BON-TON COMMUNITY DAYS - NOV. 8th-11th

*****FUNDRAISER FOR CHAIR-RAIL LIFT*****

The Bon-Ton Community Days event is held twice a year to help raise funds for local non-profit organizations in the community by selling Bon-Ton coupon booklets. This year's 4-day shopping event will occur on November 8th - 11th. 

The booklets cost $5 each and contain over $500 worth of coupons--including a $10 off any purchase for use in-store or on-line. The coupons in the booklet can be used at any Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, or Younkers store, or on-line for purchases of regular, sale price and clearance items. 

Holy Ghost is participating in the Bon-Ton Community Days to raise funds for a Chair-Rail Lift estimated to cost $3,000. The Chair-Rail Lift will be installed at the front of the church, to help parishioners and guests attend services who have difficulty traversing steps.

Please consider purchasing one or more booklets to directly help Holy Ghost raise funds for the Chair-Rail Lift. A full 100% of the proceeds from booklet sales goes directly to Holy Ghost.

Booklets can be purchased at Holy Ghost Church or through our on-line booklets sales link: http://bit.ly/2uLCTMX

For those booklets purchased on-line through Holy Ghost's sales link, they will be mailed to your home at no cost! Thank you for your generous support and happy shopping!

MEMORIAL DAY 2016

As we celebrate with friends, family and community during Memorial Day weekend, Holy Ghost would like to encourage all of us to remember that Memorial Day is dedicated to those Americans who have fallen while serving in our nation's military to preserve our freedoms, our way of life, and our nation.

   

May our Memorial Day include honoring those who have died in the service of our country.  May Our Lord grant them rest in the bosom of Abraham and number them among the chosen! May their memory be eternal!
