COLUMBA CATHOLIC CHURCH May 20, 2012 Seventh Sunday of Easter


Seniors’ Club
Thursday, May 24th, 10:30 a.m.

Pastor’s Corner ~
Jesus ascended into heaven. He disappeared before our eyes but He never leaves us. He is present through His Holy Spirit, through the Sacraments, through the Priest, through God’s Word in the Bible, through the worshipping community which is the Church and through His creation in our world. His presence is manifested in many ways. He will never leave us as He promised, “I will be with you until the end of the ages” (Mt. 28:20).

Program: Hula Dancers Lunch: Orange chicken, rice, vegetables—$5.00

Join the Experience of a Lifetime
The Knights of Columbus are having their Annual Membership Drive this weekend. Knights will be available after Mass to answer questions and to provide information. We urge the men of our Parish to take a few minutes to learn more about the world’s largest Catholic Family Fraternal Organization.

Congratulations to the children of our parish who have received First Communion on May 12, 2012. Today also many young people in the parish will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. We pray that the sacraments they receive will make them grow in their spiritual life and make them Christ-like.

Please do not water the plants in the church. We have a regular crew of helpers who tend the plants. They have found several plants with pots full of water. The standing water is a breeding ground for gnats. Please help us keep our plants healthy!
