I treated our teachers to lunch at the Fairmont Race Track. We all had a great time and even won a few races! Fr. Samuel had to leave for appointments prior to this photo.
I know we join the prayerful gratitude of the Pro Life community with the recent Supreme Court decision, and hope the Gospel of Life touches the hearts of more and more people. Speaking of hearts, we especially pray that the Lord touches the hearts of women (and men) with unplanned pregnancies…that if/when tempted to choose abortion, they may know and believe that the fetus is a developing human person, a child of God, and that they choose life. It’s also a good time to remember ministries like OUR LADY’S INN, that provide care and support for mothers after they give birth.
“My” theatre group, The Fr. Scheid Players, are once again presenting a musical production this summer. We are staging The Little Mermaid at Nerinx Hall High School on the weekend of July 22-24. Ticket information is available at email@example.com. Ann will also be selling tickets in our church lobby next weekend, July 9/10. We love our audience!
Last weekend we had our annual guest missionary, Fr. Joseph Thien Vu, appeal for your generosity for the Catholic Church in Vietnam. If you were away, you can still contribute through Faith Direct, or mark an envelope, Vietnam.
July 1,2021 begins a new fiscal year. It’s a good time to THANK YOU for your financial support of our parish, and all the special collections & appeals, throughout the past year. I do want to highlight the value of contributions to our GOLD ENVELOPE: ENSURING THE FUTURE campaign here at our parish. Gold Envelop donations help in two very important ways: supporting our school (we’ve had no tuition increases in recent years) & capital improvements (allows us to maintain our beautiful campus). So, all your financial support is essential of course, but especially Gold Envelope contributions.
Also, contributions to our SMMA TUITION FUND are extremely valuable. Each year we help about 30 families with reduced tuition that amounts to over $70,000. My personal thanks to all those who donated to our Tuition Fund this last fiscal year.
This Thursday we’re offering our SERVERS’PICNIC. Parents of our wonderful servers, if you didn’t get the detailed information, please call the Office.
Happy 4th of July
