Parish News...

Fr. Terry - October 22, 2017

On Wednesday, Bishop Rhoades will be in town and visiting our parish for the Redeemer Radio Sharathon, and to give a talk to one of the classes of the Forever Learning Institute. Tom Labuzienksi teaches a class on the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, known as the Camino.  Translated as “the Way” (of Saint James), you can find an excellent movie titled “The Way” from about five years ago by Emilio Estevez, with his father Martin Sheen as the lead role.  It is a good way of getting a flavor for what this pilgrimage is about.  Bishop Rhoades has done the Camino, and is happy to share his own stories with the students in the class as well as anyone else who is interested in hearing about it (the teacher has opened up the class to the public).  The class starts at 9 a.m. here in our Parish Center.

Ministry Morning of Reflection

Saturday, November 4, 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Little Flower will host a ministry morning of reflection for our liturgical ministers – Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lectors, Mass Coordinators, and Altar Servers-both current and those who are interested in joining.  Come join us as we examine how ministry forms us as disciples on a journey.  We will also have the opportunity to break out into our individual ministry groups to review procedures and policies.

Our Diocese requires liturgical ministers to attend at least one spiritual, educational, or liturgical formation opportunity per year.  This will satisfy this requirement.
