Our Parish is blessed with many ministries and service organizations, all of them staffed entirely by volunteers. Like you, these people recognize they have gifts from God and they want to express their gratitude by helping others. The problem, however, is that we may get tired, begin to burn out, or lose our motivation. We all need a spiritual lift from time to time, and we believe this program can give us that.
The focus of the workshop is the parish family growing in prayer and faith. The aim is to foster spiritual renewal and growth for those who serve in our parish. Every person involved in ministry, at any level, should attend.
Please take a few moments now to mark this event on your calendar and make plans to join us on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at 8:30 a.m. for Mass followed by a continental breakfast. The Appreciation workshop will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the church. In thanksgiving for all that you give in love a luncheon will be provided after the workshop in the Parish Hall. There will be a closing prayer and dismissal after lunch.

Undies Sundays Entire Month of September
Underwear is the most under-donated, yet most needed, item of clothing. No one should be deprived of the simple daily necessity of clean underwear that many of us take for granted. Hygiene and physical comfort are only a part of this basic human need. Sponsored by Catholic Charities, our Parish will collect new underwear, t-shirts and socks for men (small, medium and large) during the entire month of September to donate to those who are homeless, living in shelters or who are on a low income. Your donations may be dropped in any of the Undies Sundays containers found in the vestibule area of the church.
We ask that you pause a moment to offer a prayer for those in our community who are ill, suffering or in need, in particular for: Kevin Noonan, Becky Kirchner, Jim Oneill, Luke Fossell, Pat and Horace Davis, Cheryl Carter, June Bearden, Kathy Olson, Jennifer Frank, Kathy Grave, Stephen Thorne, Alan Arsenault, Ellie Wargo, Antionette Davis, Patricia Edmonds, Brian Johnson, Ruth Donahue, Chester Zondlewski, Robert Kirchner, Logan Savoie, Donna Lybrand, Patricia Clisham, Karen Clisham, Emilian, Carlos, Charles, Michel, Fernando, Nicole Spensley, Woylan Robinson, Whitney Medlock, Ines Ramis, Jean Kiblin, Martha Grosse, Nettie Taylor, Richard Nolasco, David Pasulka, Silvia Richard, and Josh Jernigan.
A time-honored practice of the Christian faithful is to walk with another, to seek God and grow in ability to hear his voice. If you desire to grow your relationship with him, prayerfully consider spiritual direction.
