PSR FINAL SESSION SUNDAY, APRIL 23Sunday, Aproil 23 marks the close of another catechetical year for our Parish School of Religion Program. There are many people to thank for another successful year of formal faith formation for our children in Grades K-8. THANK YOU to our many adult and teen catechists, classroom aides and office assistants for giving so much of their time, talent, and treasure to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the young people of our parish; to the parents who continue to make religious education a priority in the lives of their children; to our students who thirst to learn and to share the message of the gospel in our program, in their families, and in their communities; to Father Kraynak for his support and involvement in our Parish School of Religion Program (especially for the insights he shared each Sunday morning with the parents of our students!); to all of you, our parish community, for praying with and for our families during the catechetical year! Have a great spring and summer. May the coming months bring all of you a little relaxation, refreshment, and rejuvenation. Until we gather again in September, God bless you all!

 -- Mrs. Eileen Edwards

Stewardship Thought
April 23, 2017 - "Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, 'Peace be with you.'"   -- John 20:19

Are you good at making people feel welcome? When you meet someone new, a new neighbor, a new work colleague, a new parishioner, do you make them feel at home? Many of us can probably do a much better job at this. When we make people feel welcome, we make them feel like they are included instead of being excluded. A simple "hello" and a smile goes a long way.
