SEPTEMBER 23, 2018

Dear Parishioners,

    Our parish has been long blessed with dedicated volunteers who help to keep our church clean, our grounds beautiful, our programs running, and events in the church and school moving on schedule.  In the midst of Fr. Phil’s illness, we are doubly blessed to have so many of you going the extra mile.  This week, our heartfelt gratitude goes out to the people helping to care for Fr. Phil’s medical and nutritional needs, those who cleaned his house and the church office, those who are serving as sacristans before and after Masses, and all those who are running errands.  Also, a very special thank you to Gary Alles of Alles Brothers Furniture in Mt. Vernon for giving us a discount on Fr. Phil’s comfortable new recliner, and to all of those who donated towards its purchase.

    As this letter was being written, Fr. Phil was dealing with some side effects of chemotherapy, but getting good care and lots of rest at home.  He appreciates all the cards, and your loving thoughts and prayers. He continues to request no visitors so that he can conserve his energy, but we will update his Caring Bridge site frequently so you can check in on him there.  Please continue to pray for his comfort, peace and healing.

RESURRECTION’S AMERICAN HERITAGE GIRLS TROOP IN5301 is participating in the world-wide service project Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child sends gift-filled shoeboxes along with the word of God to impoverished children all over the world. Last year, because of the overwhelming generosity of our parish, we were able to send 124 boxes to Mexico. Our goal this year is 200 boxes! Our troop will be petitioning the parish after all masses on September 22nd and 23rd.   Monetary donations will be accepted from September 22nd to October 7th at the parish office, school office or in the Sunday collection. The board will purchase items and the girls will assemble the shoeboxes on November 11th. We pray for your continued support in our mission.

 DONATE BLOOD IN HONOR OF FATHER PHILHelp us celebrate Father Phil’s 70th birthday by donating blood to help him and others stay strong and continue to fight cancer.  In August, Father Phil was diagnosed with tongue cancer.  He is receiving treatments to fight this cancer.  Father Phil isn’t one who wants a lot of attention drawn to him, so this blood drive is a great way to show our support for him.  -The American Red Cross will be hosting a blood drive at Resurrection School on Thursday, September 27th, from 1:00-6:00 PM in the Resurrection Gymnasium.  Please enter Door #1.  To schedule your donation appointment, please call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter Sponsor Code:  Father Phil

Dr. John Wood, bestselling author of the Dynamic Catholic book Ordinary Lives, Extraordinary Mission, will be joining us on September 29th at Good Shepherd.  This exciting diocesan-wide event will begin at 9:00 am and end at 1:30 pm.  Tickets are $10 and childcare is available! All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to Marian Educational Outreach which benefits students with unique learning needs in our diocesan schools. This parish mission will be based on John’s brand new book, The Light Entrusted to You (Ignatius Press) Come rediscover how Catholicism is the greatest gift we can give to our children and grandchildren. You will learn practical ideas of how we can all pass on the faith in the modern world, and you will leave inspired and challenged to keep the flame of faith alive for the next generation!

TEC is a three-day experience for young people who are searching for goals, acceptance, meaning and community. Adults are also welcome and encouraged to attend as they increase our witness to our faith while experiencing their own encounter with Christ. Candidates can expect to meet others from all areas of the Diocese, find how God fits in your life, and encounter the Risen Jesus Christ. You will have time to reflect on your life, ideas, hopes, and dreams away from home, school, and/or work. You can find an application and more information at http://www.switec.org/ The next weekend is November 10-12, 2018 at St. Mary’s Church in Ireland.
