Our Faith Formation programs are now gearing up to start in September, and our core programs are presented on the cover of the bulletin this weekend. For planning purposes, we ask you to register your family as soon as possible on our parish website (www.saintdrexel.org). Please note that we are in need of catechists for the Foundations of Faith program that meets on Sunday evenings. If you can serve the young people of our community in this way, please use the contact information in the bulletin. Parishioners of all ages are invited to participate in continuing faith formation so that we can fulfill our stated parish mission of “forming loving disciples.”
If you are an adult Catholic who never completed initiation into the Church through the Sacrament of Confirmation, please take note that we are offering adult preparation sessions this September to be able to celebrate the sacrament in October. Information about registration is included in the bulletin.
Our liturgical music program is an important part of the worship experience here at our parish, and many of the musical groups will soon be resuming rehearsals after a well-deserved summer break. You can find more information about these groups in the bulletin, and you are encouraged to contact our music director Daniel Owens if you wish to become involved.
A two-sided insert in the bulletin this weekend details our year-long calendar of parish social events. Throughout the year we schedule activities to help bring us closer together as a faith community, so please keep this insert posted at home for future reference. We are grateful to Noemi and Hobbes Soto (our new Social Activities coordinators) and to all the individual Social Activities leaders who keep these events organized with such enthusiasm!
Thanks for your poor box donation of $977.50 last weekend which will be sent through Catholic Charities Hawaii to aid wildfire victims in Maui.
