Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
When the days for Jesus' being taken up were
fulfilled, he resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem, and he sent messengers ahead of him. On the way they entered a Samaritan village to prepare for his reception there, but they
would not welcome him because the destination of his journey was Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume
them?" Jesus turned and rebuked them, and they journeyed to another village.
As they were proceeding on their journey someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." Jesus answered him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head."
And to another he said, "Follow me." But he replied, "Lord, let me go first and bury my father." But he answered him, "Let the dead bury their dead. But you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God." And another said, "I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home." To him Jesus said, "No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God."…Lk 9: 51-62.
We had a great time this week at Vacation Bible School! Thanks to everyone who helped make this year special! We especially thank those ministries who supplied a hot meal each night to the children and volunteers: Marian Servants of the Visitation, Catholic Daughters, Knights of Columbus, Rosary Altar Society, and Holy Ghost Dad's Club.
Through the children's generosity and t-shirt sales, we were able to donate
$350 to St. Vincent de Paul's Uniforms for Kids program. We look forward to doing this again next year! Have a safe and blessed summer!

Jubilee Year of Mercy
The Jubilee Year of Mercy began December 8, 2015, the fiftieth anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council. Here are a few important themes for reflection during this important year:
Jesus is the “face” of the Father’s mercy
Mercy is “the beating heart of the Gospel”
Mercy “demands justice”
