Pastor's Corner: September 18
Chalk it up to beginner’s luck if you like. I’m talking about praying for good weather for the carnival. You told me that was my job. I prayed and we had three beautiful nights. I’m not sure it’ll work that way every year—it could just be beginner’s luck. But, what’s not beginner’s luck is the work you all did to make the carnival a success.

Blessed by magnificent weather, we enjoyed one of the best carnivals ever. While the money it raised will be superb support to St Boniface, I'm more impressed with the friend-raising that it spawned. Many more people joined in as volunteers. Lycoming students, new parishioners and veterans of the parish had a chance to work side by side. This only makes us better as we stand and pray together. Finally, we need to express our gratitude to the parish activities committee. They organize the smallest details and devoted hours to a successful 3 days. Bravo to all. May God bless your aching backs. Fr. Bill

THANK YOU for making the 2019 carnival a huge success!! We were finally blessed with great weather for all 3 nights! Our Fabulous Chef and kitchen staff prepared over 700 meals during the 3-day event. The dining room staff met that challenge like a well-oiled machine. Everyone was greeted with a smile and enjoyed delectable desserts prepared by our parishioners. Outside the smell of pierogis, hot sausage, and onions filled the air. The food stand crew fought through long lines and tired feet to provide our patrons with full stomachs. Thank you to everyone that filled the open positions to allow the food stand to run smooth...
