Please welcome Mrs. Joni Schaff to our Staff. She will be working as Assistant to Mrs. Bertha Rauch and Mrs. June Frechou and will be responsible for helping with the Bulletin, the Calendar, and various Bookkeeping and other responsibilities.
Many of you already know her, and of her family and their life and work in our Parish. We had asked publicly for prayers when Joni’s husband Val was pronounced a paraplegic for life, and watched as he made a complete recovery. During his time in the Catholic hospital in which they were staying, Joni kept the TV tuned to the station that showed the Chapel, the Mass, and the Tabernacle.
Her prayerful witness will be great value to our staff and our Parish life. She will have an e-mail address in the next day or two.

Need a movie night compatible with the Faith?
The main writer for the movie is Barbara Nicolosi Harrington, a devout Catholic who’s life work centers around the intersection of faith and culture.
Mark your calendars if you’d like a break from your usual TV fare, to learn about the amazing events at Fatima, or are interested in supporting those working to promote the Faith through broadcast media.
Beginning this school year, PSR for grades PK-10 will shift to Family Catechesis. Parents, with guidance and support from experienced catechists at a monthly parent meeting, will teach two formal lessons each month at home at their family’s convenience. The whole family will also attend a monthly fellowship event at the parish. Family Catechesis will run from September to May. Registration is currently open.
