February 2010

Letter from President:

Dear MOMS,
Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. As we celebrate this holiday it is a perfect time to reflect on happiness that God brings into our lives everyday. The simplest ways to show love... a kiss, smile, hug, pat on the back, high five and kind words... are the things in life that count the most. Enjoy this Valentine's day with your families and make every moment together count!

We have the pleasure of hearing Jenny Gomez, a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, speak to our group this month. She will help us with our parenting struggles and give us tips for success.

Our annual bake sale is upon us! This is a huge fundraiser for our group and an easy way to earn funds for Outreach. An exciting addition to our sale is the MOMS 2009-2010 Cookbooks! Items can be dropped off in the volunteer room starting Friday, February 5th.

Thanks to Cindy Kayanan for bringing our 1st MOMS Living Rosary to POP. This special event will be held on Tuesday, February 16th. This is open to our parish so spread the word!

I hope all of you are continuing to look for ways to serve our community. The MOMS Board Nominations will begin this Spring and need YOU to consider a position!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Many Blessings,
Megan Thornton

Hello MOMS,
Adonia and I are so excited to let you know that the cookbooks arrived Monday and look fabulous. They are ready to be sold as of NOW!

"Faith, Food and Fellowship" is our MOMS cookbook comprised of 200+ recipes from our MOMS group at POP. I am so proud of this fundraising accomplishment that we all did together! We only have 220 copies, so reserve yours TODAY! We will be selling the cookbooks to our parish at our Bake Sale on February 7th, however we are taking orders for MOMS now so you can reserve your copy or copies! The cookbooks are $12 for 1 copy or$20 for 2 copies. Think about what a great gift this could be for your mom or mother in law for Mother's Day or a special treat for someone on Valentines Day. Please contact Maureen about how many books you would like. Then, bring a check made out to POP MOMS to this month's meeting!
