Report from Parish Pastoral Council

1. CARNIVAL
The upcoming Carnival on June 25, 26, 27, is being sponsored by Parish Pastoral Council. Every group in our Parish Community is being represented by having a booth/tent in the Food Concession. It was requested by the Pastor, Fr. Stan, to decorate our booth with Filipino accent, featuring our own culture and our tradition. It is our time to “showcase” our expertise in food and in decoration. Please help Terry Padua and Violeta Angara in the decoration of the booth. The foods that we would like to sell are only limited to: lumpiang shanghai, fried rice and barbeque pork.

We are looking for donors of the above items. We limit our choice of food because of the requirements by the City Board of Health. Application for permit was so rigid that they want us to specify in the application the ingredients, the way it would be cooked and how it would be prepared. It is like applying to be a vendor at Taste of Chicago.


2. RAFFLE TICKETS
If you received your raffle tickets, please remit your payment as soon as you can. The Carnival Committee needs financial help in order to meet all requirements by the City. We just depend on donations to make this event happens. Please be generous. Some of the members had pitched- in financial donations to cover the First Prize of $1,000 of the Raffles. Thanks for the generosity of the following:
Lino/Vicky - $100 Tony/Josie Bautista - $100 Tony Soriano - $100
Juliana Bibay - $100 Angel/Cora Jimenez - $100 Butch/Nini Centeno - $100
David/Karla Huston - $100 CJ/Rachelle Centeno - $100 Dom/Terry Padua - $50
Santy/Rosie Evangelista - $50 Edgar/Florie Nilayan - $50 Guada/Magda Salazar -$50
Violeta Angara - $50 Joe/Fe Gavilan- $50 Rudy/Sofie del Rosario-?

(Names of those who made pledge early were featured in the insert of our bulletin last Sunday)
I am still short by $900 so if some of you could sacrifice some of your blessings, the committee would appreciate very much. Please make your check payable to St Hedwig Church so that you could use it as tax deductions in your income tax. If you need letter, we could always furnish you.

I know that during this time, everything is very tight in our budget…..but God knows what is in our heart. He will repay your goodness a thousand fold. Anyway, the Blessings we get is His….we are just managing them. Please remember, we do all these for the Glory of God.

It is through the generosity of donors/benefactors/parishioners like you that we are able to offer religious services and programs to our youth, children as well as the adults. Please remember, there is no small donation. Everything is welcomed regardless of what is the amount.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND YOUR GENEROSITY.


3. SCHEDULE
Terry Padua will be submitting the schedule of the volunteers to the Carnival Committee at the meeting on June 15th. I understand some members have expressed the day and time they are available to come. If for some reasons, you will not be able to come and help, your generous donation in cash or kind is very much appreciated. (Beggars are not choosers)

4. PROCEEDS OF THE CARNIVAL
The proceeds of the Carnival are for the Pastoral Projects/Ministries of our Parish for adults, youth and children’s programs.

God Bless You All!
Nini Centeno
Chairman- Parish Pastoral Council
