July 2020

 

Welcome to July. Some things I will miss this July: our annual servers picnic and the Cross Roads Pro-Life Walkers. But, I am looking forward to our SMMA Graduation Mass on July 30th.

I wanted to highlight the Night of Adoration, Praise & Worship that our SMMA Youth Ministry is offering on Sunday evening, July 12th. May the intercession of our parish patron keep all our youth close to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Further information is in this bulletin.

Also in this bulletin, our Adoration Chapel is in need of two new coordinators. My personal thanks to Anne Hoffman & Linda Tensing for your time & talent this past year.

The ACA needs your support especially this year. Thanks to those who have already returned their cards/gifts. Go to: aca.archstl.org for further information. Please help our parish do our part to enable the charitable ministries of the Archdiocese to help those less fortunate.

In this Sunday’s Gospel Jesus says….”Come to me all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.” So many people in our world today indeed feel very burdened. We try to do our part to ease burdens by our prayerful support and the charitable ministries of our parish. Jesus goes on to say….”Take my yoke upon you…for my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” Usually, our first response is…What! My burdens don’t feel very light at all! The yoke (our burdens, difficulties, challenges) is a little easier when we all pull together. Remember when the pandemic first begin, that was the message….”we’re all in this together.” And by prayerfully “yoking ourselves to Christ,” He is able to carry us along the journey of life…as the famous Footsteps poem so beautifully illustrates.

On this Fourth of July weekend, we give thanks for the freedoms we enjoy in our country and pray for peace in our hearts and on our streets.

God bless you!
