                                   EVANGELIZATION   REPORT

                                           MARCH  09, 2015

 

Four members of our commission attended the Christian Service Coordinator’s

Association meeting on February 24th. at Sacred Heart Seminary. The topic was

Christian service in Diverse communities guided by St. Paul’s lessons on Evangelization.

A variety of parish types were discussed and ways were offered to welcome new members.

Culture aspects and ways of prayer were identified in the merging of Christ, Our Light!

Thanks to Marcia Ouellette, Fran Stage, Catherine Cushing and Karen Roush for their

participation.

 

The Wee Care Baby Shower was a giant success. The generosity of the parishioners was

shown in the numerous baby gifts given out of love and care.  The baby bottle collection

netted over two thousand dollars.  The twenty who attended the shower enjoyed a meal,

games, and guest speaker from Life Span. Thank you to Marcia Ouellette, Lillian Grant,

Fran Stage, Stefanie Lawler and Betty Sheehan for their organizational skills.

 

The  Friday Lenten soup lunches served after Mass are well attended and offer a welcome

atmosphere for sharing hospitality.

 

The Adult Bible Study concluded it’s four week series on St. Augustine. The series was

thoroughly enjoyed by the 24 in attendance.

 

Easter baskets have been placed in the gathering area for parishioners to take home

and fill with assorted items needed by both adult men, adult women and children.

They will be distributed during Holly Week.

The Easter egg tree can be found in the back of the church and parishioners can choose

to send cards to the names of the homebound and ill posted on the hanging eggs.

 

On March 5th. Father Donald Demmer and Paul Bozymowski conducted a  meeting to discuss the book Rediscovering Catholicism; a book freely given to each parishioner over the Christmas

Holiday.  Great interest was shown and further discussions are being planned.
