Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples." He said to them, "When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test."…
"And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?"…Lk 11: 1-13
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”
