Happy 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time and a restful labor day weekend for you all. Some of you may know, but in case you do not, this Sunday is the “
The World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.”
As a community, let us take a moment and be grateful for the beauty of creation and pause and thank God for blessing us with such a great gift!
As we enter this school year, I am excited to announce some great changes to the youth ministry program in our parish cluster communities. With lots of prayer and discernment, we have decided to implement the Confirmation program called “
Chosen: A Journey towards Confirmation”.
To find out more information on this program, please visit the YouTube link found below for a great introduction video into the benefits of Chosen offered to you by other Youth Ministers and their students from across the country.
Secondly, I am excited to announce that September 14th is the official kick-off of our new High School Series Year 1 theme called: “Rooted”. This program is still very early in the planning phase and I also wanted to give our high school students the opportunity to create this program for themselves. So, on September 14th, if your child is in 9th-12th grade, they are invited to come to the brainstorming night to further create the vision for this program. What we know now is it will consist of Lifelines frequently on the first Saturday of each month starting in October and going through May. Then on the 3rd Saturdays, we will be focused on a 4-pillar formational plan (Human, Spiritual, Intellectual, and Pastoral) to broaden ourselves in the service of our fellow neighbor and to grow as true disciples of Christ! These events for the most part will be free, unless the event planned for a given month is at a cost. The Lifeline on November 2nd is featuring
Fr. Mike Schmitz.
I have 15 tickets to pass out on a first-come-first serve basis, so if you are interested in coming, please contact Cody Klamm to reserve your spot. More information on transportation will come as we get closer to this event. In the meantime, please stay tuned for more details on the high school series program. Thank you.
Lastly, if you are interested in keeping up to date and being properly communicated with, please submit your email to me (Cody Klamm) for further information, details, etc. on upcoming events held for youth ministry. If you are willing to also provide your cell phone, I can get you set up with the communication app I will be using throughout the year called
It is a quick and simple way to communicate about cancellations, location & time changes, etc. If this is something you do not want to be connected to, please just provide your email to me. Thank you.
I am overwhelmed with excitement and joy for this upcoming school year and I pray, with time, you all will be too. I pray that if our paths have not crossed, that the Lord will provide that opportunity. God bless you all this school year, may it be a year of growth and love! I will be praying for you all as the year progresses, and I ask that you pray for me and the rest of the parish staff as well! Sincerely,
