You Are Invited!
   On Tuesday, July 14, 2009 at 7:15pm in Our Lady of Lourdes/St. Joseph parish center, at 844 First NH turnpike, in Northwood, The Institute for Catholic thought and Culture will present KEEP THE PEACE, A PRIMER FOR PRAYING IN HIS PRESENCE.  The presentation will be given by Karen Puza.  Admission is free.  No registration is necessary.  If you have a Bible, please bring it to the presentation.  The program is for everyone, even if you are a seasoned adorer.  Come and learn about the beauty of Adoration and ways to pray during this sacred encounter.
   “Go to your adoration as one would go to Heaven, to the divine banquet.  Tell yourself, in four hours, in two hours, in one hour, our Lord will give me an audience of grace and love.  He has invited me, He is waiting for me, He is longing for me.”       
                                                 St. Peter Julian Eymard.

   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, September 27, 2009.  All students must be registered by September 27th.  Second year students must have completed year one in full, i.e., two classes per month from September through April.  Attendance at Generation of Faith only does not satisfy the requirements for Confirmation.  All students are also asked to attend Mass on a weekly basis.  There are registration forms in the entrance of the church.

14th Sunday in Ordinary Time 
(Faith in Christ)
Reading I: 
Ezekiel 2: 2-5 (A Prophet Has Been Among Us)
Reading II:
2 Cor. 12: 7- 10 (Weak Yet Strong
Mark. 6: 1-6 (A Prophet at Home)

Question for Adults:  What is one thing I can do this week to grow in confidence that God guides my life?  Life often comes to us in such a way that we easily lose sight of the fact that God is there for us no matter what.  We forget that we can rely on God’s goodness and love for us.  At times we do not even believe that God cares.  Relying on God is not always easy.  We must have enormous Faith.  Do we have such a Faith?  If not, why not?

Question for Children: What is one thing I can do this week to help a classmate grow in his or her self confidence?  Self-confidence is so important for children.  However, it needs to be built up and nourished.  A child can easily help his/her friend or classmate in this process.  Spend some time with your child this week and teach them the art of encouraging others.  It will be beneficial to your child and to many other with whom they share.
