OUR LADY of CONSOLATION SHRINE,
LABOR DAY is SEPTEMBER 1
As our US Bishops wrote in their document, A Jubilee for Workers: Challenges and Opportunities for the New Millennium: “It is worth remembering on Labor Day… that a person is more valuable for what she or he is then for what they have, for the work they do rather than for what they possess. We must join together… to build a society that respects each person and their work.” The Marriage and Family Life Office encourages you to talk with your children about how work gives witness to our faith, how each of us can make the world a better place by who we are and what we do, and how all that we do can manifest the love of God. Spend some time reflecting on how you bring holiness and wholeness to the work you do.
Lord, let our work be a source of joy to our family and a song of praise to you. Amen.
GRANDPARENTS’ DAY is SEPTEMBER 7
The Marriage and Family Life Office reminds you that
DEACONS ANNUAL CHARITY OPEN…The deacons of the Diocese of Columbus (including our own Roger Minner & Larry Koebel) are organizing their annual golf outing. This year’s proceeds will go to support Divine Mercy Ministry, a prison re-entry ministry for women. The event is September 15th at Clover Valley Golf Club. They are still in need of sponsorships and golfers. A $2,500 sponsor for greens-fees and a $1,500 sponsor for the luncheon are their major needs, but a donation of any size is welcome. Please contact Roger Minner at 614 296-0877 to help or for details.
THANK YOU – MISSION SUPPORT
Thank you for your gift in the amount of $2,939.98 on behalf of the Diocese of San Carlos, Philippines. You have our sincerest gratitude for your participation in the 2008 Missionary Cooperation Plan by way of your hospitality, prayers and generous financial support.
With your gifts, the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ may be spread wherever it has not yet taken root. We are deeply grateful for the generosity of St. Mary Parish to help promote the missionary work of the Church. Through your missionary spirit, we are joyfully reminded that the Propagation of the Faith is all of us committed to the worldwide mission of Jesus. This message of thanks was sent to us from Leandro M. Tapay, Mission Director.
