Music Ministry is so important in our weekly worship of God, and we are so grateful for the creativity and dedication that music director Daniel Owens brings to this ministry. If you would like to share your musical talent (voice or instrumental) with our parish through our adult choir, children’s choir, African choir, or youth band, make sure you talk with Daniel after one of our weekend Masses. Adult choir rehearsal starts this week!
On Sunday evening, our Foundations of Faith program gets started for the fall faith formation season. Being formed in God’s image is a life-long endeavor, and our mission as a parish is to support you in that effort, whether you are seven or seventy. You are invited to join your fellow parishioners through the programs being offered. To see what’s available this fall, click “Formation” on our parish website.
One Adult Faith Formation opportunity will be starting on-line at the end of this month (and running for eight weeks), focusing on the Gospel of Mark (which we will be hearing at Sunday Mass during 2021). To enrich your experience of weekend worship, sign up for this gospel study by this Wednesday using the information in the bulletin.
Our parish is participating in the 40 Days for Life observance starting on 22 September. There are various ways to participate in encouraging a culture of life, starting with simply praying, and so please use the contact information that is included on the bulletin insert this week to become more involved.
Many parishioners contribute to the monthly 2nd collection for parish tuition assistance. These funds are awarded on the basis of financial need to students at Catholic schools. I received several messages from parents recently expressing deep gratitude for the help they have received over the years, and so I pass that appreciation along to all who contribute each month!
