Beginning in October we will be inviting specific grade level students from our Parish.
We want to bless every single child in our Parish over the coming months!
Our children need to know that we as a community of faith are praying for them on Sunday.
And then not only on Sunday, but for the whole month in a special way.

For the month of October, we are inviting all the Pre-school, Pre-K, and Kindergarten students to come to the
9:00am Mass, Sunday October 2nd to receive a blessing. We will bless them after Communion.

We invite all of you to keep these students in prayer this month,
that they can continue to allow the Lord to open their hearts to His presence in their lives so that ultimately,
they can ‘keep the faith forever.’

Christ Caring for People through People

That’s the motto of Stephen Ministry. A Stephen Minister’s role is to bring God’s love into the lives of people who are going through a difficult time. What do Stephen Ministers do? They listen, care, support, encourage, pray with and for a person who is hurting. And in the midst of this confidential, one-to-one, caring relationship, God’s healing love comes pouring through.

If you or someone you know is facing a crisis—large or small—and could benefit from the caring presence of a Stephen Minister, talk to one of our Stephen Leaders:

Ann Clark:

Bill Dickey:
