BELL CHOIR THANKS
A BIG "THANK YOU" goes to all the members of our Parish who contributed to getting our Hand Bells refurbished. Also thanks to the Knights of Columbus and the Parish Men's Club for their contributions. The bells have been sent off - refurbished - and returned. They look AWESOME! Just wanted to let everyone know the job is complete and each of our Bell Choir members thank you very much.
God Bless Each of You!

"JESUS WENT UP ON THE MOUNTAIN AND THERE HE SAT DOWN WITH HIS DISCIPLES"
For the next four weeks of Ordinary Time, we will hear the "Bread of Life Discourse" from the Gospel of John. Jesus promised to give his flesh as bread for the life of the world. He calls and sends priests to carry on this lifegiving mission.
If you feel that God might be calling to serve his church as a Catholic Priest, contact
the Office of Vocations for assistance with discerning your vocation:
"The hand of the Lord feeds us," says the Psalmist, "he answers all our needs." Both Elisha's servant in the first reading and the disciples in the Gospel story who witnessed the feeding of the five thousand saw this happen. As good stewards, we are called to do the same.
Readings for next weekend will be
Exodus 16:2-4, 12-15 Ephesians 4:17, 20-24 John 6:24-35
We invite you to read and study these passages for your own reflection as we prepare for the liturgy we will celebrate as a parish community.
