Registration is Open and Waiting for You. It is hard to believe that we are already into August and the Fall decorations are already in stores along with back-to-school supplies. With back-to-school, it also means Back-to-Family Faith Formation.
We are excited to build upon the family faith formation program by providing sessions and resources to parents; proven curriculum for children to learn about and demonstrate their faith; gatherings; and service opportunities that continue to nurture and express our Catholic faith.
A huge thanks to Phil Schadtle (Mike’s brother), who donated his time and equipment last week to help us resolve a large issue with the water at the rectory.

When Jesus encounters the centurion in the Gospel of Matthew (8:5-13), he meets a person of deep faith and humility who knows that healing comes from God alone. The centurion proclaims: “Lord, I am not worthy that you should come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed.”

Our retreat theme this year, Only Say the Word…, is based on the belief that God can – and will – heal us, and all of creation, if we have faith.
