This past Sunday was our parish feast day! In the spirit of being the Body of Christ in the world, over 50 people gathered for our Taste of Summer event! We celebrated together with a bike ride, some ice cream, and supporting our local food pantry. Thank you to everyone who participated and a special thank you to The Cottage Creamery and the Keplers for your hospitality! To view the full photo album, click here.
Please stop by the Parish Center or in the entrances of church to pick up a copy.
In order to replace or supplement what parish/school locations have been able to do in Safe Environment training, Bishop Gruss has authorized the Knights of Columbus Protecting Our Children Guide for Families to be made available to all Catholic households with youth (not solely families enrolled in Catholic schools or Faith Formation programs). The guides are available at the Front Desk in the Parish Center and in the entrances of the church.
The icy sidewalks are gone, spring is here, and Jesus Christ is risen! ALLELULIA!! Sounds like the perfect time to dust off your rosary ring and take up the ROSARY ON THE GO again! If you enjoy walking or jogging by yourself or with others why not turn it into a time of prayer so that you can exercise your body and your soul at the same time?! If you are new to the Rosary on the Go, Blessed Sacrament will provide rosary rings for each participant and beginning May 2, a weekly prayer intention based on Pope Francis’s monthly prayer intention. Please contact Lyn at email@example.com to request your rosary ring(s) and list of weekly intentions. In Mark 16:15 Jesus said, “GO into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature…” On your mark, get set, GO!!!!
Pope Francis’s Prayer Intention for May: The World of Finance
May 2: “That those in charge of finance will work with governments to regulate the financial sphere and protect citizens from its dangers.”
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.
