I hope you had a great weekend. Here is some news around the parish today:
- A replica of the image of the Holy Family that will be used at the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia in a few weeks is now on display in the sanctuary. Make sure to check it out this weekend or whenever you have a moment. It was blessed at Mass this morning.
- The Core Team for the youth group had a meeting last night. The Core Team are the youth leaders who commit to prayer, retreats, service, small groups, and other acts of leadership and faith.
- There will be an in-service for faith formation teachers this evening in the church basement.
- We are still awaiting word from the state on the approval for the plans to add the classrooms to the school.
- We have received a variety of bids on the church roof and are in the process of reviewing them now in the days and weeks ahead.
- The school open house is tomorrow evening from 5:00-7:00 P.M. Please stop by. There will be a sloppy jo dinner provided. There are lots of great things happening at the school. You will hear more about those in the days and weeks ahead.
- The Holy Father has written a letter about the upcoming year of Mercy. It will be a great year to reflect upon God’s unconditional and infinite love and mercy. Once we experience God’s love, our lives are never the same. Read the full letter here.
- Get an early start on preparation for this Sunday’s readings. Pray with them here:
- Today is the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. Let’s join the Holy Father and pray for God’s creation in a special way today.
I hope all is well.
