Parish Council Members needed
Dear Parishioners, we are soliciting names for our Parish Council. We have spots for 3 at-large members. During this time of transition with pastors, the Parish Council plays a huge role in assisting the Pastor in guiding the parish. If we have more than three nominees, then we will have an election in early June for those three spots. You can submit nominations to Diana Braun at [email protected] or by completing this simple form. We will accept nominations until Sunday, May 23.
Here is a list of our current Parish Council members:
Scott Stratman (Chair) Lisa Reising (Vice Chair)
Sarah Bohrer (Secretary) Jonathan Emery
Bob Farney Ruth Ann Lichlyter
Becky Loehr Roland Rosario

Prayer for Renewal
Over the next several months, we are asking our parishioners to pray for renewal in our parish. This doesn't mean that there is a crisis or that things are falling apart! It simply means that we should always be asking the Lord to guide us down the road that He sets before us.
From now through the Summer we will be asking the Lord to bring renewal through the Holy Spirit. We invite you to pray the prayer below, asking God to help us grow as a parish by embracing the people He sends us.

Announcements for May 12
Just a reminder that this is our last weekend for our drive-up Communion option after the 11 am Mass. Anyone who cannot attend Mass and wishes to receive Communion at home can call the parish center to get on our list of visits. This includes those who are homebound and who used to be visited by our Legion of Mary. Please call us so that we can make sure you get visited.
I encourage you to mark your calendars for a Picnic in the Park on Sunday, June 13 after the 11 am Mass. It will be held at Vann Park with free food and free drinks. There are more details to come, but it will be a nice opportunity for us to be together in an outdoor and safe environment.
In case you’re wondering, the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord gets transferred to next Sunday in our diocese. So, tomorrow is not the Ascension, but we will celebrate it on Sunday.
After you read this message, I invite you to join me in praying the Hail Mary for peace in the Holy Land. Let’s pray that this seemingly endless conflict can come to a peaceful resolution.
We are very excited to offer to our parishioners a free subscription to the online resource called Formed. You can think of it as Netflix for Catholics, but it has so much more than movies! Click here to learn more.
There's a brilliant series called The Search that I encourage you to watch and share with friends.
