We are in need of good quality baskets large enough for a variety of items, whatever the theme.  If you can help, please drop off at the Rectory office or in the large box marked “BASKETS” in the Church vestibule.  Thanks in advance for your help

If you are looking to donate items for the baskets, here are the themes:

  • Additional St. Augustine Parish Picnic Raffle tickets are available on the bookrack in the vestibule of the church.  We are asking each family to try and sell at least four tickets each.  This will help to defray the cost of the picnic.  Tickets are $10.00 each with a chance to win $5,000.  Keep in mind the first early bird drawing for $100 will be Sunday, July 27 and the second drawing Sunday, August 3.  Tickets are being sold following all Masses up until the picnic.  The grand prize will be drawn on the day of the picnic, winner need not be present.  Please help us make this picnic as special as those in the past.
  • Don’t forget about the Basket Raffle this year.  Donations of items are still being accepted at the Rectory.  Think of some fun things that you would like to see in a completed basket.  If you send them to the  Rectory we will assemble them into marvelous baskets to raffle at the picnic.  Then we’ll see who wins the finished prizes.  The success of this raffle is up to you!
