“AROUND OUR PARISH”
Greetings in Christ,
Thank you to all the people who served and participated in the Hog Roast last Sunday at St. Isidore Parish. And thank you to all the people who are serving and participating at the St. Michael’s Festival this weekend. What a blessing to share a feast, fellowship, and food with family and friends!
Thank you to Fr. Brian Shininger of the Legionnaires of Christ for covering weekend Masses at St. Isidore as he visits with family. It is a blessing when parishes send their sons and daughters to serve the families of the Church in priesthood and religious life. Fr. Brian is currently serving in the San Francisco area. Let us pray for him and all the people he serves.
If you are looking for some good reading, you may want to read the Letter to Priests from Pope Francis dated August 4, 2019. It is a letter that could be read by anyone and it gives hope and encouragement to believers today. Also, Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia has recently written an important letter addressing the recent shootings that have happened in our country. Let us continue to pray for healing of the culture of death in our nation. The culture of death is the work of demons; they want to divide and destroy the human race from God and from one another. They want the collapse of family unity and Gospel values. The culture of death is a direct assault on the gift of life, marriage, and family. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He desires to redeem us each day from sin, evil, and death. He longs to give us life, so that we may all be one as He and the Father are one. The unity of faith that we share today is crucial for the survival of the Church in the modern age. Men, woman, and children, who profess their faith in Christ face opposition from the secular pagan culture that is growing in America. The witness that I see today from the people in our parishes brings great hope. The prayer and work that we offer each day does have an impact in our relationships with other people who may not want to receive the truth of the Gospel. Our spiritual sacrifices and prayers offered at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass bring new life to us and for the people for whom we offer our lives. Let us continue to pray, hope, and love in the faith we share together, in Christ.
God bless you all, Fr. Jake

St. Michael’s Ridge 116th Annual Festival
Sunday August 11, 2019
The festival is one of the biggest fund raisers for our church and it takes our entire church community to pull it together. You will see in your collection envelopes that we are starting to collect donations for the festival chicken the weekend of July 7th. If you do not have the church provided donation envelopes, you can still donate by putting your donation in a blank envelope marked for Festival Chicken. We will be collecting these donations all the way up until the weekend of the festival. Please keep your calendars open for the week prior to the Festival for festival prep and especially on August 11th for the big event.
Thanks in Advance the Festival Committee
