Attention Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. If you missed the mandatory Training Program, the make-up date will be on Monday, May 1st from 6:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. in the church. Also for all those who are interested in learning about the ministry of Extra-Ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion or would like to become ministers, please come to to this formation and training meeting. Is the Lord calling you to serve Him?
We are Pleased to announce that on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at 10:00 in the morning we will join together in prayer and worship in a celebratory mass to call down the Holy Spirit on our youth as they receive the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation. Let our prayers remain with them as they continue to discover their faith and continue to develop their relationship with our Lord. Let us pray for our Community as we welcome and support these individuals of our Young Church as they follow their discernment as adult members of our faith. We all can be reminded of Jesus' commission to us in the Gospel of Matthew "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of age." Let us Celebrate in the unity and growth of our faith. We are proud of our Confirmandi of 2017! Let us remain Strong with prayer, and let the peace of Christ reside in our hearts forever.
WE ARE WELL ON OUR WAY! We are more than half way there!!! As of this week, we have received pledges and donations that put us over $2.3 million of our $3 million goal. Thank you so very much in supporting this important work to fix the floor of our Church.
For those of you that have yet to fill out your pledge cards, it's not too late! Please bring your pledge cards to Mass this weekend and place it into the collection basket. Or you can mail your pledge card to the parish center or drop it off at the parish center the next time you're here.
Every dollar counts as we do our best to begin construction the early part of 2018. A little over 500 of our families have participated in giving a pledge or sending a gift to support the cause. There are still many of you that have not been able to give or pledge as of yet. If there are any questions you have about the project, please feel free to call the Parish Center for more information.
Thank you again for your tremendous generosity and support of our St. Bonaventure home.
Audio files to listen to the recorded talks of Fr. Angelos and Fr. Martin on Resisting Happiness Book Study are now available. CD's are also available in limited quantities at the Parish Center. Look for upcoming information on Resisting Happiness Small Group Discussions in the near future.
We all know the things that will make us happy, but we don’t always do them. Why? We’re resistant. With his signature combination of the profound and the practical, New York Times bestselling author Matthew Kelly helps you learn why we sabotage ourselves, feel overwhelmed, set aside our dreams, and lack the courage to simply be ourselves . . . and how to start choosing happiness again. Resisting Happiness will inspire you to break through resistance so you can become the-best-version-of-yourself® and start living with passion and purpose.
