 HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

FROM THE DESK OF DEACON MIKE - Summer is Here!
Lord God,
We put ourselves into Your hands, and pray that You will bless us and our families during the wonderful months of summer. May we all help make our home a place of relaxation, joy, love, peace and safety.    May we be generous and considerate, not thinking only about ourselves, but helping others enjoy the blessings of summertime.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

FROM THE DESK OF DEACON MIKE - Prayer For this week
Always pray to have eyes to see the best in people,
A heart that forgives the worst,
A mind that forgets the bad,
And a soul that never loses faith in God.
 

Calendar Meeting: I would like to invite all groups and organizations in the parish to come to our annual calendar meeting on Monday, July 8th at 7:00 pm.  Bring the dates of your organization’s meetings, fund raising, special Mass dates etc.  If you would like to drop the dates off at the rectory ahead of time, please feel free to do so as it will save time at the meeting.
 

A Marian apparition is a supernatural appearance of Mary to a person (or group of people) on earth. Since the early centuries of the Church, there have been thousands of reported Marian apparitions. “Reported” is a key word here; just because someone says that they saw Mary doesn’t mean that they really did. The Church, under the guidance of the bishop in whose diocese the alleged apparition occurs, carefully investigates alleged apparitions according to a set of criteria established by the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
Vacation/Pilgrimage: Dawn and I will be on vacation next week to Knock, Ireland where a Marian Apparition took place many years ago. I will pray for the parish and all of you as we experience the place where our Mother Mary came to the island.
Eucharistic Adoration: Friday’s at Our Lady of Victory from 1:00 pm to 5:00pm.
 

Collection for the weekend of June 15-16: $2250.00.
 

MISSION COOPERATIVE PLAN COLLECTION [Diocese in the Philippines] - $396.00.
 

THE LIVING FAITH BOOKLETS for the next three months are now available in English and Spanish at the entrances of church at no cost.

CHICKEN DINNER UPDATE:
This was our 15th Annual Chicken dinner and it turned out to be very successful for our parish.  I would like to thank all of the volunteers who worked so hard at many aspects of our event.  We always work well to make this event run as smoothly as we did.  We were able to raise $8,576.19 for the needs of the parish.  Mark your calendar for next year’s 16th Annual Chicken dinner on Sunday, June 7th 2020.
Thank you!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
FROM THE DESK OF DEACON MIKE - Happy Father’s Day to all Fathers, Grandfathers, Godfathers, and father figures in children’s lives.  In his humbleness St. Joseph is the pure example of how we should live as Catholic fathers.  Hard working, humble, and loving.  Let us men allow Joseph to be our guide and model for our lives.    

 Vocations:   Think about the last time that you have encouraged anyone in the way of becoming a priest, deacon, or religious sister?  Or maybe told them that they would be a good Lector, Minister of the Eucharist, or perhaps a Faith Formation Teacher.  Quite often people need a nudge from the Holy Spirit and that spirit may be working thru you.    

 Baptisms:  We have a few Baptisms coming up, one is on a Friday afternoon.  Just know that we are willing to work with any family who want their children baptized.  Have them call the rectory and we will work with them.     

Summer Fun. Please watch the bulletin for announcements for our upcoming parish picnic, spaghetti dinner, and Youth Group activities.      HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE!!!

FROM THE DESK OF DEACON MIKE - Pentecost: Today is Pentecost Sunday where we celebrate the Birthday of the Church.  Here is a simple Prayer that you can pray this week as a family. Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love.  Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.  And you shall renew the face of the earth. Let us pray. O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Chicken Dinner: Many thanks to all who helped our Chairperson Fred Bauer in any way for the Chicken Dinner.  Many of you were there all day, some helped half the day, many, many others bought or sold tickets.  It was a very good turnout and is very much appreciated by me.  It is amazing how hard all of you work for the parish.  
Confirmation:  Three of our teenagers, Tatiana Officer, Selina Vargas,  and Armani Cortes received the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Athol Springs last Monday.  Thanks to Cheryl and Catalina for their diligence in getting them ready for this big event in their lives.  
Candles:  Please do not blow the candles out after mass, use the snuffers. Blowing out the candles causes wax to fall onto the altar linens and carpets.If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.

FROM THE DESK OF DEACON MIKE - Summer Time - Finally it seems like spring is in the air and summer is not too far behind.  We need to keep those people in the Mid-West and the Southern states in our prayers from the floods and Tornado damage. 

Remember to thank God for the gift of Summer - Green grass and trees, the smell of fresh cut grass, summer rains and cookouts; the sounds of laughing children and singing birds; the beauty of sunshine and blue skies.  Amen.

New Website and Facebook Page Coming soon.  We will be starting up new social media sites to get information out about the Parish and the Catholic Church in general in a timely manner.

Pentecost Sunday is next week - Because you are part of the body of the Church, Pentecost is the Church's birthday, and yours as well. And like any birthday, it's a cause for celebration. The word Pentecost is Greek and it means "50th day." Fifty days after Easter Sunday, we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and their followers, and the beginning of their Earthly ministry to make disciples of all nations. What are we doing as a parish and individuals to make disciples of all nations?

Have an attitude of gratitude!!!
