Prison Ministry

An informational meeting will be held regarding tri-parish ministry to Catholics at the WSP on December 6, 12:00, at the St. Patrick’s John of the Cross Room. All volunteers currently involved in this ministry are requested to attend. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the ministry is also invited to attend. You may contact Dave Opbroek at 240-7484 if you have any questions.

Angel Giving Tree

Helpline assists indigent and working-poor individuals and families on an emergency basis. You can help by taking a tag from the Giving Tree and returning the item unwrapped next Sunday. If you are unable to shop or if it is more convenient for you, you may make a check payable to your parish marked for Helpline and it will be put to good use. Thank you for bringing Christmas cheer to those in need!

Thank You, Fr. Brian

Thanks to Fr. Brian for his enlightening presentations on the Joy of the Gospel: and to the Catholic Daughters, Assumption Women’s Group and the Monday night prayer group for providing refreshments: also to the Tri-Parish Adult Formation team for hosting this event.

Stewardship Reflection: November 23

When the Son of Man comes in glory, may we be among those who have fed the hungry, welcomed the stranger, and clothed the naked. For Jesus tells us clearly that it is those who have demonstrated good stewardship by sharing their gifts with the less fortunate who will receive God’s blessing and inherit the kingdom.
