Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jul 31, 2022

Our Knights of Columbus Council (and Katie’s Ladies Auxiliary) faithfully serve our parish in many different ways, and we are so grateful to both groups.  This weekend they celebrate the installation of new officers, and we congratulate Bruce Blatchley as he is installed as Grand Knight, (and Irma Woerner as president of Katies Ladies.)   Please call the parish office if you would like more information about joining the Knights of Columbus (or Katie’s Ladies Auxiliary).

       We often list nearby workshops and retreats for deepening the everyday experience of marriage in the weekly bulletin.  If your marriage is troubled in any way at this time, please consult details about a “Retrouvaille” weekend coming up on Labor Day weekend.  A number of parish couples have found this weekend helpful in the past, and I urge you to be pro-active in confronting relationship difficulties as soon as possible, rather than waiting until it is too late to bring about deeper understanding and possible healing.

       Our Drexel Voyager senior group has been a great blessing for many of our parish members, and they are celebrating their 12th Anniversary this month!  Our seniors have formed a supportive sense of community through their monthly luncheons (often with speakers) at local restaurants, and other activities.  New members are always welcome and encouraged to join.  The anniversary luncheon will be at Gladchuk’s Restaurant on Thursday 4 August (please register by this weekend.) There is also information about their upcoming retreat day in September on a bulletin insert.

       A number of parishioners have been struggling when family members identify as LGBTQ+, and so we are starting a parish support group as a safe space for sharing, prayer, and learning together.  Our parishioner Laura Weber brings her social work background and pastoral experience to facilitate the group.  For more details, use the contact information in the bulletin.
