"Go, sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me." At that statement his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions. Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!" - Mk 10:21c-2
Theology on Tap
Theology on tap for October will be held on Thursday, October 15 at 7:00pm at Portneuf Valley brewery. The featured speaker will be Fr. Bill Taylor. The topic will be “How Catholics Talk about the Forgiveness of Sins.” As always, each table will receive one free pitcher of beer courtesy of Willie’s Chevron. Theology on Tap is a nationwide movement of adult Catholics. People meet in pubs and restaurants to enjoy good food and drink and hear a short presentation on a theological topic. Unfortunately, we will not be offering Catholic Kids Night Out anymore. We have been doing theology on tap for 5 months and participation in Catholic Kids Night Out has slowly decreased. For September we only had 2 kids. It is not feasible on many levels to continue to offer something that is not being utilized. Our Catholic Kids Night Out coordinator, Jennifer Jechart, has provided us with the names and numbers of her teenage helpers. You are free to give us a call here at St. John’s and we can provide you with those names and numbers so you can arrange your own babysitting for your kids if you so desire. For more information on Theology on Tap, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Blessed Mother has said in her apparitions, that next to the Holy Mass, the Rosary is the most powerful prayer that can bring about positive changes, conversions, and saving help from Heaven. The Rosary is a powerful weapon against evil, to bring us true peace. It is said that when you carry a Rosary, Satan has a headache. When you use it, he collapses.
The Mysteries of the Rosary are Scripture-based where the songs are printed. Let us pray the Hail Holy Queen, asking our Blessed Mother to pray for us as Mother of Mercy.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to you do we send up our sights, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Reconciliation will be at 3-4:30pm each Saturday, unless no priest is available (check bulletin, or with office for precise schedule). Reconciliation is held in the St. Anthony Chapel arrival for reconciliation is greatly appreciated!
