Notes from Our Pastor

40 Days for Life Sept 25-Nov 3, 2019
You Can Help Save Lives!  Our parish is participating in the “40 Days for Life”
campaign.  The most visible part of the campaign is the peaceful prayer vigil outside the Planned Parenthood abortion facility at Forest Park and Boyle every day for 40 days. Our parish is covering there from 1 pm to 7 pm on Saturday, October 26th . Please consider signing up to be a Prayer Volunteer at Planned Parenthood. 

Children's Liturgy
Dear Seven Holy Founders Community,
We would like to invite you to attend our Children's Liturgy of the Word. On the second Sunday of each month, we invite young children (ages 2- 7) to participate in a lesson and activity about the Gospel. (We ask that at least one parent of 2 and 3 year olds attends with them). The priest will call up all children for a blessing before the First Reading, and children will return to their pews before the Offertory. At this time, Children's Liturgy will be held in the rectory. The upcoming date is November 10th at 9am Mass. For questions or concerns, please contact gailshf@aol.com  

2019/2020 PSR CALENDAR

Dear Generous Parishioners
With the Christmas season rapidly approaching,
Seven Holy Founders St. Vincent
de Paul Society is once again asking
for assistance of our “Neighbors in Need.”
We are asking you, our generous parishioners,
to consider adopting a less fortunate
family for Christmas. This can be
done by individuals or by organizations.
Your generosity last year provided 28 families with warm clothing, toys, food and personal items. We anticipate an increase in the number of families seeking assistance this year.
For those of you who are not able to adopt a family or join a group, but would still like to participate, we will have trees in the back of church with stars to purchase
items. We will be needing items such as blankets, pillows, bath and kitchen towels, diapers and gift cards.
Thank you in advance for you continued support for “Our Neighbors in Need.” If you have any questions or to sign up to adopt a family (either individually or as a group), please call Patty Papke at 680-3134.
