Change in location
Faith Luthern Church 5414 East Lake Road
Because of concerns about COVID, we were asked to move the location of our annual outdoor Mass. Faith Lutherin has graciously offered to host us. Bring a chair and bug spray Faith Lutherin has benches set up for their services, but there may not be enough for all of us to socially distance.
NO Fellowship to Follow due to COVID restrictions.
In light of recent changes to our COVID-19 status and newly announced state-wide restrictions, the parish pictorial directory project is being postponed until next summer. Any family who already scheduled their photo session will receive a phone call notifying them of this change. Thank you to all who offered to assist with this project.

Join us for a Scripture Study on Mary beginning Thursday, July 23 at 11:00 AM. August 15 is the feast of the Assumption of Mary, so this is a perfect time to reflect on her witness and her role in the Church through the centuries.
All are welcome to join our virtual study beginning Thursday, July 23. Prior to each gathering, participants are asked to view one of the lectures by Dr. Brant Pitre on formed.org, https://watch.formed.org/lectio-mary-with-dr-brant-pitre.
When we gather in our Zoom room, we will discuss what we learned. To get the Zoom link each week, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
