Vietnam Mission Appeal July 25-26
on 07/16/2015

Passionist Missionaries of Vietnam

Father Peter Gardiner will speaking at all the Masses the weekend of July 25-26.

The appeal is for the training of the students to become priests.  There are 40 students in training and they rely entirely on donations for their support.

I am not collecting money for the orphanages, I am collecting money for our future priests.  I will share some of my experiences regarding the orphanages ad may work there, to provide some information.

From the Pastor
on 07/15/2015

My Dear Parishioners,

Oktoberfest is now behind us and I want to express my sincerest gratitude for all of you who volunteered your time and talents this year. WHAT AN EVENT! Our parish festival can only happen if we have people who are willing to commit themselves, and it takes many hours of preparation, clean up, and of course planning to make it a success. Thank you all for this great time of fellowship and wonderful witness to our community!

I often find writing a weekly bulletin column to be a little challenging since I want to be able to provide our parish with a weekly thought of how we can recommit our lives more fully to the Lord Jesus Christ. This theme will serve as the essence of my bulletin columns each week. Did you know? This past week, July 19-25, the Church celebrated National NFP awareness week. The theme for this year was: ALL NATURAL! NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING GOOD FOR THE BODY. GREAT FOR THE SOUL. The teaching of the Church has always been that sexual union, reserved for the context of marriage, must be open to the possibility of children. Yet, the sad reality is that many Christians and sadly many Catholics simply disregard this fundamental teaching. Now, as we conclude this NFP week please take time to research for yourself the beauty of NFP. You may want to explore: http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/marriage-and-family/natural-family-planning/awareness-week/. In our world God has commanded us to follow His directives and, as we all know, sometimes this is contradictory to what is taught in our world today.

This week I invite us to ask ourselves one question: What do I believe makes being a Roman Catholic difficult in our world today? As you ponder this question remember what Jesus has said to us: Do not be afraid--for I am with you! My brothers and sisters this week may we once again entrust ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and may the Heart of Jesus Christ give us the consolation and the peace to follow Him more readily.

May the Lord Bless You and Keep You!

Fr. Timothy Kalista
