Things to think about for the fall…

  1. First Fridays—Eucharistic Adoration runs from October-June. It requires only two people per hour starting after the 9:00AM Mass until 12:30PM following with the benediction. Each month we would need six people in order to continue this ministry.
  2. Coffee & Donuts— This program operates in Oct., Nov., Feb., April, May & June on the first Sunday of the month in the school hall after the 9:30AM Mass until 11:00AM. There are more parish events occurring during the other months. It’s a great way to strengthen the parish community and we would like to keep that going! To do that we need more volunteers to help run this wonderful program!
  3. R.C.I.A—Our Parish RCIA Program starts up in September. It meets every Thursday evening from 7PM-8PM in the Parish Renewal Center. This program is for those who would like to explore the teachings of the Catholic Church with the intention of being baptized or officially received into the Church.

 

A True Act of Christian Kindness Needed !

The school is accepting a new family, for the 2015-16 academic year, with a very unique and confidential situation. The children NEED to be in our caring, safe, nurturing, loving, comforting, Christian environment, and I am asking for your help. To quote the school’s Mission Statement:

“Saint Bridget School partners with families and our church to develop the whole person within a community of faith.”

If you are able to help in any way, please send your tax-deductible donation for the family via the       St. Bridget Help-A-Student Fund to the attention of Mrs. Sebastian in the tuition office at the rectory. Tuition is approximately $5,000.00 per student and they have more than one child.

With God’s Choicest Blessings for this family,

Msgr. Strahan
