WEEKLY READING  Presented by: Celeste Onka

EIGHTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Someone in the crowd said to Jesus,
“Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me.”
He replied to him,
“Friend, who appointed me as your judge and arbitrator?”
Then he said to the crowd,
“Take care to guard against all greed,
for though one may be rich,
one’s life does not consist of possessions.”

17TH SUNDAY JULY 24, 2016

SUMMER MASS SCHEDULE: THERE WILL BE NO 8:30AM MASS AT SACRED HEART AND NO 10:30AM MASS AT CHRIST THE KING. REMEMBER THIS IS ONLY FOR THE MONTHS OF JULY & AUGUST.

The saint’s memorial and feast days for this week are:

  Monday – James
  Tuesday – Joachim & Anne
  Friday – Martha
  Saturday – Peter Chrysologus

Everyone is invited as we celebrate Fr. Slawek and wish him well under the tent at 12:30 AM.
 
Our 48th Annual Summer Festival will begin on Tuesday.  Please pray for good weather.  Everyone must report to the office on the days you signed up to work. Sometimes it is necessary for us to schedule you at a different job so it is crucial that you check in the office first.  If there is not a name tag for you, you are not scheduled and must check in at the office.  ALL CHILDREN WHO WHOULD LIKE TO WORK MUST BE REGISTERED ON-LINE OR AT THE OFFICE IN ADVANCE.  THERE WAS A GLITCH IN THE ON-LINE REGISTRATION, BUT IT’S STRAIGHTENED OUT.  PLEASE GO ON-LINE AND REGISTER TO HELP.

We still need help…we need about 10 people for stuffed cabbage making and 10 people for pierogi-buttering everyday from 9 AM -Noon.  We also need a couple of able-bodied men to run the food from the auditorium to the outdoor kitchen throughout the night.  If you can help out call the office and leave a message with the answering service. 
Don’t forget we need baked items for our Cake stand everyday.  They can be dropped off during the day to the auditorium or directly to the Cake Stand in the evening.

Also, don’t forget to return your cash raffle books.  Additional books are available at the parish office if you feel you can sell more.
The Parish Office will be closed the entire week of the Festival.  Emergencies, of course, will be handled if they occur.
Also, don’t forget that next Saturday’s Vigil Mass at both worship sites will be moved to 4PM.
 This is your last chance to purchase advance food tickets for the Festival. They are on sale in the vestibule.  For $20 you get $25 worth of food tickets.  It’s a great bargain.

Don’t forget to check out our website, especially the Gospel Reflections.  This weekend Phil Strollo is presenting the reflections and next week it will be Celeste Onka.

Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you at the Festival.

PRAYER INTENTIONS OF THE HOLY FATHER ENTRUSTED TO THE APOSTLESHIP OF PRAYER FOR THE YEAR 2016

JULY

Universal: Indigenous Peoples
That indigenous peoples, whose identity and very existence are threatened, will be shown due respect.

Evangelization: Latin America and the Caribbean.
That the Church in Latin America and the Caribbean, by means of her mission to the continent, may announce the Gospel with renewed vigor and enthusiasm.



FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK

Dear Parishioners,

There are a couple of things that I wish to underline as we enter into June. First, we remember that it is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The love that is the soul of the Sacred Heart Devotion that embraces all. The better we understand it, the more firmly we are united with Jesus, with all his heart, all his soul, all his strength. So take your time and join us in prayer. Devotions are held at Sacred Heart worshipsite every Monday at 11:30 AM in English and Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:45 PM in Polish.

Second, the Ministry Day of Retreat (June 11) was a powerful experience that brought the Parish Ministries together for prayer and discussions as we begin to work on the Parish Pastoral Plan 2017. Our invited speaker was Msgr. Joseph Celano, pastor of St. Bernard Parish, Bridgewater. Being appointed by Pope Francis to be a "Missionary of Mercy" during the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, Msgr. Celano helped us to understand God's Mercy and the need of responding to it in our life.

Third, our Parish Picnic once again proved the old saying "those who pray together, stay together". Held at the Polish Falcon Camp it delivered lots of opportunities to have a fun time with good food and social time with fellow parishioners.

Fourth, Fathers' Day (June 19) is a great occasion to honor our fathers and to celebrate fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.

Last, but definitely not least, is the 150th anniversary of the entrusting of the original icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) to the Redemptorists by Pope Pius IX in 1866. Upon entrusting this beautiful icon of OLPH, Pope Pius IX asked the Redemptorists to "make her known throughout the world." Now the icon is the most recognizable image of the Blessed Virgin Mary around the world. Join us in honoring her at the celebration of OLPH on Sunday, June 26th at 5 PM in Sacred Heart Church with the OLPH Novena and Mass followed by a Procession.

Prayerfully yours,





Our God is a God of justice, but also a God of mercy. Through the blood of Jesus, God's mercy is available to us now. It is up to us to decide to accept it. We don't want to be camping out in "Sin Forest" when judgment time comes.
