Nativity of St. John the Baptist 2018 June 24, 2018

From the Desk of Fr. Mark..

I will make you a light to the nations,

that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth. (Isaiah 49.6)

Our parishes shine the light of Christ for our neighbors and friends.

As we mourn those who are harmed by acts of violence we can offer support, security and hope to those around us. I am convinced that active and vibrant parishes offer alternatives for young people (and adults as well) so that all can develop their giftedness and not be drawn into dangerous lifestyles. As we build up families in faith, we also create safer neighborhoods.

Thanks for your support of Prayer and Action. Last week our second group of nearly 40 teens worked and prayed in our

neighborhoods. We have more groups to come so if you need some work done, call the office. Also, if you happen to encounter one of these young people be sure to give them a hearty welcome!

Our fiscal year ends in one week on June 30 and we still have some unpaid bills from this past year. If you are a contributor who gives your offering a few times a year, NOW would be a wonderful time so we can meet our budget for this year. Thank you for your year-round generosity that sustains the parish!

Del Escritorio del Padre Mark,

Te voy a convertir en luz de las naciones,

para que mi salvación llegue hasta los últimos rincones de la tierra” (Isaías 49.6).

Nuestras parroquias brillan la luz de Cristo para nuestros vecinos y amigos. Mientras lloramos a aquellos que son perjudicados por actos de violencia, podemos ofrecer apoyo, seguridad y esperanza a quienes nos rodean. Estoy convencido de que las parroquias activas y

dinámicas ofrecen alternativas para los jóvenes (y también para los adultos) para que todos puedan desarrollar su talento y no verse arrastrados a estilos de vida peligrosos. A medida que construimos familias con fe, también creamos vecindarios más seguros.

Gracias por su apoyo a Prayer and Action. La semana pasada nuestro segundo grupo de casi 40 jóvenes trabajo y oró en nuestros vecindarios. Tenemos más grupos por venir, así que, si necesita algún trabajo, llame a la oficina. También, si te encuentras con uno de estos jóvenes, ¡asegúrate de darles una calurosa bienvenida!

Nuestro año fiscal termina en una semana el 30 de junio y todavía tenemos algunas facturas sin pagar desde el año pasado. Si usted es un colaborador que ofrece su oferta varias veces al año, AHORA sería un momento maravilloso para que podamos cumplir con nuestro presupuesto para este año. ¡Gracias por su generosidad durante todo el año que sostiene a la parroquia!

Marriage Minute June 24, 2018 The Cross of Infertility

This weekend we celebrate the birth of John the Baptist, a miraculous child born to parents who

bore the heavy burden of infertility for many years. God answered Elizabeth and Zachariah’s

prayers, but there are likely couples you know who are still waiting for their answer. Here is how

you can help:

• Don’t give advice unless asked.

• Acknowledge their suffering and offer to lis- ten.

• Be sensitive regarding baby or child-related events.

• Continue to pray and let your friend know you are praying.

If you are in the midst of this struggle yourself, we know there are no easy answers. We join you in prayer with this weekend’s psalm: For you are my hope, O LORD; my trust, O LORD, from my


Keeler Women’s Center, a ministry of the Bene- dictine Sisters is located at 2220 Central Ave., KCK. All programs and services are free. Dona- tions are welcome.
