DC 'Hood @ Verizon Center!!

Eucharistic Adoration, tonight, 7-8 pm, SAA Church. All who wish to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament are invited!
In five weeks, “DC ‘Hood” will be playing its second annual basketball game at Verizon Center. This year we are taking on “Men in Black”, a team of priests and seminarians from the Archdiocese of Baltimore. The game is scheduled for Sunday, March 2 @ 1:30 p.m. Those who attend our game have to purchase a ticket to the Wizards game (6:00 p.m.), but don’t need to stay around for the Wizards game. At the halftime of our game, we will show a powerful and inspiring video on the priesthood, “Fishers of Men”.

This event is intended to promote vocations and raise funds for CYO/OYM. We are helping CYO to sell tickets to the Wizards game; they receive a generous portion of the proceeds. Last year, many people very generously contributed to our effort which resulted in about 600 sold tickets which was one of the largest group sales the Wizards have ever made. I am hoping that we can sell even more tickets this year!

Tickets are $25 (Upper Level B), $30 (Upper Level A, and $80 (Lower Level). Buying two $25 tickets, for example, would help greatly!! Even if you’re not able or interested in going, can you make a donation to our cause? The more tickets we sell; the more we promote the priesthood and raise funds for our youth.

You can order tickets online by clicking on the title of this post, or for donations only, mail a check to me directly at: Fr. Greg Shaffer, St. Andrew Apostle parish, 11600 Kemp Mill Rd., Silver Spring, MD 20902. (I will give your tickets to kids in the school or parish.)

If you are able to send a donation, please include your prayer intentions so that I can take them to our Lord when I offer Mass or make a Holy Hour in His Presence. Thank you very much and may God continue to bless you abundantly.

I usually go to the Baltimore MIB games, when they play near me. I couldn't make the game today, as I don't know the DC area.
