CATHOLIC CONVERSATIONS  

"Catholic Conversations" is a series that aims for informative, lively, and interactive talk on subjects related to faith.  Join us on Wednesday evening, July 8, at 7:30 in the Pastoral Center as we welcome our own Jamie Dillon, parish director of Catholic youth ministry and religious education.  Our topic is "Nurturing Your Teen's Faith."  If there are teens in your life, take advantage of this opportunity to tap into Jamie's wide experience, and to share your own experience and support with others.  There is no registration or fee for this event.

 

BAPTISM PREPARATION

  A preparation session for the parents of children who are scheduled to be baptized in the parish will be held on Monday evening, June 29, at 7:30 in the parish office.  The session will provide parents an opportunity to reflect upon the meaning of the sacrament and to walk through the ceremony itself.  Baptisms are normally celebrated on the second and fourth Sundays of each month.   Please make arrangements for the baptism itself with the parish secretary at least two weeks before your desired date.  If you plan to attend the June 29 session, please let Andy Bechman know (see the staff contact information in this bulletin).


RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Don't forget to register your middle schooler for Camp Helping Hand July 15-17 9:00-2:00.  We will be working with habitat for humanity.

 

Today our group leaves for our mission trip to Appalachia. We will return next Saturday with a special youth mass at 5:00 pm.  Please keep us in your prayers this week and consider joining us for mass on Saturday


SPIRITUAL SUPPORTS FOR THE AGING PROCESS

             This one day program is presented by Gateway Hospice and St. Bernadette Parish on Wednesday, July 15th at St. Bernadette Parish in Monroeville.  The topic for the 1pm session is "Opportunity for Seniors to reflect on how God works through the different seasons of their lives."     During the 7pm session Fr. Scott will offer suggestions on how to spiritually accompany senior parents, spouses, family and friends.  The programs are free to attend and all are welcome.
