Now that we are back into the swing of another year of the school cycle, this might be the right time for us to work on our spiritual habits.  This time of transition into a new rhythm allows for opportunities for growth in our spiritual life.  I recommend you take a look at your typical day and typical week, outline the common schedule, and then see where you can incorporate spiritual practices into that way of life. 

All are invited to this ceremony, Sunday, September 15 at 1:30 p.m. in the Parish Center. State Deputy Paul Zielinski and District 10 District Deputy Rick Burmeister will be on hand to conduct the ceremony. In addition to installing our officers, the Council Charter and several awards earned by Council 17043 will be presented. Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony.
This daylong retreat will walk participants through the Great Story of Jesus. This retreat is guaranteed to be a transforming weekend, getting to know Jesus like never before!

Register here.

When? Saturday, October 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The purpose of the Whatsoever You Do Outreach Program is to assist people primarily with their utility bills or rent, especially those facing imminent disconnection or eviction. Amazing is the faith of most of the people who come. It is not uncommon to hear, “It’s all I have.”

All are invited and welcome to join us in praying the Rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy, for the intentions of our children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and all our families and beyond, each Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. in the Church.
On this third Sunday of the Season of Creation, a designation by Pope Francis after the publication of Laudato Si in 2015, we would like to share more of the words of the pope.

The Marriage in Christ Seminar: Friendship with God, Friendship with Our Spouse, In the Holy Spirit

A seminar for couples who desire to strengthen their marriage, who want to establish good patterns of prayer & friendship or who are facing transitions in their lives, e.g., having children, the empty nest, or retirement. The Marriage in Christ seminar invites couples to renew their love and affection for each other and for the Lord, to deepen their unity as a couple and to celebrate the presence of God in ordinary life. God Our Father desires to renew marriage through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Let Him begin with yours!

If you have lost a child before or after birth — whether recently or long ago — please join us for a special Memorial Mass on Thursday, October 10, at 7 p.m. at St. Therese, Little Flower Church in South Bend. You will have the opportunity to record your child’s name in a Book of Remembrance, to take home a silk rose in honor of him or her, and to pray together with others who have suffered the loss of their little ones.
