In response to the devasting acts of violence we have all witnessed in Orlando, St. Paul, Baton Rouge, Dallas and in our own communities, Bishop cunningham celebrated a special Mass on July 13th for members of the community to promote harmony. 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.
PLEASE BE SURE TO MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
On Thursday, August 4th, St. Mary's of the Lake added a morning Mass (each Thursday at 8:15 am) to our Morning Mass Schedule. We hope that you will be able to join us.
Just a Note About Summer
Although we hope for a warm and dry summer, please be aware that we come to Church to honor God. Please make sure that your mode of dress reflects that we are gathering for prayer and not for a day at the beach.
PRAYER CHAIN - To email requests: email@example.com
The next time we gather together immediately after the morning Mass for FIRST MONDAY COFFEE AND CONVERSATIONS will be on October 3rd.
