RCIA UPDATE

Are you interested in learning about the Catholic faith? Are you looking into joining the Church?  Are you a Catholic who has been away for a while?  Did you miss Confirmation? Then the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for you.  It begins with a cook-out on August 19th, at 6:30 p.m. on the back patio of Father’s house (to the right of the Church when facing it from 3rd street).  Bring friends if you wish. RCIA sessions will be held each Wednesday starting at 7:00 p.m.  Attending the classes does not obligate you to entering the Church at Easter. 

We look forward to seeing you in August.

 

BINGO VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Every Sunday dedicated volunteers work Bingo.  The monies raised from bingo help support our school and parish.  This past year, Bingo made $76,759.85.  This is a 75% increase from the year before!  This is by far our largest fundraiser of the year.  However, we are in need of more dedicated volunteers to keep bingo running.  The crowds are growing, but our volunteers are not.  We are in need of people to volunteer once a month on a regular basis.  There is no smoking in the gymnasium.  Come and get involved, meet new people, and help support your parish through your gift of time.  To get involved please call the parish office at 445-9668.

AN INVITATION FROM ST. JOSEPH CATHEDRAL

In commemoration of The Year of the Priest, as has been proclaimed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI,  Saint John Vianney, Universal Patron of Priests, will be honored Saturday, August 1st, through his feast day, Tuesday, August 4th, at St. Joseph Cathedral. All members of our Diocese are welcome to join us in this beautiful celebration after every mass when the Holy Relic of the beloved Saint will be exposed on the altar of the Terce Chapel for veneration and private prayer.

Dear Lord, we pray that the Blessed Mother wrap her mantle around her priests and through her intercession strengthen them for their ministry. We pray that Mary will guide your priests to follow her own words, “Do whatever he tells you” (John 2:5). May your priests have the heart of St. Joseph, Mary’s most chaste spouse. May the Blessed Mother’s own pierced heart inspire them to embrace all who suffer at the foot of the cross. May your priests be holy, filled with the fire of your love seeking nothing but your greater glory and the salvation of souls. Amen.
