Thanks to everyone who helped make the 2014 Habitat Summer Project such a success: those who worked on site; those who prepared and served food; those who donated or raised money; and those who supported us in prayer. As always, this was truly a community effort!
From: Thursday, August 21 through Labor Day-Monday, September 1
All proceeds will go to Habitat and Matthew 25 Funds at Cabrini!
Tickets are $10 a person (discounted from $18) when you bring a Cabrini bulletin with you for identification. The ticket buys you all-day tubing on the Apple River, a tube, a free small DQ cone, and an in-ground swimming pool (with a large slide available on weekends)!! For driving directions and general information check their website: www.appleriver.com. For questions or for large group reservations call Pat Raleigh directly at 651-246-4703. The resort staff will mark on the Cabrini bulletin how many in your group/family went tubing and then make a donation back to St. Frances Cabrini Church accordingly. Snack bar is available at the resort. What a deal and generous offer! Entire ticket proceeds will be donated to Cabrini. Pick any day from August 21 through September 1 that you would like to go.
For deposit bring a driver’s license for every 4 tubes rented. Wear a pair of old shoes in water as river bottom is rocky. Invite your family and friends to come have a great time!

Sr. Camille D’Arienzo recently interviewed Cabrini Peace Advocate Mary Eoloff for NCR’s blog. When asked what makes her happy, Mary replied, “I know that I am loved by the Spirit with every breath I take. That gives me energy… I know that I am breathing in God and breathing out God. What greater consolation could one have?” To read the full interview go to http://ncronline.org/blogs/conversations-sr-camille/advocate-peace-feels-spirit-every-breath
Marge Schnell has been on dialysis for two years and is ready for a kidney transplant. Is there anyone who would consider donating a kidney? HERE’S THE WAY IT WORKS: You register to donate a kidney to the University of Minnesota Kidney Organ Transplant in Marge’s name. Her name goes to the top of the list for a kidney compatible for her. If interested, you can call Marilyn Leister, Marge Schnell or the Cabrini office.
