Snip Clip And Pray Sundays – Sunday 10/10/21 and Sunday 10/17/21

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

What better way to pray than to have your hair cut, dried, and styled before or after Sunday Divine Liturgy. Charbel Chedid has offered his talents by offering haircuts to the ladies of Our Lady of Purgatory Church on Sunday, October 10th and October 17th. All proceeds will be donated to OLOP for his services. A donation box will be set to the side for your donation to the Church while you enjoy a cut, dry and style.

Charbel asks that you wash your hair the day of your appointment. This will be done in the rectory before Liturgy or during coffee hour.

I would like to thank Charbel for sharing his talents with the Church and for donating the proceeds to the Church. The times of appointments will be 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM and 12:00 Noon to 3:00 PM. For these two Sundays, cuts will be available to the women of the parish and when we schedule the next two sessions, we will also include men who would like to have their hair cut. Please include 2 time preferences in case your first choice has been scheduled. A schedule has been attached to this web post (Schedule for Haircuts) for October 10th and October 17.

In Christ,
Fr. Vincent
