Good News for our Food Pantry Ministry!

       Wonderful food pantry donations in April, totaling 342 pounds!  Thank you for making this Easter season a blessed one for those in desperate need within our community!  Let’s continue to address the problem of food insecurity in the coming months. 

       We will be providing May’s donations of non-perishable food to The Place of Forsyth County, collecting food each week leading up to the 3rd Sunday of the month (May 17th – Breakfast Sunday), which is the official collection day for the month.  As always, the biggest needs are for canned soups and vegetables, canned pasta (ravioli, Beefaroni, etc), canned fruit, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, and anything that can be stored for a long period of time. 

       Donations can be placed in the tubs located next to the welcome table in the narthex – no glass bottles, please!  Please begin or continue to help in this effort to assist local families in need – thank you!

The Knights of Columba are breaking out of the kitchen!  After a enthusiastic organizational meeting this Spring, the Knights of Columba are adding additional oppportunities for the men of the parish to gather for fellowship, service, and ministry.  You'll begin to see more events advertized here on the website as well as in the weekly Parish Post Newsletter and Sunday bulletin. 

       Our first fellowship event will take place Sunday, June 14.  We'll gather at the church from 4:00-4:30 and we'll have Knights of Columba polo shirts for sale.  At 4:30 we'll carpool to Stars & Strikes Bowling Lanes in Cumming (133 Merchants Square, Cumming, GA).  Shirts are $15 each and the cost for bowling is approximately $4 per game.  Come & bowl with us; or if you're not a bowler, come and be part of the fellowship.  If you have any questions or to RSVP, contact Larry Hutson or Bill Parkinson.

Ascension Day Mass

Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 12:00 noon

Jesus said to his disciples, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you-- that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled." Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and he said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. See, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high."Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and, lifting up his hands, he blessed them. While he was blessing them, he withdrew from them and was carried up into heaven. And they worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy; and they were continually in the temple blessing God.  (St. Luke 24: 44-53)

 

Join us on Thursday, May 14 at 12:00 noon as we commemorate Jesus' ascension into heaven.  Low Mass will be offered at 12:00 noon in the church, and Bible study (and a light lunch) follows from 12:30 - 1:30 for those who can stay.

Youth Sunday & Parish Picnic

Sunday, May 17

Last Day of Sunday School + Teacher Appreciation + Youth Ministry Celebration Sunday + Parish Picnic

 

     Mark your calendars now for Youth Sunday!  On Sunday morning, May 17 at both our 9:00 and 11:15 Masses, we will give thanks for young people of our parish and wonderful youth ministry program.  
     We will celebrate the success of another great year of Sunday school as we thank the teachers officially during the 11:15 Mass.  And at both the 9 and 11:15 Masses, teenagers will be serving as ushers, greeters, lectors, chalice bearers, and one of our teenagers, Cole Ferguson, will be our preacher that morning, including the 7:45 Mass.
     The entire day will conclude with a festive and delicious cookout at the talented hands of our Knights of Columba.  They will provide the main dish, and everyone is asked to bring a vegetable or side dish to share.  The cookout begins at 12:30pm.     Please plan to join us for the celebration and parish luncheon at 12:30pm as we rejoice in the growth of our Christian Education and Youth Ministries!  
>> Please note:  because the Knights of Columba will be busy at the grill for the parish lunch, there will NOT be a full breakfast on May 17.  Doughnuts, fruit, coffee and juice will be available throughout the morning, though.
