Saint Francis de Sales will welcome a special blessing to honor the anniversary mass | Local News
Members of the Altar Society of St. Francis de Sales Parish will perform a special blessing at their anniversary mass at 9:00 am on September 26 at the parish, 148 W. Main St. in Lac Léman.
The group will celebrate its 125 years.
Since the establishment of the Altar Society in 1896, generations of women have volunteered their time to clean the altar and shrine at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, provide food, serve funeral lunches, and cook and sell items.
The alter society meets in January, April, and September to plan events, approve expenses, and support the evangelical and spiritual needs of the parish.
The group provides baptismal bibs for baptisms, keeps an display of annual baptisms on ornate parchment, organizes hospitality Sundays, purchases hosts and wine for Holy Communion at all Masses and for those confined to the home and sponsor the apostolate of the seven sisters.
