Weekend at Birney’s
This past week, I had the honor of
baptizing my niece's daughter--Nora
Grace. Our newest member to the family is named after my mother, whose
name is Grace. What made this particular celebration unique for me, is with
this baptism I am the proud Uncle to
twenty nieces & nephews and now one
grand-niece! This leads me to a few different reactions.
First, I'm not sure I like the idea of
having 'grand' in front of my name.
Some have told me the proper title is
great-uncle, but I'm going to stick with
grand. Second, with all these nieces
and nephews, you'd think one of my
siblings would have included good old
'Uncle Tim' in the naming of their
child....not even a middle name, as of
today! So, I guess my best hope is now
with all the 'grands' who will making
their way into the world in the years
Welcome Home WYD Youth Day Pilgrims
Our pilgrims who made their way to
Poland for the World Youth Day celebrations have returned to the USA. I
looked for them intently on TV, but was
not able to pick them out from the one
million+ crowd. Many people will tell us
that the Church is not reaching the
youth, that we are in decline or perhaps
even dying. If anyone took the time to
see how many young people from all
over the world gathered together to celebrate their faith with the Vicar of
Christ, you'd see the answer to that
misconceived observation. The Church
is, and has always been, in need of
constant renewal and inspiration from
the Holy Spirit, but I believe we are very
much alive and doing much good
throughout the world. I look forward to
hearing the many stories from our WYD
pilgrims, and ask a few of them to share
their reflections in an upcoming bulletin.
The next WYD will be in 2019 and take
place at Panama...sign me up!
Greetings from World Youth Day!!!!!

God Is Making Me New
Words of St. Francis of Assisi I have been all things unholy. If
God can work through me, He can work through anyone.
Scripture Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation; the old is gone, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Prayer Creator God, before meeting Christ on His way to Damascus, the Apostle Paul persecuted Christians with passion and
hatred. He even held the robes of those who stoned St. Stephen.
Yet in the aftermath of his conversion and baptism, he spent his
life serving Christ, carrying his message to the world, and building
up your church. Father, I want to be transformed too. Please help
me to always have hope that, despite the failures of my past, you
are making me new. Amen.
Practice Today, as I follow Christ, I will offer myself to God with
hope and expectation that he will accomplish His purposes
through me. (from Thirty Days with St. Francis of Assisi)

Blessings to YOU
for your continued support of Youth Ministry
It has been a busy summer of spiritual travel for the
youth of our parish, and there are so many adults who
help make possible our annual Young Neighbors in
Action and Just5Days community service trips.
A big shout out to you, our fellow Cabrini parishioners, who support Youth Ministry events throughout the
year to help participants raise the money to attend
YNIA and J5D. Most importantly, thank you for your
prayers during our preparation and our time away.
This year, groups traveled to Kentucky and Chicago (YNIA) and St. Joseph, MI (J5D), serving the poor
and marginalized according to Catholic social teachings. All of the weeklong community service programs
were AWESOME, according to our young parishioners.
Thank you to the parents for entrusting us with
your children (they are great!); to the adult leaders
(who took vacation time to share their faith in action);
to the families who let us use their cars (so we didn’t
have to rent vehicles); and for the parents who shared
our journey by transporting luggage to and from the
sites (they didn’t stay the week, they just drove there
and back with a car full of luggage!)
As we look ahead to a new year for Youth Ministry,
continue to pray for our young parishioners, that they
continue to be Christ to others while strengthening
their personal relationships with God.

HOST AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT
Sunday, August 14, 2016
St. Frances Cabrini High School is planning to recruit
through the council on Standards for International Educational Travel, CSIET, several international students for the next
school year. We have been approached by agencies interested in assisting us with the international students studying at
Cabrini High School in preparing for a college career at a U.S.
In order to enroll international students, we need to identify Cabrini Catholic Parish or School families who would be
interested in providing home-stay housing.
