October 15 Updates

Our eighth graders have been discussing the great mystery that is God. When given the words of St. Augustine, “You have created us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you,” the students interpreted them as:

“God created us out of love, for us to believe in Him. He put a curiosity in our hearts making us want to discover the mystery of God. That fire He sparked can only be put out at the time of our death when we will know the mystery of God.”

Truer words were never spoken!

Our Confirmation candidates grow nearer to the sacrament and will take part in their Confirmation Retreat starting with the 11:30 Mass on Oct. 22. Please pray for our candidates as they approach the sacrament which will be administered on Sunday, Nov. 12 at 2 p.m., Bishop John Fleasy, presiding.

Our next First Reconciliation parent meeting is Sunday, Nov. 5 following the Family Liturgy. First Reconciliation will be celebrated Saturday, Dec. 9.

Our series, “Mary Queen of Heaven,” continues this Monday at 1 p.m. and Wednesday night at 7 p.m. with the topic: “Mary, Mother of Sorrows,” when we will hear how Mary’s sorrows began long before the Crucifixion of her Son. Consider joining us for an enlightening and thought-provoking experience.
