COTTONWOOD -- Hey! Guess what? There is some ground beneath all that snow! We are starting to see big patches of green or black between all that white snow. Actually, it melted quite a bit last week. The animals seem to be happier, too.

Be on your guard next Monday for April Fool’s Day. Just be suspicious of anyone who tries to tell you something that doesn’t sound right. Don’t let them make a fool out of you!

There will be a Bunko party next Saturday, March 30, in Assumption Parish Hall at 6 p.m., following evening Mass. Bunko is a dice game, very easy to learn and a lot of fun. All adults are invited. Cost is $5 so we can split the pot at the end. If possible, bring finger food to share. Come and plan to have a good time.

Richard Lane, a well-known Catholic evangelist, will be coming to St. Mary’s Parish in Cottonwood for a Lenten Mission on April 4-5, Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m. Mass will be at 6:30 p.m. What are you asking the Holy Spirit in your life? Do you understand the Power you have in the Holy Spirit? Do you know God’s purpose for you and your life? Two nights of powerful preaching and teaching. All are welcome!
