To share the message of Christ with every person in Edmonson County.
Homework: Pray 10 minutes a day every day this week.
One of the signs of a Dynamic Catholic is that of a continuous learner. I want to encourage everyone to read 5 pages a day of our book entitled, “The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic.”
Every year the diocese asks each parish to count the number of people who attend Mass on the four Sundays of September. Below is the average attendance at St. John’s Parish for the last four years.
We will begin the preparation for Christmas Advent every Sunday from now until Christmas, a half-hour before mass at 8:30 AM.
Additionally, for those who wish to join the choir practice on a regular basis, practice begins every Sunday at 8 AM if you wish to raise your voices and lift your hearts with song during the mass every Sunday. All are welcome.
Imagine if everyone in our
parish did these four things:
1. Spent 10 minutes each day in prayerful
conversation with God.
2. Read 5 pages of a great Catholic book each
3. Gave 1% more of their income to support the mission of our parish than last year.
4. Did 1 thing each week to share the genius of
Catholicism with someone else.
Then we could say that we are a Dynamic Catholic Parish.
Congratulations to Dick Dyche who was chosen to receive from the diocese this year’s Sophia Award for his outstanding serve in our parish.
