The Year of the Priesthood   
  was inaugurated on the feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 19, 2009. Our Diocese, along with all dioceses of the country, inaugurated the year of the Priesthood.  As the year begins, please keep the priests of our parish, our diocese and of our nation in your prayers.  Beginning this week we will have a special prayer for priests in the box below.  This will replace the prayer to St. Paul since the year of St. Paul will end next week on the feast of St. Peter and Paul.

   Prayer for Priests
Most gracious and loving Father,
     We thank you for our faithful priests whose spiritual fatherhood and example of fidelity, self-sacrifice, and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people.  May they be guided by the examples of Saints Peter and Paul and all the apostles.  Give them valiant faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you, for their families, and for all your people throughout the world.  May the light of your Truth shine through their lives and their good works.  Assist all priests, that that through your Grace they may steadily grow in holiness and in knowledge and understanding of your Truth.  May they generously share their knowledge with those who rely on them.  We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen

Christian Formation News

      All children from k – 10 must register for Religious Education each year.  The registration does not roll over from one year to the next.  We will be mailing a registration form through e-mail in the near future.  If you have not received a form by mid-August it is because we do not have your e-mail address or perhaps you are not yet registered in the parish so we do not have any pertinent information related to you family.  You can call the office between Monday –Thursday at 483-8481 to update your e-mail info or you can pick up a registration in the entrance of the church.

Grades K- 3  The children in grades K – 3 attend classes during the weekend liturgies.  We use a Lectionary Catechesis which is based on the Gospel of the week.  Kindergarten students are not obliged to attend regularly. However beginning with grade 1, students must attend classes on a weekly basis during the Mass, as the program for 1st Communion is a two year program.  The program for the school year 2009-2010 will begin on the weekend of September 19th and 20th.  Classes are held during both weekend Masses. We would need some volunteers to help out as monitors during the classes.  Please contact the office if you can do this.

Grades 4 – 10 +, Generation of Faith     This program is designed for both parents and children.  Parents who have children in grades  4 - 10 are asked to attend these monthly sessions. The adult session gives them an opportunity to refresh their memory on important matters of the faith as well as giving them the chance to share with other adults on pertinent issues of faith.  All GoF classes are held on Sundays from 4 – 6 pm.  See you all next fall.

Confirmation Program: 
    The Confirmation students will begin their two year program on Sunday, October 5, 2008.  Classes are held from 11:00 am to 12 noon. Students must be registered in the program and must be registered members of the parish.  If you have not yet registered your child for classes please call the office to speak to Lorette.

                     Schedule of Classes

13th Sunday in Ordinary Time 
Theme:
(Do Not Fear)
Reading I: 
Wisdom 1: 13-15, 2:23-24(In God’s Image)
Reading II:
2 Cor. 8: 7, 9, 13-15- 17 (That there be Equality)
Gospel:
Mark. 5: 21-43 (Jesus Heals)

Question for Adults:  How has my faith in Jesus brought me through difficulties? We often hear people speaking of their difficulties and how their faith was instrumental in seeing them through.  Sadly, the number of people who realize this truth is very small.  Many people sincerely believe that they are alone in facing difficulty.  Where do you stand in this respect?  Do you remember to turn to God in faith when faced with problems at work, in your family in rocky relationships?  Do you believe that God can help you through them?

Question for Children: When has Jesus helped me face an illness or a painful circumstance? Children need to be taught that Jesus can help them through difficult moments.  One way to do this is by using the stories in the Gospel such as the story in today’s Gospel.  You must make an effort to make the connection for them however.  Help them to realize that what happens in the Gospel is also true in their own lives.  Faith is not stagnant, but rather it lives today.
