Parish Pool Party, Thursday, July 28

Come join us for some food, fun and swimming! We have reserved the Eldon Aquatic Center Thursday, July 28 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. All PSR kids grade PreK-12th grade and younger and all Totus Tuus kids, along with their families, are encouraged to attend! We know some parishioners may have grandchildren visiting, they are welcome too! We also will be celebrating Msgr. Lammers’ 83rd birthday! This is a great time to catch up with all your friends and make new ones as well. We will provide hot dogs, chips, nachos, drinks and Monsignor’s birthday cake, so there is no need for you to fix dinner! To help us prepare an accurate amount of food, please RSVP (text/call) to Carmen Burton at 573-434-1168 or email sheartyouth@yahoo.com.

Confirmed in the Holy Spirit

On March 26 at the Easter Vigil, the Church welcomed Delphia Suelynn Trapino Vladeff (Sacrament of Confirmation) and her adult son Salvatore Paul Vladeff (Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist). On April 6 Bishop John Gaydos confirmed these beautiful in the Catholic faith. Pictured at right are Sacred Heart confirmation teacher Christie Jung with Kimberly Burton, Anne Jarrett, Holly Enowski, Clare Colonius, Harley Enowski, Darian Mergelkamp, Brock Henry and Hunter Enowski (not pictured Dakota Wilmes). Congratulations to all!

Reconciliation Resources

Click here for a An Examination of Conscience for Children and Adults Using the 10 Commandments. Additionally, the site The Light is On for You provides excellent resources for preparing for the Sacrament, including Examinations of Conscience for all ages. Another terrific site, brought to you by Catholics Come Home is called Good Confession with a wealth of information and resources. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered every Saturday from 4-5pm (in the Chapel Confessional in the front of Church) and by appointment (contact the Parish office). 

Ice Cream Social Confirmation Service Raises Funds

Thanks to everyone who supported the Confirmation Class service project - An Ice Cream Social - that benefited the Eldon Food Pantry. A total of 110 cans of food and $380 ($125 in donations and $225 from the silent auction of bowls) will be given to the Food Pantry. Let us continue to pray for these candidates as they journey toward the Sacrament of Confirmation on Wednesday, April 6.

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.
