Returning guests who bring their Red Hot Rewards Club card will get credits and points added to their existing card. Guests need to bring a valid ID to receive the group package. Those without Red Hot Rewards Cards will be issued them prior to entering casino.
The Dean Trailways chartered bus will leave the St. Agnes Church parking lot at 9:30 AM sharp. You'll have 4 hours at the casino to win it BIG. Anticipated arrival time back in Fowlerville is 4:15 PM. Please call the office at 223-8684 to pre-register. We need to fill the bus up in order to make it financially viable to go – so please help me get the word out!

Consider Scrip Cards for Anytime Gift Giving!
Whenever you consider gift card giving, please consider purchasing your gift cards from our parish through our Scrip fundraising program. Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money,” in other words; scrip is gift cards from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift cards that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Meijer, Wal-Mart, VG’s, Tanger Outlet Mall, gasoline, Subway and many others.
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. You buy the gift cards for full face value through the parish, redeem them for full face value, and our church keeps the difference as revenue. The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our parish without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
We keep a selection of the most popular gift cards on hand for people to purchase. However, many other gift cards are available to order. Please consider getting your gift cards through the Scrip program!
Prayer for the Return of Non-practicing Catholics
O Good Shepherd, you never cease to seek out the lost, to call home the stray, to comfort the frightened, and to bind up the wounded.
I ask you to bring (names) back to the practice of the Faith, and to remove all obstacles that prevent them from receiving your abundant mercy, which flows sacramentally through the heart of your holy Church.
Through the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God, their Guardian Angels, their Patron Saints and the ever-prayerful St. Monica, may you pardon their sins and unshackle them from whatever hinders their freedom to come Home.
For you, O Good Shepherd, have loved us to the end and offered yourself to the Father for the salvation of all.
