From the Pastor
Today's Gospel is the fourth of seven "I am" declarations that Jesus makes about himself in the Gospel of John. In other ones, Jesus says that He is the Bread of Life, the Light of the World, the Resurrection and the Life, the Gate, the True Vine, the Way, & the Door. Each of these declarations tells us something unique about Jesus & who He is as the Son of God. For example - the image He uses today of the sheep & the shepherd; through it Jesus is telling us something that is central to our faith. Like a shepherd, He leads us, feeds us, protects us & saves us from trouble & death. Considering the other six "I am" declarations - Jesus is everything to us. He provides everything we need - since Jesus is our "I am" we need nothing else in life. Today in prayer let us tell Jesus how grateful we are for His guidance & love - tell Him that you want to follow Him wherever He leads you!
The Friday 6:30 am Mass in the rectory chapel has been suspended for the month of May.
Blood Drive May 17th
The American Red Cross will be conducting another blood drive on Sunday 5/17/15 from 8:30 a.m. till 1:30 p.m. in the school gym. Please consider donating, as there is a constant need for blood in our area!
In the weeks ahead, our parish representative from Solutio, Inc., will be setting up the advertising for our website for the year.
Please consider participating in this effort since the revenue from the ads is what makes the website possible at no cost to the parish.
It’s a great way to get your name in front of the families in the parish. Advertisements may be purchased for a business, family memorial, or you can sponsor an ad supporting Catholic Charities, Knights of Columbus, Vocations, etc.
Please give these ideas some thought. We need and appreciate your help! If you are interested or just curious as to prices and want more information, please contact 440.378.5773 or Sponsorship@SolutioSoftware.com.
