Have you visited our Homilies page recently?
Several people have asked about homilies they have heard from our priests and would enjoy listening to again or sharing with others. We upload these homilies to our Homilies page for this purpose.
This past weekend at 11:00 Mass, Fr. Akeriwe spoke about the tragedy of 9/11, gave special recognition to our first responders, and spoke of all in relation to the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. It is a must listen!
The Bazaar is from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm in the Parish Hall.
The Fall Bazaar includes seasonal and holiday craft booths, a fall bake sale, children’s games and crafts, and an old fashioned homemade chicken noodle dinner.

This Sunday, September 21 is Catechetical Sunday. There will be a blessing of all catechists and parents as primary catechists at all Masses.
On Catechetical Sunday we highlight the work of catechists in our parishes and our school, but we also the work of parents and guardians who are the primary instructors of the Catholic faith. Through our Baptismal promises we are all charged with and encouraged to take seriously our role in passing along the Catholic faith to the next generation.
The brown bags will be distributed after the Masses this weekend & may be returned to church and placed in the boxes marked for “Haiti” located at the entrance doors. The Medical Mission trip will take place the first week of November, and the medicine items will need to be prepared for distribution prior to the trip.
The medicines needed this time are:
Antacid tablets (no liquids)
Adult multivitamin tablets (no gummies)
Infant Polyvisol vitamin drops (generic okay)
Adult Tylenol tablets
Children’s and Infant Tylenol
Snack size Ziploc bags.
Please Note: we don’t need children’s vitamins this time. If anyone wants to donate without having to shop, you may place money in an envelope marked “for Haiti” and place in the boxes at the door. Thanks to all for your continued prayers and donations for the Medical Mission.

Habitat for Humanity – Help Needed Saturday, September 13
Help is needed on Saturday, September 13 with the Apostles Build. Habitat is looking for a few people who would be willing to paint the inside trim and doors for the house. This work will be done at the Habitat warehouse at 202 W. Havens to keep the trim pieces away from the dust and weather of the build site. If the trim painting can be done this Saturday, it will speed the installation of the trim pieces in the next couple of weeks. The hours will be the usual 8:30 to 4:00. Click here if you want to sign-up for this project. Thanks again for all you are doing on the Apostles Build.
