NOTE FROM FR. JOHN: SAVE THE DATE!! On Sunday, September 16, 2018, we are planning a parish picnic at Pierson Park to kick off a series of festivities for our 125th Anniversary celebration in 2019. The picnic will be geared to the youth of our parish. Our plan is to use this occasion to jump start a parish youth program for our teens.
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION NEWS: We are in need of assistant teachers for the third grade on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:30 p.m. and 7th and 8th graders on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Classes run from the third week of September to the third week of May. Call Dotty Meehan at 914-552-7628 or email: email@example.com.
PARISH BARBEQUE: A special thank you to everyone who helped with last week’s BBQ. The turnout exceeded our expectations and brought together young and old for a good time together.
A special thanks goes to Jean Sudol; Ed Sudol, our cook, who grilled dozens of burgers and hot dogs along with David Impastato; Paul Heck, Doug, Steven and Maria Washburn and Jessica Scott for set up, serving and clean up. Also, Eli Impastato for creatively organizing food and service items.
HELP MAKE THE MAGDALENE RANK FIRST: Since September our ranking on Google has moved up from 4th to 2nd place, which makes it easier for people to find our church on the web, and maybe even become parishioners! Our ranking results from a combination of 5-star reviews on Google, plus our Google Ad, which has been viewed by over 17,000 people. To keep our rating from dropping there constantly needs to be new reviews, posts and picture. Would you consider writing a review about our parish on Google? It’s easy: go to Google Maps and enter Church of the Magdalene on the search line, as if to find our location. Then scroll down to Write a Review. When asked to rate COTM just click on the number of starts you feel our church rates. You can read all the reviews by doing a Google search for “Catholic Churches in Sleepy Hollow.” Please support this effort. Thank You!
