Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible will help you uncover the story woven throughout Scripture, so you can get the “big picture” of the Bible and understand what it’s all about.

FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION OPEN FOR PRESCHOOL-GRADE 12
Registration is now open for fall 2018. We look forward to having your child join us at our first class on September 19, 2018. This year we are adding the Cathechesis of the Good Sheperd program for preschoolers ages 3-6. A few spaces are available on Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon. CGS on Wednesday evening is full.
What is Catechisis of the Good Sheperd all about? Here is a blog from St. Patrick Cedar Rapids and a video from from St. John the Evangelist Parish in Indiana.

MESSAGE FROM THE NEXT STEP COMMITTEE
The Next Step Committee thanks everyone who has helped support our church and school upgrades. Check our Next Step page under the "About Us" tab to read their update on the project including a summary of the construction and the positive impact on our church membership and school enrollment and the wealth of new offerings for parishioners, students, and outreach. To extend your pledge or to make a pledge or donation, contact Regena Huffman in the Parish Office.
CHARITABLE GIVING AND THE NEW TAX LAWS
Our reason for giving hasn’t changed! Rather than giving in order to save on tax, we give to a cause, to a mission, in the name of Christian charity. Certain individuals and families might end up saving some tax under the new law. Perhaps those who do will think to donate a portion of those savings through charitable giving.

FOR YOUR SAFETY
If you are approached before or after Mass by anyone asking for financial assistance, please do not comply.
