Celebrating 90+ years?
CALLING ALL NONAGENARIANS Once again we will be celebrating all members of the parish who have reached the venerable age of 90+ as of 2018. The celebration will be Saturday, July 28 at St. Austin Campus. Please mark your calendars. If you are able to attend, please RSVP to the parish office by Wednesday, July 25. We do not want to miss anyone, so if you know someone we missed last year or who turns 90 this year, please let the office know.
A Year of Transition
Our trustees (Mike Johnson and Gerri Hare), our resident priest (Fr. Paul), our parish director/pastoral care director (Joni Sandlin), our part-time pastoral care minister (Brother Bruce), and our deacon (Dcn. Rich) will be phoning our parish community’s important stakeholders – that is, all our parishioners - to tap into their wisdom during this important year of transition. Calls have begun. It is a slow process, but we will contact everyone. We are available to visit parishioners in their homes, or hospitals. Please notify the office if you are in need of pastoral care and a member of the pastoral care team will contact you to arrange a visit.

Power of Love - Thank you so much!
From Kyle and Nicolle Peltier: Many of you have been so incredibly kind and generous in our time of need for little Kayden, Lillie, Konnor and our entire family. When Kyle and I finally had a moment to take a breath and realize how many people have been sending their love, support, and prayers, donating time to baby sit, cook for us and, give gift cards for our family, we were moved beyond words and overcome with emotion! We wanted you all to know how much we appreciate all of your prayers and support for our children’s healing and continued recovery. It has definitely made a difference in our lives and renewed our sense of hope in the power of love. Thank you so much! Our family is also praying for all of you.
