We are also looking for people to provide lunch for the teens each day while we are painting. Any contribution will help our goal. Contact Amanda to donate.

We are asking for your help with our Funeral Dinner Ministry. Many of our faithful volunteers are unable to continue due to changes in their work situations or health issues.

Please consider stepping forward to lead or co -lead a funeral dinner team. TRAINING IS PROVIDED. Please fill out the bottom part of this form and either return it to the office, mail it or put it in the collection basket. Call the office (362-2611) if you have any questions.

How Does God Change Us? Through the Mass-Eucharist!
Catechism of the Catholic Church 1074 "The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; it is also the font from which all her power flows." It is therefore the privileged place for catechizing the People of God. "Catechesis is intrinsically linked with the whole of liturgical and sacramental activity, for it is in the sacraments, especially in the Eucharist, that Christ Jesus works in fullness for the transformation of men." If we want to improve how we love God, family, and neighbors, Let’s go to Mass and receive the Eucharist as much as possible!
PLEASE REMEMBER OUR PARISHIONERS, FRIENDS, RELATIVES AND THEIR FAMILIES WHO ARE IN NEED OF OUR PRAYERS, ESPECIALLY: Manuel Moreno, Elizabeth Gonzáles Montes Jerry Richardson, Destany Voice, Charity Voice, Jody Triplett , Judy Sheldon Marlene Cummings CALL THE OFFICE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD SOMEONE TO THE PRAYER LIST. Although we recognize that many people need prayers for a longer period of time, it is our policy to run names in the bulletin for three weeks due to space limitations.

Loaves & Fish Soup Kitchen & Pantry
The Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen and Pantry needs a volunteer for Mondays and another for Tuesdays once a week. The volunteer will need to go to Smiths and Albertsons at 9:00 am to pick up donated bread, pastry and produce for the kitchen and pantry. Pantry volunteers will put the donated food on shelves. The volunteers would use their own vehicles preferably a truck or suv. One to one and a half hours per week maximum. Please call the Parish office 362-2611 if interested.

Holy Spirit Parish, Living and Giving in Christ - Diocesan Bishop’s Appeal 2013

A reminder about our version of Stewardship, our return to God from whom the gift of all our Time, all our Talent and all our Treasure come, is also in order. Our version of Stewardship is called Ownership. All things belong to God. Not being a tyrant or slave owner, God calls us into partnership as co-owners. God supports us in every second of Time we are alive, in the generous gifts of Talents by which we demonstrate how we are made in the image and likeness of God and through Time and Talent we assemble wealth or “Treasure” as we use our God-given Time to express our God-given Talent. As co-owners, the first hour of our Time is dedicated to worship God on Sunday. By attending Mass we get way better of the trade. God gets at least a minimum of 1 hour of our week in worship, we get the other 167 hours of the week. We give God the first hour of our Talent at work; by giving an hour wage to our Church we get the reward of what our Talent achieves during the remaining hours of our work week. The formula works for salaried people, retired people and every non-hourly worker, too. Establish your gross annual income from all sources. Divide your gross annual income from all sources by 52, the number of weeks per year. Then divide that figure by 40 to determine what your weekly gift is to give to God. If all of us were doing at least one hour of putting God first and one hour gift of Treasure, the effects of the recession in parish life would lose their force. Thank you for generosity of Time, Talent and Treasure.

ELEVATOR FUND Thank you for the contributions -- $27,970.27 we have received for the elevator fund. Our fund is growing, and will provide easy access to SCM Church for our handicapped parishioners, and for those who have difficulty climbing stairs. THANK YOU!
The anointing of the sick is a sacrament for the sick, with a prayer for healing, not a sacrament for those close to death (that's viaticum-Communion on the way. If you're chronically ill, anticipating surgery, or in a hospital or nursing home, ask your parish priest for this healing grace.

SAT 03

SUN 04

The next Mass with Anointing of the Sick will be on Saturday, August 3rd, 9:00 am at OLS Church. This provides families a wonderful opportunity to bring an aged or infirm family member for anointing, and to join them in prayer. What a wonderful way to fulfill the 4th Commandment of “Honor thy father & mother and extended family.”
