Do nothing out of selfishness or out of vainglory;
rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves,
each looking out not for his own interests,
but also for those of others.

Phil. 2:3-4 https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/100123.cfm


It is at this exact moment that our faith is most needed! Jesus is waiting for you to spend time with him –make time for Jesus this week in Eucharistic Adoration!

Pax et bonum! (peace & goodness)

Lori Mascia, Parish Pastoral Associate

Director of Faith Formation & Religious Education

The family is the fundamental cell of society,
where we learn to live with others despite our differ­ences and to belong to one another;
it is also the place where parents pass on the faith to their children.”
 Evangellii Gaudium (Joy of the Gospel) #66. Pope Francis.

but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ.

Calling All Disciples!

Catechesis from Greek means to “echo” our faith. Please join us in praying for our catechists and pray for those who God is calling to join us in this ministry. “Jesus did not call volunteers to do a job but he called disciples to answer God’s call of service to God and the Church” (Pope Francis, Symposium on Catechesis, July 2017). Do you feel called to join our faith formation team? If so, please contact Lori Mascia lmascia.stclare@att.net

On August 11th we celebrated our patroness, Saint Clare
