Vacation was wonderful! While I love St Mary and Rush County, it is good to be away for a short while but it is also good to be home.
We had a busy first (‘half’) week of school. It was great to see all the smiling faces and new faces. St Mary Catholic School and Preschool has over 100 students enrolled this year from preschool to sixth grade. The theme for the year is “Anchored in God’s Love.” We have open enrollment, so your child would still be welcome to come “achieve” with us as we grow with God. It is hard to beat fulltime Christ-centered Faith formation and education.
This weekend our Sunday Religious Education Program resumes. We will have preschool to sixth grade on Sunday morning from 8:40a to 9:50a. I would like to address all the parents briefly at the start. Our Junior High and High School teens will meet Sunday night from 5:30p-7:45p. Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) will meet in the parish conference room on Sunday morning.
August 15th is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Mary into heaven. Since it falls on Saturday this year, it is not a holy day of opportunity (or obligation). Yet, we will still have Mass at 8:30a for those who would like to gather to rejoice in the God’s faithfulness to His perfect Handmaid, Mary, and God’s promise to each of us to raise us up Body and Soul to heaven. Congratulations and prayers to Brian Ripberger (parishioner) and Jessica Corya, who will be getting married next Saturday, August 15 here at St Mary. They are a lovely couple. We all wish them a lifelong marriage of joy, happiness, and holiness.
Next, Sunday, August 16, 2015 between the 7:30a Mass and 10a Mass, we will host an important Parish Town Hall Meeting to discuss and update the parish membership on the Connected in the Spirit Process progress to date, especially what is being proposed for St Mary, Rushville and our Cohort neighbors. All interested parishioners are invited and encouraged to attend. St Mary, Pray for us. ~ Fr. Gries
