Weekly Update June 15th, 2017

Weekly Update Emblem.jpg

Welcome to a new feature of our website! Unlike the parish bulletin which is chock-full of great events and information, this will be a place for resources, prayers, and reminders for the week. Content (news, events, prayers, reflections, links, etc.) will vary from week to week so we encourage you to visit often.

News

Blue St. Vincent de Paul Box

Due to overflow, damage, theft and unsightly mess St. Vincent de Paul no longer has the manpower to manage the extreme amount of donations that are dropped off at the blue box sites and has decided to move the box from our location. Keeping the boxes in the community has both safety and financial costs at this point that have led to this important decision in stewardship. Donations can still be dropped off at (Hours are M-F 9a-7p and Saturday 9a-3p):

St Vincent de Paul Donation Center

1529 Leo Frigo Way

Parish Prayer Bulletin

Many of you already take advantage of our parish prayer chain, but for those of you who spend more time online, we are launching a regular Facebook prayer bulletin (a new post will be available every Thursday) and a place on our website for you to submit prayer requests. We are a communion of saints and we are called to pray for and with one another. Our staff will be praying over your intentions and invite you to do the same.

Parish Picture Directory

Can you believe it has already been 5 years since our last pictorial directory?? This year is a wonderful year to participate because this will be Bishop Bob’s final pictorial directory and Fr. Tim’s very first parish directory. Let’s send Bishop off with as many of our smiling faces as we can and welcome Fr. Tim with the same.

As a bonus, when you have your photo taken you receive the following benefits:

  • FREE photo session with several backgrounds and poses

  • 1 FREE 8x10 photo of your directory pose

  • 1 FREE parish picture directory

  • $10 off any additional photo purchases

  • An additional $5 off any additional photo purchases if you bring a non-perishable food item

PLUS: The parish receives an additional $5 per family that is photographed to donate to the cause of Bishop’s choosing. This is NOT to be missed!

Why go to the mall for your family pictures this year when you could come over to the parish, have your family included in our farewell/welcome directory, AND benefit a good cause instead!  Sign up online at www.gbres.org under the "Resources" tab or call the parish office. Watch the bulletin for session recommendations!
