Book Lovers, Bargain Hunters, & Book Dealers Wanted Saturday August 1st!

26 Jul

On Saturday, August 1, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Holy Ghost Park, 70 Nells Rock Road, Shelton, a group from our parish will host a “Vintage Book & Tag Sale.” 

If you’re a book lover, you’ll find an excellent and HUGE selection of vintage books—from gardening to WWII heroes. If you’re a Tag Sale aficionado, make this sale your one-stop shop on Saturday. And, enjoy a sweet from our bake goods table while you bargain hunt or browse.

Are you a Book Dealer, or do you have any questions? Send a query through the “Ask Father” section of our website, and he’ll contact event coordinators Audrey, Myra, or Kathy for you.

This sale is only one of the many projects going on at Holy Ghost Church related to our “Ten Talents Challenge.” Here’s the deal: in June our parish gave out $10 to any willing church member who thought he or she could use their God-given talent to increase that sum of money, and to donate the profit to the church.

The challenge was based on the on Gospel story of the “Ten Talents”  (Matt 25:14–30), in which good stewards, by using their strength and ingenuity, increased the golden talent (coin) that their Master had given to them.

What a time our parishioners have had since then, using their creative minds and busy hands to put their $10 to work! Using her crocheting ability, Dorothy’s already sold $90 worth of handmade kitchen hand towels and still is taking orders. Rich is making wood-carved receptacles for funeral memorial cards. Yours truly (Fr. Steven, with wife Deb) sold his secret chili hot dog sauce at the church picnic in July and gleaned $50 profit. Mark and Love Ann are counting the profits from their brick oven pizzas, and Vera was the first to turn in a 1,000% profit from her baked goods!

We’ll be posting all the results of all projects after the deadline for the challenge, August 22nd. Meanwhile, you can help make Audrey, Myra, and Kathy (and all their bakers and helpers) increase their talents by supporting them for the Vintage Sale this Saturday.

Your Pastor, Fr. Steven

P.S. My favorite category of books is military history, and I’d love to chat about yours at the sale! See you there.
