PARISH TOWN HALL MEETING with Sr. Maureen Harris, Fr. Joe Rogliano, our vicar and Ron Thaler, has been set up for Wednesday, July 25th at 7PM at St. Lawrence. The purpose of the meeting will be to review the accomplishments of our parish ministries, desires of our own parish future, discuss the vitality of each parish of the CCCB and suggest possibilities for future cooperation to ensure the health of our Central City Parish Life. Come and be part of the conversation.
THIS YEAR’S MISSION COOPERATIVE GUEST is Sr. Leanne Kerschner of the Sisters of St. Francis’ missioners. The sisters serve those people who are poor, with foreign missions in Mexico and home missions in Appalachia. In remote areas of Mexico they work to build faith communities where there are no priests for regular Sunday Masses. Sisters also give children living in extreme poverty the opportunity to obtain an education plus emergency needs of food and medicine. Appalachian ministries include faith development and pastoral care, adult literacy, and emergency outreach of food, clothing, and shelter for the people who are poor. Please help make a difference in the lives of people suffering from poverty with your prayer and financial support in the second collection that weekend.
