NEW BOOK ARRIVES
I’m pleased to announce that my latest book,“ Verboort: A Priest and His People,” finally arrived just prior to Christmas. Please note that this book, and others, will be on sale at the convent/ school office. Sister Clare will be happy to sell you a book at anytime (exception of during Mass time). Please call her prior to coming at 503-357-4190. The cost of the books will be $55.00. Please make all checks payable to “Visitation School Tuition Fund”.
I will have two copies of each book on display in the vestibule of the church this weekend for you to peruse.
A book signing will be held in the Parish Center on Sunday, January 9, 2011. I will autograph books that day after the morning Masses in the Parish Center which will coincide with the Parish Breakfast for our 8th Grade Retreat. I will sign books until 3 pm for out of town guests. I would like to thank the school parents for hosting this signing.
I’ve had a thousand books printed this time around, and if all are sold we should have over $50,000 raised for tuition assistance for families enrolled here at Visitation School. To help build this fund, we will accept whatever donations you may give for such a worthy cause.
God bless all our loved ones who have gone before us in faith, and God continue to bless all of us who strive to follow their lead.
