KID’S CORNER: All families are invited to coffee and donuts following the 10:00am Sunday Masses, but what do your children do after their donut treat??? Starting on Sunday, July 9th for six weeks children can come to the “Kid’s Corner” in the parish hall for crafts, movies and summer fun. If you would like to join in the fun, contact Irene Fritzler, firstname.lastname@example.org , or call the parish office and ask for Irene (970) 242-6121.
Our children grow in faith each week as they attend Mass with their parents and family. Along with parents setting the best example of Catholic family life, there will also be a basket of blue envelopes in the narthex for your child/children to include their offerings weekly. Help your child by filling out the “I HELPED THIS WEEK TO” section on the envelope, and deposit it in the collection basket at Mass. Here they can describe their best efforts at home or school. If they choose to include any donations, let them know that it will benefit the children’s programs here at IHM. Thank You! You can learn more by emailing Irene Fritzler , email@example.com , or call the parish office and ask for Irene (970) 242-6121.
