St. Michael's Parish invites everyone to a Family Day Retreat to be held on Sunday, June 3 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm at Our Lady of the Rosary Shrine in Merlin.  This is our Diocesan Shrine and it is located at 5773 10th Line Raleigh, Merlin-approximately 40 minutes from Leamington, just past Wheatley.

This is meant to be a fun afternoon for families to gather and spend time together.  Throughout the day you will have time for adoration, experience the Rosary, Saints, the Blessed Mary, and Stations of the Cross trails.

The children will have the opportunity to play "Name that Saint" game, participate in a nature scavenger hunt and have a rosary procession.

If you have never been to the Shrine, this is a wonderful opportunity to attend.  A free-will offering will be taken to be given as a gift to the Shrine for their upkeep.

For those who would like to carpool or follow others to the Shrine, please meet in St. Michael's Church parking lot at 1:00 pm.

If you plan to attend please RSVP to Veronica at the office or by email to vcosta@dol.ca so that we may know the number of people attending this day.

Please remember to bring any snacks that you and your family may need.
There will be a Mass of Thanksgiving on Tuesday, June 26 starting at 7:00 pm at St. Michael's Church.  This is a wonderful opportunity for you to bid farewell to Fr. John and Fr. Danny as they go and minister elsewhere.

A reception will follow in St. Michael's Church Hall.

We will also be having a Coffee Sunday on July 7 and July 8 after all the Masses as we welcome Fr. Tom and Fr. Steve to St. Michael's Parish.

Hope to see you there!
