    UP-COMING EVENTS Mother’s Day Corsages

    Corsages will be available for purchase Mother’s Day weekend, May 12 & May 13 after each Mass in the Plaza. Cost: $10 each Cash/check

    Baby Bottles

    Our annual Change 4 Babies baby bottle drive begins Mother’s Day weekend, May 12-13.

    Baby Bottles will be located in the Narthex for pick up by parishioners wishing to participate.

    Fill the empty bottle with change and bring back when you’re finished. Money is raised for the Pregnancy Care Center to help women and men in our community experiencing an unexpected pregnancy. Baby bottles can be dropped off at Mass or in the Parish Office anytime by Father’s Day weekend.


    Will be in the Holy Spirit parking lot after each Mass next weekend. Bring an used or lightly used clothing, furniture, baby items or non-perishable foods to help community members in need. Thank you.

  • We need your help! We are seeking donations for our silent auction and our dessert auction for our fundraiser dinner on May 18. Silent auction items could include gift cards, gift certificates, themed gift baskets, etc. Dessert items should be non-refrigerated. If you have questions, contact Martha or Francie in the Youth Ministry office at 434-7708. To attend the dinner, you may purchase tickets after Masses or in the office. Thank you for your support! A week-long retreat could be given on today’s Gospel passage because so much is contained within it. Perhaps, we could each take that on this week: Pray with a different verse from today’s Gospel every day this week and enter into deep, daily encounters with Jesus. Monday: “That night they caught nothing.” We can’t do anything in the dark. If we’re in spiritual darkness — not praying, not repentant, not going to Mass — we will catch nothing. We need to be in the light of Christ. Tuesday: “Cast the net over the right side of the boat.” In prayer, don’t give up so easily. Don’t leave and move on to the next thing. Stay where you are and keep fishing. Wednesday: “He tucked in his garment, for he was lightly clad, and jumped into the sea.” To encounter Christ, be lightly clad. Don’t overwhelm your life with a ton of things God isn’t actually asking you to do. What natural gifts has He given you? What are you passionate about? Let go of everything else and jump into the sea. Dive in, head first. Thursday: “Simon Peter went over and dragged the net ashore full of one hundred fifty-three large fish.” Some scholars believe this represents the 153 known nations of the world at the time John wrote the Gospel.
