TRAVELING VOCATIONS CHALICE The Vocation Ministry team is excited to introduce the Traveling Chalice Program to help encourage prayers for vocations. This is a wonderful opportunity for all parishioners! Individuals or families can sign up to take home a special chalice blessed by Father Kraynak, and every day for one week take a few minutes to pray for vocations using special vocation prayer cards. The chalice is to be returned prior to the next weekend's Mass. It will be displayed in the church and then presented at the end of Mass to the individual or family who is taking it home that week. We invite you to prayerfully consider participating in the program, let's keep the chalice actively traveling throughout the parish community in support of vocations. Sign up is the sacristy for your week with the traveling chalice!

Clean Up for Lent There is a great need for cleaning, paper, and hygiene products for those less fortunate in Portage County. Weekends of March 7-8 and 14-15 , please bring items to Mass and place in Tobin Hall. For a list of the most need items, see the Bulletin.

Stewardship Thought
February 23, 2020 - "But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…" (Matthew 5:44)

Love your enemies, easier said than done, no doubt. But, remember, the foundation of stewardship is prayer. When we are in close communication with God, it opens our heart and it turns our attention away from "me" and moves it towards God and others. It allows us to have a little more empathy for "our enemy." When we pray for others, even "our enemies," maybe it softens their hearts as well.
