THE HOLY FATHER'S PRAYER INTENTIONS FOR 2015
Each month, Pope Francis announces his special prayer intentions--particular things that he wishes all Catholics to pray for that month.
Pope Francis offers two intentions every month, one Universal, and one For Evangelization.
Universal: Respect for Refugees
That immigrants and refugees may find welcome and respect in the countries to which they come.
For Evangelization: Jesus Encounter to Youth
That the personal encounter with Jesus may arouse in many young people the desire to offer their own lives in priesthood or consecrated life.

YOUTH MINISTRY SAYS A FAREWELL UNTIL AUGUST
Maria Leija and Lisa D’Souza have been leading the youth ministries for this past year. And, David and Maria Leija were the catalysts to begin a youth ministry in our parish four years ago. Both are wonderful leaders and disciples! God has been calling them to give of their gifts and treasures to other ministries, so after this year, Maria will be supporting youth ministry in prayers, but not presence. WE THANK YOU, MARIA for a wonderful year of laughs, faith sharing, formation, and pizza!

OPPORTUNITY TO SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS
"Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature." (Mk 16:15)
Would you be willing to give a couple of hours of your time monthly in sharing your Catholic Faith with others? We are forming a team that will be trained in facilitating once a month gatherings which will welcome people who have initial questions about Christianity. The 1 hour gatherings will include a light lunch and fellowship, video talk and group discussion. The team will train in the fall to begin in January of 2016. If you would like more information on this opportunity to pick up the cross for Jesus....please contact Maria Leija at email@example.com
