The Study Group with Father Tim is entitled “Radical Hospitality – Loving Others the Way God Loves Us”. The first session will be on Thursday, September 21 at 7pm in the church lounge. The October dates are the 12th and 26th, both at 7pm. These dates and times are a trial to see how many may be able to attend and can be reconsidered in the future. Hope you can join us!
UNITED THANK OFFERING
September 17 will be a busy day as we return to our beautiful Sanctuary once again. It will also be the first of two Ingathering Sundays for UTO. Please have your boxes ready or envelopes to share your many blessings with others who need a helping hand. We will continue the Ingathering on September 24 in preparation for our UTO presentation at the annual Diocesan Convention to be held in Carbondale on September 29 and 30. Thank you for sharing your gifts, even small change makes a huge difference. And be sure to mark your boxes or envelopes with your envelope number so you can be given credit with your quarterly statement. Thank you!
LAY EUCHARISTIC MINISTRY
Regular visits to those who receive Communion from our Lay Eucharistic Ministers will resume on September 17. We will return to the Sanctuary that day and visits will continue through December. If you are unable to attend church and would like to receive a home visit, please contact the office or Kathy Burda.
BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS
On Sunday, October 1, Father Tim will be blessing the animals during our regular 9am Eucharistic service. So be sure to bring whatever menagerie you have which are an important part of your lives and have them blessed. They are a blessing to us and this is one way you can show your appreciation to them.
NEW PARISH DIRECTORY
Many thanks to Bob and June Bednar for spending many hours in putting together our new directory. Copies are available at the chapel. If you need one mailed to you, please contact Edna at the office and one will be sent.
Please join us on October 1 after the service and blessing of the animals for a coffee hour in the sanctuary. Fellowship with each other and our furry friends will involve a special celebration! If you would like to contribute any goodies for this, please speak to Cora.
We are pleased to announce that Cody and Courtney Lewars and Joe and Kristen Jusinski are going to serve as leaders for the youth group. A big thank you to Barb Tokarz for all you have done the past years to have meetings and enjoyable times with the youth of the church.
More information will be forthcoming in the next few months.
A group of 5th grade and older students have started to get instruction to be an acolyte. When we get back to Trinity in mid- September, you will notice an additional acolyte with our very loyal current acolytes. The new students will be learning from the current ones and eventually be scheduled on their own. Thanks for the participation in the weekly worship of our Lord.
