Ready to Be Part of Cave Quest?

 

Paperwork is due June 10: after that we cannot guarantee t-shirt or CD.

 

Return your forms to the Parish Office or in the collection basket (in an envelope marked "VBS").

 

The great thing about VBS is that EVERYONE can be part of the fun! Check out the display in the lobby for additional opportunities to be involved even if you can't join us in person that week.

Fortnight for Freedom: Witness to Freedom

June 21 - July 4

 

Sign up to receive the daily email (with a scripture reflection, prayer, and call to action) for each day of the "Fortnight for Freedom".

 

Learn more about the Fortnight or view additional resources.

 

This is also a great time to learn about Civilize It 2016, a non-partisan movement and a call for all of us to help change the tone, follow our faith, and quiet the quarrels in our day-to-day lives. It’s not about winning the debate. It is about witnessing the love that is at the heart of our faith. 

 

In addition, there will be a special program in celebration of The Fortnight for Freedom at St. James of the Valley on Sunday, June 26 at 7 PM. All are encouraged to attend and wear red, white and blue!

 

Hold firm, fast, pray, and insist upon what belongs to you by right - our first, most cherished liberty: our freedom to practice our religion.

Our Parish Goal: 175 Packs of Colored Pencils

for Valley Interfaith's Back 2 School Program

Bring donations to the Parish Office before July 22.

 

Last year, Valley Interfaith distributed over 1,100 backpacks filled with school supplies. This year they are asking our parish to take on the job of gathering 175 packs of colored pencils for the program. 

 

Surely they can count on us to meet (and exceed!) this goal! School supplies should be going on sale soon, so keep your eyes open!

Jubilee Year of Mercy

December 8, 2015 through November 20, 2016

 

"We need constantly to contemplate the mystery of mercy. It is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and peace.

Our salvation depends on it...

 

At times we are called to gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father's action in our lives."

~ Pope Francis, in the Bull of Indiction

for the Year of Mercy

 

Learn more about how to fully embrace, celebrate, and live the mercy of God!

Remembering Your Loved One

 

Consider having the red sanctuary candle by the

tabernacle lit "in honor of" or "in memory of" your loved

one. The suggested donation would be $5, and the candle would burn for one week. Your loved one would be

mentioned in the bulletin and during the weekend

intentions. If you are interested, contact Joanne at the

parish office (522.3680).
