Please pray for our second graders in PRE as they prepare for and receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. There are prayer cards in the mezzanine area with student names and a “Prayer Partner Prayer”. There are 20 spaces on the card to mark each time you say this prayer. When you have finished saying the prayer 20 time, please put it in the box and pick up another card. We are trying to accumulate 5,000 prayers. We will keep you posted as to how many prayer have been received. Thank you for your willingness to help our students along their faith journey. Your prayers are greatly appreciated!
This year’s goal is to collect 50,000 cans of soup to be divided between five non-profit agencies: Salina Rescue Mission, Domestic Violence Association of Central Kansas, Ashby House, Salvation Army and Emergency Aid Food Bank. This is a very important collection to help those needing assistance in Saline County and has, over the last several years, met the yearly needs of soup for the above Agencies. The Souper Bowl of Hope Collection for 2016 begins on January 24th and ends on February 6th. Help is being sought to collect Soup at the Dillons Store, 2350 Planet Avenue, Salina on Saturday Jan 23rd, 30th, and Feb 6th from 10 am to 6pm and on Sunday Jan 24th and 31st from 1pm to 5pm. The shifts are 2 hour intervals. If you would like to assist in this collection or have any question please contact Jerry Taylor at 785-827-4413 or 785-643-6549. Donations of soup or cash may be dropped off at the church. With discount purchasing available to the Souper Bowl drive, a $25 cash donation will purchase 65 cans of soup!!
CHANGE OF DATE AND TIME
We are changing the date and time of our high school discussion group for this semester. We will meet on Monday evenings once a month from 7:00-8:00pm. The first meeting will be Monday, February 8th and we will meet in the Upper Lounge Area (above the offices). The topic for this gathering is “Current Issues…What does the Bible Say”. We will discuss current topics in the media and how the 10 Commandments answers those issues. All high school students are welcome!
CYO meets every Sunday evening from 6:00 - 7:30 PM in the CYO room at St. Mary's parish. CYO is open to ALL high school students.
