Welcome . . to Our Lady of Lourdes † St. Anne . . .
Assumption of Mary
Tuesday of this week is the Holy Day of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. I was part of a brainstorming creativity group that called it the Feast of the first Woman in Space. We smile, but know we cannot totally comprehend this mystery we celebrate.
We know that God worked through this woman in a unique and powerful way and through many women and men throughout history. And we believe that her goodness and whatever makes her Mary continues to live on in a fullness of life with God. She gave her body and soul to bring God into this world as we are all called to do in our own ways. - Nancy
Writing to the Eldery
School’s out for the Summer, which means our Seton students won’t be writng cards and letters to our home-bound elderly for the next few months. To fill the gap, contact either church office and let us know you would like the name and address of an elder so you can send your summer wishes. Jeriann McEvoy, Pastoral Minister, will get back to you with the information. This could be a great family project (hand drawn pictures from children are always appreciated), or a way for anyone to brighten the day for someone old enough to remember when post cards and letters were the only way to stay connected! Thank you for considering this ministry.
St. Anne Church’s Next-To-New-Sale Is right around the corner!
We hope you will be setting aside anything you can donate to our sale (exceptions: analog TVs, clothing, books, magazines, car seats, cribs, bowling balls, computers, exercise equipment, skis, shoes, entertainment centers, tires, sofas…) The volunteer Sign-up Sheets are now in the Atrium. We are starting to set up Saturday, August 12, and drop off starts on Tuesday, August 15 through the 23rd, 8am-6pm.
You always make it such a success. Please save the dates and plan on coming, or helping before or during the sale at St. Anne, -many hands make light work!
• Like to decorate? Lourdes needs a few folks to decorate for various seasons or to bring flowers in for weekend Mass during summer months.
• Liturgy Committee is seeking folks who appreciate Mass and celebrations of various church seasons. They meet once monthly to ensure quality Liturgies. See Fr. Tyman or Nancy soon.
• Lourdes needs folks to bring flowers for the Altar on weekends and/or help clean church on a rotating basis.
• Lourdes still needs folks to adopt a flower pot - plant flowers and tend during summer months out side church.
