Food Pantry Collection
Every Sunday we collect non -perishable food items to support our two local food pantries, Faith in
Action - Earleville and Asbury Methodist - Millington who supply food to our most vulnerable neighbors. Please drop your can goods, cereals, pasta, canned fish and meat, can veggies / fruit, peanut butter, jelly (please no glass jars), etc., into the receptacles at the church entrances. We CAN make a difference ... One Can at a Time!
Thank you for your generosity.
Do NOT donate opened food! It will be thrown away.
eGiving with Faith Direct
This month we are introducing a new and exciting way for you to support our parish offertory and second collections: Faith Direct enables parishioners to make your Church contribution through either direct debit from your checking/savings account or through your credit/debit card. No more writing checks or searching for envelopes on the way out the door. Now you can apply the convenience of direct debit to your parish offerings in much the same way you as your may now use it to make your mortgage, car or tuition payments.
Please join me in enrolling by the responding the mailing you will receive or visit www.faithdirect.net to enroll securely online. Our parish code is MD916
2018-19 Religious Education Calendar
Religious Education classes begin Sunday, Sept. 16 at 9:15 am. Please pray for our students as they begin this school year. We are looking forward to a wonderful year!
150th Convocation is an opportunity for the leadership throughout the Diocese to envision ministry through a new lens, moving forward as a Church of missionary disciples rooted in the Joy of the Gospel. The new lens or pathway has as its foundation, for mission and ministry, the vision shared with us by Our Holy Father, Francis. It is a call to be missionary disciples who live out the Joy of the Gospel through encountering each other, contemporary society, and especially those on the periphery. This call to joy-filled missionary discipleship has an individual witness dimension in addition to a corporate or ecclesial dimension. All individual witness and corporate or ecclesial witnesses should strive to be joy-filled disciples living out or mirroring joy and discipleship. Convocation 150 is our opportunity to celebrate, affirm, and deepen our ministry to missionary discipleship rooted in the Joy of the Gospel.
25 delegates are invited to attend. The cost is $25 per person. Fr. Jim said St. Dennis reimburse money of those who attend, after the event.
Convocation 150 will take place on Saturday, November 3rd, at the Ocean City Convention Center in Ocean City, Maryland. Visit www.cdow.org to read more about the 150th Anniversary. More information in the next week or two.
