Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Rosary: The rosary will be prayed after mass, Sunday, August 2nd. We continue to pray for our generous benefactors that first Sunday of every month. Please join us. We may also expose the Blessed Sacrament while we pray the rosary.
Gospel: The feeding of the 5000 is a favorite parable among Catholics. Obviously the parable refers to the Eucharist, where all are nourished by Christ, our host. Believing that the bread and wine actually turn into the Body and Blood of Christ is part of being a Catholic. The answer to believing in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist is being able to distinguish between scientific and religious truth. During the homily this Sunday, the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist will be discussed.
Thank You: Thanks Karen and Vic Belleque for organizing the 50th anniversary potluck for Dan and Dee O’Connell. It was a grand event! Congratulations Dan and Dee.
Mission Talks near Green Bay: There are five Sundays in August. I will be gone the middle three. I will be at Good Shepherd Parish in Chilton, WI the 8th and 9th and at Holy Cross and Saint Anne parishes in Mishicot, WI the 15th and 16th. I also plan to visit my friends Eric and Dawn in Wilmington, NC for a week. I will be raising money for our Holy Rosary Mission.
Finance: Angie just closed out the fiscal year 2008-2009 Sunday. Thank you so much Angie. Also, our 1995 Ford 4X4 F150 is in need of new tires, oil change, tune up, and possibly a U-joint. I purchased new tires and have an appointment Tuesday to take it in to Stellings for repairs.
Have a fantastic week and see you Sunday, if not sooner…Fr. Scott
