APPRECIATION: In appreciation for the six years that Fr. Ouseph has served our parish, we will honor him with a Hamburger Supper.  The free meal will be held on Saturday, July 23rd after Mass. Burgers, fries, beans, and tea will be provided by the parish. If you wish to bring a dessert to be shared, it would be welcomed. Please make plans to attend.

SECOND COLLECTION: This weekend, our diocese will take up the Peter’s Pence Collection, which provides Pope Francis with the funds he needs to carry out his charitable works around the world.  The proceeds benefit the most disadvantaged: victims of war, oppression, and disasters. Join our Holy Father as a witness of charity to those who are suffering.

MINISTER SCHEDULES: New minister schedules for Altar Servers, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, and Ushers are ready to be picked up.  In an effort to save postage, please get yours from the back table.

KJZT JUNIORS: The next meeting of the KJZT Junior Division will be Wednesday, July 6 at 7 pm in the Smid Center.

SYMPATHY: Please remember in your prayers the soul and family of Nancy Gerik Stenseth and Dorothy Gerik who went to their eternal rest. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.  May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen

CHOIR PRACTICE: There will be Choir practice after Mass on Monday, June 27th . Anyone is welcome to attend. We are always looking for new singers.
