Rosarian's 'sweet' Valentine bake sale draws on a common Biblical theme

Did you know that some form of the word 'sweet' is used in the Bible 118 times? Here's an example from Proverbs 24:13: "Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste."

On February 14-15th, St. Catherine's parishioners were certainly loyal to the word as they purchased and consumed approximately 140 sweet desserts from the Rosary Society Bake Sale. The Rosarians pass along their gratitude to members who baked and helped sell, and to parishioners who stayed after Masses to support the works of this vital group of women in our parish.

The Rosarians expressed special thanks to parish youth whose heart-shaped cookies and delicious cupcakes were an essential part of the $1,041.50 that was raised to help the Rosarians charitable efforts for the parish: "Thank you, parents for the ingredients and transportation. Though the roads were sometimes treacherous, the sweet smells that greeted Mass-goers had families arriving with happy smiles. Thanks to these benefactors, for the first time in Rosarian bake sale history, every single cake, cookie, and delectable dessert was sold! What a fabulous sale it was! We plan to present Father Chester with a check in a few months."

The Rosarians also reminded parishioners to call or write to request the Traveling Mary Statue: "Wouldn't it be extra special to have our Blessed Mother in your home when you celebrate your child's First Eucharist in May and Confirmation in June?"

"Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh... and of sweet cinnamon... and of sweet calamus..." Exodus 30:23"
