CFM Announcements May 2020

We hope everyone is doing well! Just a quick email to help keep us all connected.

We are:
-announcing an OLW Cookbook to raise funds for the parish and to help keep us connected (recipes by May 10, pre-order Now!); and
-having our last CFM Meeting on May 8.

OLW Cookbook: Its been ~20 years since the last OLW Cookbook. I’m not sure about you, but we seem to be cooking at home a lot more lately. We’re looking to collect recipes that you have been using during this time of isolation to share with each other to help stay connected. You can also include other notes, pictures of the recipes, family prayers, and the like. How to help? Its as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Contribute. Looking for recipes, photos, stories about meals you’ve made, family meal prayers, and the like. This can be done via the cookbook link, or by emailing Looking for all recipes to be in by May 10.
2. Pre-Order. Please pre-order via the link. We need a minimum of 100 books to launch this. Once we get final page count we can get a final cost, but looking to sell for ~$30, with proceeds going to the Parish.
3. Share. Let everyone know we’re looking for contributions and pre-orders. There’s a face-book ‘share’ button at the link, the Wayside Wednesday’s include the link, and look for the parish and school’s facebook posts to forward on. This is an OLW-wide event, just coordinated through CFM.

We’re using the Create My Cookbook website ( to gather recipes and collect pre-orders. Also, email works as well. Let me know if you have any questions.
