Children’s liturgy needs your help!
Did you ever wonder where all the children go during the UCC’s morning Mass? Here’s your chance to find out! Volunteers are needed to help lead Children’s Liturgy sessions at the 9:00 am Mass (10:30 am in the summer). If you enjoy working with children, this is a great opportunity to help bring the Sunday liturgy to them at a level they can understand. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Jesus’ feeding of the 5,000 was a preview of the Eucharist. We learn later that Jesus is the Bread of Life. What activities could you add to your spiritual life to increase your spiritual nourishment?
Assumption of Mary
Friday, August 15
Though the UCC is ordinarily closed on Fridays through the summer, we will open for Mass at 12:05 pm on Friday, August 15, to celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Mass will be held in the Holy Spirit Chapel. There will also be Mass at 8 am at St. Austin Parish.
H u co d UC!
Recently the UCC’s air conditioning equipment has suffered several major breakdowns and is currently running at a limited capacity. Rather than spending additional funds on expensive new parts for our antiquated chiller, the UCC is beginning a fundraising drive to replace our outdated equipment with a new, efficient chiller that will reward us with energy savings each month. To replace the chiller, the UCC needs to raise $90,000. Thanks to the blessed generosity of one of our community members, we already have $45,000 pledged for the new chiller! To continue to provide for our growing campus ministry, it is critical that we raise the additional $45,000 as soon as possible. To contribute, send a check to the UCC with “HVAC” written on the memo line or give online at: utcatholic.org/give/hvac! Thank you!
