Welcome back to all of our Parish School of Religion faculty and students! Class lists are posted in the school lobby. If you did not yet register for this year’s program, there will be a registration desk in the lobby with staff members to help you. Please be patient with our many volunteers who work so hard to make this program such a blessing to our community. Parishioners are asked to be aware of children in the parking lot before and after mass. Thanks for your consideration!
On Saturday, October 4th, parishioner Lynn Underwood and I will lead a special day of reflection entitled “CELEBRATING ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI: Flourishing in the Midst of Life’s Challenges.” Beginning at 10am and concluding at 4:30pm, the day will focus on creating a space for you to be more open to how limitations and hard times can actually enable you to live more fully. There is no cost for the day, yet reservations are necessary as lunch will be provided. Give yourself a gift and take some time to find more peace in your life on this feast of St. Francis of Assisi. You are especially encouraged to invite a friend to join you! Reservations can be made by calling or emailing the parish office (firstname.lastname@example.org). I hope you will consider joining us for this special day!
On Tuesday of this week, the children and faculty of St. Dominic School will join the parish staff on a day of retreat as we reflect on our theme for this school year: “Caring for God’s Creation.” The retreat day will begin with mass at 8:30am, followed by various presentations by staff members on our care of all of God’s creation. Please pray for all of us as we begin our school year with this special day of growing together in faith!
Like many of you, we are still cleaning out basements after the various rainstorms this summer. I would like to thank parishioner Patty Clair who has given countless hours of her time to help us clean and organize all of our storage areas in the church basement and sacristies. She has been a real blessing, and her service is greatly appreciated! Special thanks also to Ed and Marilyn Zahurak who have completed refurbishing all of the church doors as well as the rectory front door. Their hard work has saved the parish literally thousands of dollars and has been a true labor of love. We are so blessed!
