Many good ideas have come from our planning of the parish feast celebration on September 29.  The main thing to know is that we are going to join together for a potluck meal after the 11:30 a.m. Mass.  So please plan on gathering with your fellow parishioners around 12:30 p.m. in the parish center for food, fellowship, and some particularly “festive” extras to honor the feast day of St. Therese of Lisieux, the “little flower.”  More info to come on what all that fun will look like.

Last Sunday, we celebrated World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. During the Season of Creation between September 1 and October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, major Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, and Anglican organizations have joined to encourage the 2.2 billion Christians worldwide to pray and act on ecological issues.

Today, September 1, is designated as World Day of Care for All Creation. That was a pronouncement of Pope Francis after the publication of his encyclical letter, Laudato Si, in 2015. The challenge around designating a day for special attention is, what happens between September 2 and August 31.

Saturday-Sunday, October 12-13, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
 
Road trip with us to this annual young adult conference in Milwaukee! We'll participate in the Inheritance Conference on Saturday and then explore "Brew City" on Sunday.
 
Inheritance 2019 consists of powerful TED-style talks and workshops given by nationally-known Catholic speakers that are relevant to your life as a young adult. Catholic musicians lead everyone in song and prayer throughout the day.
