Following a meeting with various community organizations this morning (August 25) and hours of working side-by-side with Kokomo Urban Outreach in one of the harder hit areas of town, we have determined that the most effective way our parish can help our hurting and healing community is with our prayerful and financial support. We will have a second collection at this weekend’s Masses to help with upcoming needs in our community. Continue to be the hands and feet of Christ whenever and wherever possible.
UPDATE: An additional 2nd collection will be available this coming weekend(Sept 3 & 4)
If you (or another parishioner you know) had a home impacted by the storm, please let us know, because we want to help.
Charity begins at home — and your parish home wants to be there for you.
If you’ve been impacted, just let us know at email@example.com or call the parish office at 452-6021. If no one is there, please leave a message.
Let us know your name (or that of the other parishioner(s) affected), contact information, and the type of help you need.
The Rhum Music Academy was originally scheduled to perform at the FunFest at Saint Joan of Arc, but when they had to cancel, Gary quickly shifted gears to arrange this benefit concert. If you can, come out to support our brothers and sisters, and spend some time together as a community.
In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.
(1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Due to the continued power outage at Saint Joan of Arc, the Friday morning Mass has been moved to Saint Patrick. Please join us at 8:15 AM as we continue to pray for all those affected by yesterday’s devastating storms.
On August 18th, a son of the parish–Dustin Nelson–will begin the first step of his journey with the Congregation of the Holy Cross as a postulant. Those wishing to express their support can send letters and cards to:
P.O. Box 782
c/o Holy Cross College
Notre Dame, IN 46556
Here’s a short description of Dustin’s journey so far. Our prayers are certainly with him as he continues to discern God’s will in his life.
Dustin Nelson is a native of Kokomo, Indiana, and a Taylor High School graduate. After formally entering the Church in 2011, he spent the next four years at Indiana University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in history. Although hearing God’s call long before he was even Catholic, it was in college where he started really entertaining the idea of a religious vocation. After two years of discerning with other orders, going to discernment groups, and talking with various priests, he finally decided on the Congregation of Holy Cross. Dustin is interested in teaching and the possibility of serving others outside the U.S.
During his first year with the Congregation of Holy Cross, he will be a “Postulant”, and he will take classes, engage in ministry to the needy in the South Bend area, do house chores, pray, and learn what it means to live in a community with other brothers and priests.
Fr. Hasser invites you to attend this event in the Parish Hall.
A brief presentation by our priests and some of our parish leaders/staff will lead into Q & A.
The goal is to look at the current state of our parish, provide transparency, and begin a discussion on how to become a great parish that is an expression of our members.
