A Message From Fr. Mark – New Pastoral Council Members

Mark O'Hern

Six candidates for the pastoral council were nominated back when we asked for the submission of names of people whom we thought would bring positive input and direction to the future of our parish. At the 10 AM Mass on May 10th four names were drawn by chance (Holy Spirit).  We wish to welcome Barb Bauda, Damon Finazzo, Theresa Imler and Marilyn Sharp to the pastoral council. Leaving the council are Rose Colonna, Tom Hudson, Jack Hewitt and Jeff Rossi, and we thank them for their service to the parish on the council and their ongoing work in different ministries. Pastoral council meets on the 1st Wednesday of every other month from Sept thru May.Additionally there are 3 subcommittees with focuses on Youth, Faith & Family, and Outreach which are working throughout the year and are open to anyone who has an interest in these respective areas.
Prayer Shawl Ministry

Our ministry would like your help: if you know of someone who is ill, having surgery, in a nursing home, having a baby, or any other special occasion, please let us know. We would be happy to present them with a prayer shawl. More information: call Sr. Ricarda or Mary Ann at 456-6256 or rvincent@velocity.net.

On Pentecost, we remember Christ has given us the Holy Spirit to assist us in raising our family and he expects us to use this personal gift. Let’s set aside the distractions in our lives and let the Holy Spirit “guide us to the truth.”Help Needed.
Cleaning Teams

Several of our parish Cleaning Teams need new members. Each team consists of women, men and children who clean once every 9 weeks – a total of about 5-6 times a year. Teams usually clean either on Friday mornings or evenings, or on Saturday mornings. Presently we are in need especially for help on a Friday morning team. Would you or your family be willing to help us keep our Church clean? This is a great opportunity for anyone who is in need of service hours. Call Rebecca Flynn at the rectory, 456-6256 for more information.
Vocation Cross Program

pray-for-vocationsOur parish continues the “Vocation Cross” program. This is an opportunity for families to pray daily for vocations to the religious life and priesthood in their homes. Is your family interested in participating? If so, please call Rebecca Flynn at the rectory, 456-6256. The Vocation Cross will be presented at the end of Mass. Along with the cross, suggested prayers will be given. After two weeks, the family who takes the cross home returns the cross to the Church and another family will have the opportunity to take the cross home. This program will be on-going.
