SJA will have May Crowning on May 6th. All children wanting to participate are asked to bring a flower.
We are now taking donations for the Raffle for the combined Turkey Dinner/ Bazaar that is slated for Oct. 21. If you or your group would like to donate you can put it in the collection plate marked Turkey Dinner/Bazaar or bring by the office. If you are donating a gift card we ask that you please purchase it and bring to the office because we can no longer purchase them at TDECU. We will be going to the printer the first week in June so please let us know ASAP so we can get you on the donation list.
In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus explains the meaning of the scriptures. Like the disciples, when we offer and receive forgiveness our hearts burn because we encounter the risen Christ within us. Have you considered answering the call to “help the poor find forgiveness and healing in their life” by joining the Society of St. Vincent de Paul?
Next week, we will take up the Catholic Home Missions Appeal. Right now, over 40 percent of dioceses in the United States are considered home mission territory because they are unable to fund the essential pastoral work needed in their communities. Your support of this appeal helps ease the struggle of these dioceses. Please prayerfully consider how you can support this appeal. More information can be found at www.usccb.orghome-missions.
If you would like to purchase altar flowers for either parish on a particular weekend please call the office at 548-2020 ext. 4.
