DECEMBER 2023 CASH CALENDAR
Our December Cash Calendar Sweepstakes is an important fundraiser for Saint Kateri's Shrine. Every day in December, we will hold a drawing for cash prizes ranging from $50 to $500. Cash prizes total $3,000! Winning tickets will be re-entered for all remaining drawings. Call 518-853-3646 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets. Suggested donations are $5 for each ticket or $25 for six. No donation is necessary to win.
MASS OF REMEMBRANCE
November is the month during which we remember the departed faithful. Join us on Saturday, November 18, for a Mass of Remembrance in Grassmann Hall.
2023 ONLINE FUNDRAISER AUCTION
Here’s your chance to support the Saint Kateri Shrine while doing some holiday shopping! We'll be holding our third online fundraiser auction Monday, November 27, through Monday, December 4.
Items have been donated from members of our community, and all proceeds will cover the Shrine’s operational costs through the winter.
Once the auction goes live, you will need to register on the auction website with your name, phone number, and e-mail address. Your credit card information will only be required if you have a winning bid. Shipping is FREE, but items can be shipped to U.S. addresses only. Items can also be picked up on site either Monday through Friday from 8 to 4 or during our gift shop’s Christmas shopping hours: December 9 and 10 from 12 to 4.
Please also share this with family and friends and on your social media (if you are into that). The more people who visit the site and bid, the more successful our fundraiser will be!
Here’s to a peaceful and joyous holiday season ahead. Thank you for your support!
