Reservations are due Monday, September 29th, for our fall retreat, “Celebrating the Spirit of St. Francis of Assisi” on Saturday, October 4th, lead by parishioner Lynn Underwood. The day will begin at 10am and conclude at 4:30pm. There is no cost, but please call the rectory to reserve your seat.
Pet lovers in the parish are invited to a special “Blessing of the Pets” on the west patio of the church on Saturday, October 4th (the Feast of St. Francis), beginning at 4pm. All of God’s creatures are welcome to bring their owners and join us for this annual tradition.
As we prepare to begin our parish RCIA process, please consider those in your life who are not Catholic yet are part of your life and faith. They might be co-workers, neighbors, family members or even your spouse, and the invitation to explore the Catholic faith will make the most sense coming from you! Traditionally, people do not come into the Church because of doctrines or dogmas, but rather because of the love and example of people whom they admire. Think about someone you know who might be ready to begin this exploration of our Catholic tradition and invite them to come to RCIA. You are encouraged to join them for this inquiry, and you will probably learn a lot of things about your Church that you did not know! f you have any questions or need more information, contact Russ Petrus or me at the rectory.
More than ten years ago we installed beautiful new carpeting in the sanctuary. At that time, an older parishioner remarked, “Not the best color for a sanctuary rug….it will show all the dirt. Men never think of that!” I was a little surprised, yet confident that we could keep it clean! Last week, a group of parishioners led by Elsie Lim, Betty Cross, Linda Jordan, and Joann Throndson spent hours removing candle wax, spot cleaning, and then shampooing the entire sanctuary! They made it look new again, and I am humbled by their quiet service to the parish. These holy women are truly a gift to our community, and like so many others, make it a pleasure to be a part of this parish. Thanks to these special women!
