Letters From A Pastor to His People April 28, 2019
Saint Thomas was called Didymus, which means the twin. Someone asked me about this recently. Thomas did not have actually have a twin sibling. He was called the twin because of his split personalities, if you will. He is a faithful apostle, yet he doubts.
When Jesus decides to see Lazarus, though it will mean traveling into the lions den, Thomas says, let us go that we may die with him (John 1116). When Jesus says at the Last Supper that he is going to the Father, Thomas asks what the way is, to which our Lord responds I am the way, the truth and the life (John 1415). When Jesus comes back to life, Thomas resists Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe (John 2025).
On the fourth Sunday of every month during the 930am Mass we offer Sunday School for children age 36. Parents are invited to enter the school through the Ahearn Activity Center (gym) doors before going to 930 Mass.
Our helpers will guide you to room 12, where you may drop off and retrieve your child immediately following Mass. We spread the Gospel message to our youngest worshipers in a comprehensive way through ageappropriate stories, discussion, and handson activities.
There is no cost for our Sunday School program, and all children of preschool to kindergarten age (36) are welcome, parishioners and nonparishioners alike. Please join us this Sunday, April 28th at 930am
Our Teen Ministry for current high school students meets for Mass at 500pm on the second Sunday of every month and then heads to the Ahearn Activity Center for prayerful conversation, pizza provided by Holts, and open gym. Our next meeting is Sunday, May 5 at 5pm. This is a great chance to reconnect with those SJS classmates you havent seen in a while or meet new friends. Bring friends and spread the word!
Please join us on Divine Mercy Sunday April 28 in Church for the Divine Mercy Sunday Prayer Service from 300pm to 400pm. During this service we will sing and pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
If youve been thinking about entrusting yourself to Mary for the first time or if youre simply looking to deepen and renew your devotion to her, please join us for daily prayers and readings from Father James†Marian Consecration booklet titled, In the Shade of Holiness.
As Father James explains in his book, What precisely does it mean to consecrate? What exactly happens when someone or something is consecrated? We speak of consecrating ourselves because we want to set ourselves apart. We want our lives, and every part of our lives, to produce something greater, just like the Gettysburg cemetery produced holiness for people and society, as well as a patriotic awareness. We are fused with Gods grace, and goodness is produced through usWhen a person is consecrated to Maryor to put it more accurately, to Jesus through Marythe persons whole life becomes a source of grace. Just as we described, every moment and aspect of his or her life is an entry point for holinessBy uniting ourselves to Mary, we are turning over everything explicitly to her, and she will then turn everything over to God. We can live our lives more relaxed, for Mary will ensure everything is an open channel for Gods grace.
We hope you will consider doing this beautiful spiritual exercise, even if you have done this in years past. Please join us May 5th at 330430pm in the church for our last 3Cs in Christ session as Father James presents on Marian Consecration. Please join us for an optional pubic consecration service with Father James on May 31st. There will be one morning and evening session. All are welcome.
Each week on Tuesday evening we offer a onehour talk about a different theological topic. The presenter is our pastor, Father James Wallace, and we gather in the chapel, located in the ministry center building.
We hope youll find the talks interesting and helpful in your faith formation. The talks are not interdependent of each other, so feel free to join us when you can. All are welcome!
Please join us May 7th @ 700pm for a presentation on Mary.
