This Sunday, we celebrate Jesus as King of the Universe. First of all, what an epic title for our Lord to possess! Not king of England, or Europe, or even the world; King of the UNIVERSE. King of everything.
This celebration was established in 1925 as a way to fight secularism, the culture’s push to exclude God from man’s way of thinking and living. This shove from our secularized culture today is stronger than ever, with relativism as its sidekick.
Saint Thérèse, Little Flower Catholic Church is seeking to hire a business manager for the parish. This essential member of the parish staff is responsible for supporting the pastor in the stewardship of the parish's finances, facilities, and personnel.
Our parish Thanksgiving Mass will be at 9:30 am this Thursday. Please join us, and bring along a little something for your table to be blessed, whether it be a bottle of wine or loaf of bread or anything else (as long as it doesn’t make our mouths water during Mass!) I will bless your food at the end of Mass and you can take it home to unite your Thanksgiving table with the Lord’s Eucharistic table and with your parish family!
Join us for a four-week book study with the Blessed Is She Advent Journal for all moms of young children, from infant through grade school! The study will be held at a parishioner's home on Saturday mornings, on December 1, 8, 15, and 22.
I’ve been doing lots of work with the high school students. We’ve had some very good discussions about apologetics, the Trinity, and the lives of the Saints. A couple weeks ago, we had a blast playing hide and seek with Father Terry in the parish center!
Our Small Things with Great Love three-year pledge-drive is progressing well. As of Monday the 5th, we have already passed 25% of our goal with the help of our early pledge families. Now this weekend the rest of us are making our pledges together. I would like to begin with a thank you to the parish for the support that so many of you have shown leading up to now. Many have responded to our capital campaign and we hope to share the results of your generosity next week. When each family gives even $2, $3, $5 or more per day over the next three years, it will allow us to enrich our parish for decades to come with a comfortable, clean, and prayerful church that invites others to be a part of the true worship we offer here. Thank you for your continued support.
