Stained Glass

Pentecost Sunday - May 30-31, 2009

We look to the scriptures to find the meaning of this great feast – the presence of the Holy Spirit in God’s people and His Church: The Spirit is UNIFYING, “It Holds all things together.” (Wisdom 1:7)  The Spirit is LIFE-GIVING, “The breath of God-Creator over the waters.” (Genesis 1,11)  The Spirit is STRENGTH and INSPIRATION: The apostles made “Bold proclamations as the Spirit prompted them.” (Acts 2:4) Can we celebrate the presence of the Spirit in our personal lives, in our family life, in the life of the parish community?  The answer is “YES” – if we find present there the signs of the Spirit: unity, life and strength.



Today’s second collection today is for St. Victor’s St. Vincent de Paul Society.  Please help our volunteers help the needy of our neighborhood.



CM is looking for those who are interested in sharing their faith, time and talents with our Junior High and High School students.  This is a weekly commitment for Junior High, and twice a month for High School Confirmation students.  Please prayerfully consider this most important ministry (Training is provided.)  For more information, please contact Sharron Hollenbeck or Angela Giampaoli in the Catechetical Ministry Office @ 251-0165.


Happy Birthday and Happy Ordination Anniversary to Father Michael Hendrickson on Tuesday, June 2nd.  We also pray for his safe return to us at the end of next summer, 2010.

The Marian (Medjugorje) Prayer Group meets on Tuesday at 1:00 P.M. in the Chapel.  For more information, please call Clarie @ 258-1736.  

Don’t Forget Dad!

Father’s Day is rapidly approaching – Sunday, June 21st.  Father’s Day Spiritual Bouquet Cards are available on the tables as you leave Church today.  These cards are wonderful for remembering fathers everywhere – living or deceased – on Father’s Day and the remainder of June.  Please place the completed envelope in the collection basket or take it to the parish office by noon on Friday, June 19th.
