In Your Kindness
Please pray for the sick of our parish: Jean Eidem, Jane Freund, JoAnn DeMatteo, Glen Kroll, Agnes Manger, Don Zenner, Joe Sullivan, Bob Wirth, Bill Schwartz and daughter Jenny. In your charity, remember the soul of Joe Theis, husband of Larayne Theis and former parishioner, who died last week. May his soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed rest in peace.
PLEASE NOTE : Eucharistic Adoration
WEEKLY FRIDAY ADORATION is following the 8:00 AM Mass until 3:00 PM. Contact the Parish Office if you are interested in committing to sit before the Blessed Sacrament for an hour each week.
ATTENTION ADULT CHOIR MEMBERS
ADULT CHOIR: The start of the musical season is upon us! Our rehearsals for the Adult Choir are now on Wednesdays, at our St. Austin campus from 6:30-8:00pm. If you are interested in joining the Adult Choir, please contact our Director of Worship, Christina Maas, at the parish office. No audition is required. The Adult Choir typically sings on Sunday mornings twice a month, with the Saturday Schola (a smaller subset of the Adult Choir) that sings at the 4:30pm vigil Mass. We also have our Praise Ensemble, featuring more contemporary praise & worship style music. This group rehearses once a month and sings 1-2 times per month on Sundays, at 6:30PM at St. Austins. As always, we welcome instrumentalists and cantors (songleaders) in the ensemble. If you love to sing or play, consider offering your talents to one of these vibrant church groups!
