  • Votes can also be made as donations on the zoo’s website, where daily updates on Mikki and baby are posted.

1st Responders Prayer:

God of all, we pray for those who respond at the first call,
For those who rush toward danger, bringing hope and comfort;
For those who serve, protect and guide others to safety.
Keep them in Your care and safely protect them as they follow Your command to love their neighbors.

Amen

S_CA_pull_tabs  PULL TABS

  • Thank you to all those that continue saving and turning in the pulls tabs for the summer cancer camp for kids. Carver’s great grandmother brought in over 40 pounds!
  • Did you know that Kids Cancer Alliance now provides 56 recreation and support programs and serves more than 300 local families fighting childhood cancer each year?  Some of Kids Cancer Alliance’s programs include Indian Summer Camp, Family Retreat, Teen Weekender, In-Hospital Programs, Quarterly events and many more.  These programs give children with cancer and their families a chance to  come together, have fun, and build community with other families like them while getting away from hospitals and treatment.  Along with recreational programs, Kids Cancer Alliance also provides important financial support to those families, such as financial assistance, transportation assistance, survivor scholarships, and bereavement funding.  Thus, Kids Cancer Alliance is able to not only provide fun, but also provide assistance to help families during financially tough situations.  All of Kids Cancer Alliance’s programs are provided at no cost to the families, so they are dependent on our wonderful support.
  • Indian Summer Camp uses the collection of aluminum can tabs as one of their fund raisers.
  • These may be turned in any time to the school office.

parish news
