Parish Picnic, Sunday, August 28
PSR Dates Set for School Year, Begins September 11
RCIA Begins September 21
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a program of education and formation for persons who want to learn about the Catholic faith. It is for those who are:
- Not Catholic at this time but are thinking about it,
- Catholics who have not studied our faith since their childhood or youth,
- Catholics seeking deeper meaning in our faith,
- Catholics who want a closer relationship with God.
The heart of the program is weekly sessions beginning on September 21. We start with answering everyone’s questions. The final decision of whether to become Catholic need not be made until next March. Every year this program is filled with enthusiasm and happiness for those who participate. Every year the group soon becomes a community and new friendships are forged. Every year there is an aura of regret when it is over. Please ask anyone who may be interested to contact the pastor or one of the deacons, or ask their permission for us to contact them.
50th Anniversary of Ordination, Thank You
Congratulations First Communicants

Jubilee Year of Mercy
How can we show others the mercy of God? We say that God is compassionate, but we ignore the poor. We say that God loves us and has mercy on us, but we hold grudges against our friends. Our actions need to authentically reflect God's mercy. Click here for the Jubilee of Mercy calendar for the Diocese of Jefferson City and to explore ideas on the different ways that you can live out this mercy every day.
Resources for Catholic Men
More than ever, the Church needs men. Sadly, many Catholic men have believed the lie that being holy isn’t manly, and that the faith is boring. They leave religion to women and children and simply tune out. But holiness is for men. There is nothing more difficult, rewarding, or manly than becoming a saint. These links provide resources for Catholic men.

Sunday Mass Transportation Needs
Do you know someone who would come to Sunday Mass if they had transportation? There are a number of people who do not have transportation or who have a disability that prevents them from driving. Please help us by contacting the Parish office with the names and phone numbers of any persons you know in this situation who we may be able to provide transportation for.
