It’s that time of year again to pre-heat the oven, flour the pans, grease the cookie sheets, or line the cupcake holders! Fall Festival needs parishioners to bake a goodie for the Sojourners Country Store that will start offering items by donation starting at 4:00 on Sunday, Oct 4th. Remember that fresh or canned produce is always welcome, too. Just bring your item to Mass the weekend of Oct 3-4 and leave it in the kitchen and we will get it to the proper location or you may just bring it with you when you come to the dinner and activities at 4:00. Thanks for your support and yummy participation! If you have any questions, please contact Mary Lee Beckman at 825-9234.

On Thursday evenings, October 15, 22 and 29, from 7:00pm-8:00pm in the parish hall, Fr. Keith will teach a class on Women in the Bible.

All those who minister to children or young people are to be educated about the nature of child sexual abuse, how it is perpetrated, how to report it, and strategies for prevention. The Diocese of Salina has implemented a training program by the name of “VIRTUS”. VIRTUS is a national program, widely in use in dioceses throughout the United States. It is a web-based on-line training program that specializes in helping churches and religious organizations create safe environments for children and youth. The program is mandatory for all adults [employees or volunteers] who interact on a regular basis with children in the Salina Diocese. To learn more or begin training, CLICK HERE.
