Stepped Out & Served

Last weekend some of our parish disciples helped bring food to those in need. In one case they watched as a young family who had never needed to ask for help before, came for assitance.

Some of our disciples sweated up a storm as they worked.

In one of our kid friendly activities, 10,000
nutritional meals were prepared for
people in our area and around the world.

Thank you all for saying yes.

Welcome New School Families

Last night all of the families new to the school were invited to an informational meeting. Some families were long time parishioners whose children are just entering the school. Others are new to the community.

Both Fr. Damian and Dr. Blue took advantage of the new projector in the Steinhausen Center when they made their presentations.

Afterwards there was a chance to ask questions and/or meet one another.

Preschool Open House

The first thing we did at the Open House was drop off supplies.

Then we visited the new Reading Tent.

There was a lot to explore.

We are excited for Preschool to begin this week!

Step Out, Serve & Pray

A change in the format of Step Out & Serve this year was added prayer.

This year there was a number of Prayer Sessions (including Play Dough
Prayer) when people chose the project they would like to work on.

After they finished their projects last weekend they
gathered in the Steinhausen Center. There they split
into child or adult groups, reflected and prayed.

After processing they had done, there was food.
Thank you to the generous Disciples of Christ
who worked so diligently for others this weekend.

Air Conditioning

The compressor for the sanctuary's air condintioning went out Wednesday night/Thursday morning. During the all school Mass Thursday the power all had to be shut off to fix things.

Although power was soon restored to the building and there was
 air in the Social Level, a lot of work had to be done.

A new compressor was flown in and arrived Friday afternoon.

But the work continues to make certain we can
enjoy Mass this weekend without being
distracted by the heat and humidity.

Fr Wee's Open House

For the second time this year, Fr Wee invited all
attending Mass Friday morning to his home
for an Open House.

It was a chance for many who see each other
at Mass to get to know one another better.

Cosmas also enjoyed the Open House, though
he didn't seem to get as much food as he wanted.

Our House

With an eye towards the future, and based on recommendations from the Finance Council and the Pastoral Council, the parish bought this house at 902 Shamrock Road. It is near Fr Damian's house. After a few repairs are done the plan is to rent it.

First Day of School

The slight drizzle didn't dampen the first day of school.

Students figured out where everything goes ...

and learned about their rooms.

Some of the most fun was just being with friends again.

Happy First Day!
