 SPECIAL COLLECTION: There will be a second collection this weekend for the Catholic Home Missions.  One way that this appeal works to strengthen home mission dioceses in the United States is by funding seminarian formation in poor dioceses.  The blessing of seminarians places a financial burden on these dioceses, where educating each seminarian costs $35-$40K per year. Your support is needed for these young men, so that they might go back and serve their parishes. Please strengthen the Church at home with your gift.

COUNCIL MEETINGS: The Finance Council  will meet on Monday, July 13th, at 6:30 p.m. in the  Parish Hall.  The Pastoral Council will meet immediately after, at 7:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall.

GRIEF SUPPORT: A grief support group meeting will be held 7:00 p.m. Thursday evening, July 16th at St. Joseph’s Hall next to St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  This is a support group for those in the community who want to gain a better understanding of all the changes experienced in the grief process.

WEST 4TH DEGREE KC ASSEMBLY: Knights of Columbus Assembly 2391 has changed its regular meeting time to 7:30pm. This change will commence with the July meeting.

Novena Prayer to the
Immaculate Heart of Mary

O Most Blessed Mother, heart of love, heart of mercy, ever listening, caring, consoling, hear our prayer. As your children, we implore your intercession with Jesus your Son. Receive with understanding and compassion the petitions we place before you today, especially … (special intention).

We are comforted in knowing your heart is ever open to those who ask for your prayer. We trust to your gentle care and intercession, those whom we love and who are sick or lonely or hurting. Help all of us, Holy Mother, to bear our burdens in this life until we may share eternal life and peace with God forever. Amen.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!
