CCW&M Meetings

If you haven't signed up and paid the $10 in dues to be a member of CCWM for this year, we really encourage you to do so! The CCWM activities are dependent on the generosity of dues and donations. Thank you to all who have signed up, the CCWM could not function without your generosity of time, talent, and treasure!


There will be a Rectory Cleaning and Fixing Day WEDNESDAY AUGUST 10th starting at 8:30AM in the Rectory at Saint Pius in Solon Springs. PLEASE JOIN US as many hands make light work. We would love to make the rectory like new before Father Bala comes in September.


Reminder: there will be NO DAILY MASS in August
