Annual Mission Appeal

    The Missionaries of Our Lady of LaSalette will be in our parish next weekend, July 8/9.  Their Missionaries minister to people of every race, language, culture and way of life – beginning at the La Salette Shrine in France where our Blessed Mother appeared in 1846.  Her final words, “Well, my children, you will make this known to all my people”, echo Jesus’ Gospel mandate.  It is little wonder that the La Salette Congregation has always been mission oriented.  When called upon by the Vatican to preach the Gospel in foreign lands, they eagerly responded.  This spirit brought them to mission in 27 countries, especially among the poor in Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, India, Madagascar, Myanmar and the Philippines.  With your cooperation and support, the Missionaries of La Salette can continue to provide spiritual and financial assistance to these mission countries as they bring God’s reconciling message to the poor. 

RCIA-(Christian Initiation for Adults).

            The Catholic Community of St. Paul Parish wish to extend a special invitation to all who are interested in learning more about the process of becoming a Baptized member of our Church.  If you, or someone you know have been thinking about taking this step toward full Communion, do not hesitate to call the office at 483-8481 and ask to speak to Lorette about this process.  Whether you have already been baptized in another Christian Faith denomination or have never been baptized at all, the road is open to all.  If you are interested in knowing more about this spiritually enriching journey toward Catholicism, we would be happy to meet with you and answer any questions you may have.

A Time for Altar Serving Training
    If you have a son or daughter who has made their 1st Communion and is between the ages of 8 and 12 years old, and has expressed the desire to be an altar server, this is the time to come forward.  We will be trying a new method of training this year.  We are in the process of making a video for them to take home and watch.  This way they can watch the video as often as they need to in order to remember what their responsibilities are.  If your child is interested in this important ministry, please let Lorette know as soon as possible. 
    If your child has not mentioned this desire, perhaps you may want to ask them. 

Christian Formation News

Grades K – 3
    The children entering grades K- 3 this fall will be attending Lectionary Catechesis as they have been in the past. The program runs from mid-September to mid-May.  The last class of the year will be on Sunday, May 14, 2006
 
Grades 4 – 10+
 This year we are initiating a new program for the children in these grade levels.  The classes are held once a month and the program is geared to the entire family. Parents are asked to attend the sessions as there is an adult component to the program. Our first class was Sunday, October 16, 2005 from 11am – 1pm.  The last class of the school year was on May 21, 2006.  This class was held at St. Peter Church at 4:00 PM.  There were a number of church related activities on that day which would make it difficult if not impossible to hold a double program.  We will return to having separate sessions in the fall.   Thank you very much for your understanding.  If you are new to the parish or if you child is just beginning his/her formation, please call the parish office for a registration blank.

    Confirmation students will meet one extra time per month.   All students from both parishes will meet together in Auburn for these meetings.

Question of the Week
13th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Theme:
(Seeking Wholeness)
Reading I:
Wisdom 1: 13-15,(Created in God’s Image)
Reading II:
2 Cor. 8: 7, 9, 13-15 (Supply the Needs of the Poor)
Gospel:
Mark. 5:21-43 (Jairus’ Daughter/The Hemorrhaging Woman)

Question for Adults:
  How can I make the reality of the intimate presence of Christ with me a daily awareness?
    When we receive a sacrament, any one of the seven, we are experiencing, in a spiritual manner, what we see in the concrete.  Therefore, when we receive the host, we are actually being fed and we are literally consuming the Body/ Blood of Christ. 
     Whenever we consume something, our being changes.  We may grow stronger, have more energy, become tired (if we are diabetic and we eat too much sugar).  We can become hyper, sluggish, or even ill.  We are well aware of these reactions and we become more and more alert to what and when we consume certain foods and drinks.
    Receiving the Body and Blood of Christ also has the power to affect us.  Christ becomes part of us in a way that we can be aware. However, like every other experience on our spiritual journey, change will only happen and, we will become aware of the daily presence of Christ if we have Faith.  It also means that we are expected to respond to the presence of the person who wants to share our daily life.  This is the difference between receiving Christ and eating food.  Food will act on its own.  God, on the other hand, will not force us to respond to him.  We have the freedom to ignore him or be conscious of his presence. If we believe, we can become whole gain. What part of us needs healing and wholeness today?
     
Question for Children?    Since Jesus is with me in a special way I the Eucharist, how should I ask him to help me when I receive Holy Communion?  This question is a good opener for a discussion on the topic of sacraments in general.  A Sacrament is an outward sign or( something we can see) which is given to us by Jesus in order to experience grace.  This is another way of saying that we come to experience the Life of Jesus within us each time we receive a sacrament.  Communion is a very intimate sacrament because we consume the host.  This means that Jesus is literally part of our daily experience.   How do we respond to this?
