40 Hours Devotion to the Blessed Sacrament
As has become our tradition during our parish anniversary weekend, we will have 40 Hours of Devotion beginning after the school Mass on Friday, October 3rd. There are signup sheets in the narthex for individuals, families or ministry groups to pray for an hour next weekend. We still have several spots to fill, particularly after Mass on Saturday and in the early morning hours on Sunday. We will close with Benediction at 3:00pm on Sunday, October 5th. Please plan to spend an hour with our Lord giving thanks for what we have in our lives, our parish and our country.

Are you interested in learing more about the Catholic Faith?
We welcome all who would be interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith, and maybe even becoming Catholic. The Catholic Church traces its beginnings to Jesus Christ. Our Lord gave us the Church, and through the Church, we have been given the Magisterium, the Sacraments, and the Bible, and so much more, all guided by the Holy Spirit. If you have any questions or would like to
make an appointment to talk, call Patty Norris at 575 - 0119 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call Fr. Michael Cordier at 575-0119. May the Spirit help you ask a question and begin the most exciting journey of a lifetime.
