If you enjoyed the Bob Goff, LOVE DOES, book/video small group study this fall or if you find that you are looking for a short, but meaningful study for Lent, then you aren’t going to want to miss out on EVERYBODY, ALWAYS beginning on February 16.
“In this five-session video Bible study, bestselling author Bob Goff shares some of the stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to love everybody the way Jesus loved them–without fear, insecurity, or restriction. Following Christ means more than just putting a toe in the water when it comes to loving others. It means grabbing your knees and doing a cannonball! And, as Jesus revealed, it means loving the difficult ones. Everybody, Always will provide practical steps to help you take that journey.”
Contact Lyn Pajk for more information. Please note, that we won’t make a decision on format until a later date based on state regulations.

On October 31 after 4:00 Mass, approximately 125 costumed kiddos and their parents joined in our SPOOKTCULAR Trunk or Treat event! Everyone got into the Halloween fun including the 24 volunteers who hosted trunks and handed out treats. Over 165 people took the opportunity to vote for the BEST DRESSED TRUNK and our top three displays were:
3rd Place: The Camacho Celis Family with a wonderful Day of the Dead display
2nd Place: Megan Mallory and her amazing Cookie Monster
1st Place: Dillon and Kristen John who dressed as lumberjacks, had a candy chute to deliver treats to the kids, and a lumberjack cutout for a photo op!!!
Thank you to everyone for their creativity and generous spirits!! Whether you donated candy, hosted a trunk, or came for the treats, you made this first Trunk or Treat a fabulous success!
At Mass on the weekend of October 3/4, Fr. Rob challenged us to read the second reading in the morning and at night for one week. He then asked those who accepted this challenge to let us know how it made their day/week better, or if it changed their outlook at all.
Brothers and sisters: Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you.
If you would like to participate, please tell us your experience below.
After Mass, we will be walking around the Swede/Sugnet/Kentwood/Ashman big block. Socially distanced and with masks.
Register to walk or feel free to donate. In addition to doing our part to stop hunger, we are collecting socks that will be distributed to local agencies fighting homelessness in our community. Our Corporal Work of Mercy for the month of October is Clothe the Naked. We will collect these at Masses on October 3 or 4, or you can drop them off to the parish center the week of September 27th.
