The weekend of August 12th and 13th we welcome Bishop Herbert A. Bevard, Bishop of Saint Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands to join us and share his mission with all of us. Thank you in advance for your anticipated generosity.
On Tuesday, August 15th, at 7:00am and 7:00pm our Church celebrates a Holy Day of Obligation, The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
In the words of Pope Francis: "May the God of peace arouse in all an authentic desire for dialogue and reconciliation. Violence cannot be overcome with violence. Violence is overcome with peace." Please take a moment to pray and ponder this prayer from the Saint Mary's Press Catholic Youth Prayer Book titled: "There Is So Much": To Jesus, who calmed the stormy sea: There is so much pressure, there is so much hurt, there is so much Confusion, there is so much noise. Jesus, please calm this storm, so that I may sit peacefully in His boat with You. Amen.
Our next Coffee and Conversation will be held on Monday, October 2nd, immediately following morning Mass. It promises to be a time when we are all preparing for cooler weather. We will be raking leaves and placing our finest Mum Plants and Pumpkins in and around our homes. So plan on joining us for some good old fashioned coffee and sweets...and maybe some of that apple cider too! It goes without saying that we'll have great conversation! All are welcome!
