Midweek at Midtown – June 1
Totus Tuus – Can I volunteer?
Yes, and thanks for asking!
In order to make this program happen, we need your help! We are looking for:
- Host families: Since the missionaries are traveling from parish to parish, they need a place to stay! We need two families to host our missionaries from Saturday afternoon, July 9 through Saturday morning, July 16. Two missionaries would be staying with you (women in one home, men in the other). We ask that these families provide breakfast for the missionaries each morning. Contact Rachel for more information.
- Parent and High School Volunteers for the Day program
- Meals: We need volunteers to prepare/order lunch and host dinner for our missionaries during the week. Contact Rachel for more information.
Archbishop Lucas will ordain two men to the priesthood this Saturday. We highly recommend attending the ordination at 10am on June 4th at St. Cecilia’s Cathedral. If you are somewhat concerned about the priest shortage and would be open to having your son or grandson become a priest, this is a great celebration to plant a seed of an idea in someone’s heart. You can read more about our two new priests Brett Jamrog and Minh Tran here.
Security at St. Joan of Arc
Funds from the St. Joan of Arc Development dinner several years ago will be used to upgrade our security system at the church and school this summer. In light of too many tragic school shootings in our country, new policies along with the new system will be put into place to ensure the safety of our students and teachers. These policies will affect our adorers’ routine a bit, but shouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience after working out the kinks and getting everyone on the same page. The new procedures are not ready to be published, but we wanted to give you a heads up.
A new funeral page has been created for our website. Suggested enhancements are welcome.
