I hope this weekend you were able to meet our seminarian, Jonathan Evangelista.  He will write an introduction for our next bulletin so you can get learn more about him and his journey toward priesthood, both before and during his recent years in seminary formation.  I am delighted to have another brother in the Lord to live the common life with and to share my ministry with.  Jesus sent out his disciples two-by-two, and this is a beautiful way that I can get a “dose” of that collaboration that I live all throughout my priesthood, though in many ways “from afar.”  

Barnaby’s pizza tickets will be sold this weekend (May 18 & 19) after all Masses in the main church entryway!

You can purchase a ticket for a Large 3 topping pizza for only $12.00! Tickets will continue to be available at the Parish Office during normal business hours.
Give yourself a mini retreat and join us for the next Blessed Brunch from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday, May 25 in the home of parishioner, Katherine O'Donnell, 2834 Rockne Dr, South Bend, IN 46615. We will enjoy food and fellowship, a talk on Lectio Divina, small group discussion, and prayer.

Every story we bring to you is full of heartbreak, usually followed by amazing faith. This one is no different.

Betty (not her actual name) has a son with diabetes, who has lost his left leg, three-quarters of his right foot, is in a wheelchair, and has had two heart attacks. He and his four children recently moved in with her. She is now a caretaker of five people.

In today’s Gospel, we are introduced to Jesus’ one new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you. That love is a sign that we are his disciples. We can have right thinking, obey all the rules, faithfully attend Mass and be active in ministry. If we do all these things but do not have love for one another, we are not his disciples. What does that mean? And what does that have to do with healing?

Abbey of Gethsemani & Bourbon Trail, Kentucky

The Abbey of Gethsemani, the Trappist monastery where Thomas Merton was a monk, is nestled in the heart of the Bourbon Trail, the historical epicenter of bourbon production. Come renew your spirit on this young adult pilgrimage which will explore the intersection of faith and culture, sacred and profane, spiritual and physical refreshment.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m., there will be music led by Mike Nolan and Barb Kleaveland and opportunities to receive healing prayer.
