Weekly Update June 20th, 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):

Prayer for Vocations

Both Bishop Bob and Deacon Don celebrated anniversaries of their ordination in the month of May. In July we will welcome both a missionary priest and a seminarian to share with us about their vocations. It is important for us to remember the important role our priests and religious have in our lives and to continue our prayers for new vocations. Consider spending a week praying for vocations in our families and community with one of the prayers available here.
