FROM OUR PASTOR

Love and Service

05-19-2019Father Prince Raja

During the Easter season the liturgy brings us closer to the resurrected Jesus and makes us realize that we are always united to him and he is united to us. He gives the invitation to all of us to enter into the true discipleship but in the context of the community. On his mission he sends his disciples two by two and teaches them to proclaim his kingdom as a community.

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

New Leader of Prayer Class Begins in June

Applications are open for a new class of men and women who wish to serve as Leaders of Prayer for the Diocese of La Crosse. This is a three-part course of study by which lay persons are prepared and commissioned to serve their parishes by bringing Holy Communion to the sick, conducting a Liturgy of the Word with Communion on weekdays when a priest is unavailable, and leading parishioners in prayer at times of illness or death. In nursing homes or healthcare facilities, when no priest is available, they may also conduct a Sunday Celebration in the Absence of a Priest. Completion of the Lay Formation Institute is a prerequisitefor acceptance into the Leader of Prayer program, and candidates must be sponsored by their pastors.

For complete information,visit www.diolc.org/ministries and click on “Leader of Prayer.”

A memory café is a gathering where people can join together to share thoughts and experiences. They are attended by persons who are concerned about memory loss, those who are interested in life-long learning, and those who simply enjoy engaging in brain-healthy activities.

They meet every second Thursday of each month at Wings over Alma from 10:00-11:30am. More information posted in back of Church.
