St. Mary’s Adoration Committee

The members of St. Mary’s Adoration Committee wish to express gratitude to all who participated in the 40 Hours of Solemn Adoration preceding Holy Week. The chapel was filled with the mercy, compassion, love, peace, consolation, inspiration of our Lord. We know it added to the holiness of our Holy Week, and Triduum celebrations. As was proclaimed at Mass on Easter Monday, “The Lord has risen from the dead; let us all exult and rejoice, for he reigns for all eternity, alleluia.”   He remains with us and blesses us through the Holy Eucharist, and through each other.

As the spring season progresses, and schedules change, we invite you to spend time in the presence of Jesus in the chapel. The blessings are bountiful. St. Mary’s is in need of additional persons in weekly adoration. Please call Cathy Lippincott at 499-0999, or Linda Howard at 298-2567, or email Ginny Olsen at ginnyo22@verizon.net with your availability/commitment, or to have your questions answered. Pope John Paul II wrote, “Jesus awaits us in this Sacrament of Love.” Adoration of our Lord in the Holy Eucharist is a gift of immeasurable worth. Please join us!

Traveling Catholic Faith CD for April

Easter is here and with it comes the beginning of the church and new life – spring time is upon us.  Our April Traveling Catholic Faith CD is once again by Father Robert Barron from Word on Fire.  He talks to us about how the resurrected Jesus appears to his disciples, how fearful they were to be targeted next.  He delivers a message of peace with a mission. This is the mission of the Church, to proceed in spreading the news about Christ imbued with the life-affirming, sin-forgiving power of the Holy Spirit. It’s a mission that will connect us to God. The CD is titled “Life in the Church”.  As always the CDs are on the table in the back of the church. If you can’t find any, look next weekend as we replenish them during the week. For more info call the parish office during normal office hours at 298-0265.

Catholic Appeal Update

We are fast approaching the 50% mark of our $60,000 parish goal for the 2015 Catholic Appeal. St. Mary’s parishioners have made 146 gifts or pledges totaling $27,516 to date, for an average of $188 per gift. If you have not yet made a pledge to this year’s Appeal, we urge you to do so and help us reach our goal. The Catholic Appeal supports many important Diocesan programs and ministries, and Bishop O’Connell is most grateful for your generous response.
