SAINT OF THE WEEK - St. Mary Magdalene Feast Day July 22
Mary was probably from Magdala, a town not far from the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. Nothing is known of her history. The Gospels say that Jesus drove seven demons from her. Jesus’ response to the love of Mary Magdalene shows how God abundantly repays love, faithful service, and courageous witness. She stood by Jesus even to his death by crucifixion when his apostles had fled in fear, and sought to care lovingly for his body. She was privileged with the first news of the resurrection and the first appearances of her Risen Lord. Jesus singled out Mary Magdalene for an especially tender encounter. He had freed her from a life of torment (and probably great sin), she had responded by freely giving him a heart full of love, and her reward was to be the first to see his glory.

Adult Bible Study:  Our next “Great Adventure”, Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John.  Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. in the social hall. Jesus comes to meet us and beckons us to follow him. He calls us to be his disciples, to trust him, to open ourselves to his merciful love, and to love others as he has loved us.  Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ.

OUR WORKS OF MERCY EVERYDAY
As a parish we will be concentrating this year on doing works of mercy. There will be a large glass vase in the sanctu-ary, into which we will place pieces of paper on which we have written specific works of mercy we have performed. Each paper would be the size of a Post-it note, to be rolled up and put in the vase. The object of the project is to fill this large container with expressions of mercy!

We have had many requests for the contact info for Fr. Emeka Okwuosa. This is the website where you can find more information on his mission:
