A 2014 Daily Prayer Walk with the Lord

Week 25 (Aug. 31-Sept. 6) completes Sacred Story Prayer by combining all five words:  CREATIONPRESENCEMEMORYMERCYETERNITY. Our prayer experience has helped us become aware of how the Spirit draws us to different themes, sometimes in ways we had not imagined. As always, be not afraid!  Learn more.


Join us Wednesday evenings to share our experience, 7-8 p.m. in the Parish Hall at St. Theresa’s. We will not meet on September 3. Our next Wednesday meeting will be September 10 with Week 26.

Patriotic Living Rosary and Community Lunch


Sunday, September 7, 12:15 PM, at the church


Our parish will gather together to participate in a patriotic living rosary. After celebrating our faith and our one nation under God, we will enjoy a community lunch prepared by the Knights of Columbus.


Parishioners will be the “beads” of the rosary that will encircle the inside of the church to lead us in prayer.  There will be songs to celebrate our Mother and the country. If you would like to be a part of the Patriotic Living Rosary there will be sign-up sheets in the pews that can be put in the collection basket, or turned in at the parish office. Even if you prefer not to be a “bead”, please come share in the celebration. Immediately after the rosary there will be a lunch, prepared by our Knights of Columbus, served in the parish hall.


Please contact Jolene Bradley at tummymouse00@yahoo.com with any questions.
