Perseid Meteor Shower Family Campout, Friday, August 11th
This meteor shower is one of the favorites of stargazers in the Northern Hemisphere so bring your tent and gear to stargaze and camp at the parish on Friday, August 11. Starting at 5:30 p.m. we will have food trucks and games on the field until 7:30 p.m. Then a prayer service will bring our focus into the glories of the heavens. During the evening we will also host a family friendly movie including popcorn and beverages, and in the morning we will host a continental breakfast for all campers. Not into camping? Plan to come for the food, prayer, fun and of course stargazing – going home to sleep in your own bed. PLEASE SIGN UP at the Adult Formation Table or below so we know how much food we will need for all attending – and indicate if you will be camping or not.

Anointing of the Sick will take place after the masses on Aug. 26 and 27
This healing sacrament can be received several times in a person’s life. Given when facing a serious illness, surgery or mental health issue, the anointing administered by a priest is meant to encourage, strengthen and console the anointed who can unite their suffering to the suffering of Christ. It is best to be anointed in community, so those anointed know they are not alone and they, in turn, can be an example of faith in times of trial to their fellow believers.
