Sacrament of Confirmation for Adults… if there are any adults in our parish who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Spring, please contact Fr. Joe as soon as possible at 875-8102.
.”Jesus speaks God’s Word to us, Jesus is God’s Word to us.” It is not always easy to listenso many things distract us, and often we are used to doing the talking. How about our listening qualities? Are we good listeners? What or who do we listen to the most? What have you heard God/Jesus say to you recently? Or are we too busy listening to other voices? Our Religious Education students have begun this year trying to learn how to listen more closely to God who speaks to us through His Word proclaimed, through His creation, and through others who love us. This is the month of the Rosary, and the month of the “missions.” Can each of us, or can each of our families, pray the rosary, or part of the rosary, for the many people in missionary regions and those who serve them? Surely Mary will go to her Son with our prayers.
There are no classes next week, Sunday, October 13, due to the Columbus holiday.
Our RCIA process will begin again Sunday, September 17th.
If you - or someone you know - is seeking to become a member of
our Church please contact Fr. Joe at 875-8102
This process is designed to WELCOME adults who are :
1) interested in becoming a Catholic; or
2) are Baptized Catholics wishing to complete their initiation process by receiving the sacraments of Confirmation and/or Eucharist.
Classes are held on Sunday in the Parish Hall and led by volunteers who are eager and very willing to guide those wishing to receive their unfinished Sacraments or who want to join the Catholic Faith.
All are Welcome.
We have today another quote from Pope Francis for
the Year of Mercy:
“However dark things are, goodness always re-emerges and spreads.
Each day in our world beauty is born anew; it rises
transformed through the storms of history.
Values always tend to reappear under new guises and human beings
have arisen time after time from situations that seemed doomed.
Such is the power of the Resurrection, and all who evangelize
are instruments of that power.”
