Charismatic Prayer Meeting
Sr. Mary Ann Nacke and her prayer group will be holding a charismatic prayer night
on Wednesday, May 27th at 7 pm in the Parish Center. All are invited to come and join
together in prayer.
Totus Tuus Coming
The week of June 8-12 we will be hosting Totus Tuus. Totus Tuus is a Latin phrase meaning
“totally yours” and is the name of a summer camp for children and youth. More info on the
program is given in this bulletin. Please consider enrolling your child in this great program.
Symbolon Ice Cream Social and Presentation
On Sunday May
there will be an Ice Cream Social and presentation in the Parish
Center to wrap up our Symbolon series. I will be giving a presentation on Michelangelo’s Last
Judgment painting in the Sistine Chapel. The figures, history, theology, drama and politics of the
fresco will be discussed. All are invited.
Contribution Letters to Parishioners
You probably noticed that you received a statement from the parish recently. We did this to try
and “clean up our data base.” Many times people do not inform the parish that they have moved
out of the parish, that they have moved within the parish or that they have changed their phone
number. Thus, our data base becomes out of date and we end up mailing envelopes, parish
mailings and the diocesan Globe newspaper to wrong addresses. Our data base is being
successfully updated through this mailing.
The mailing also included how much was given to the parish since January 1st. This was to
clear up any mistakes that may exist in the areas of envelopes, money counting and data entry.
When such mistakes go on for a whole year, it becomes very time consuming to sort them out.
We did not mean to offend anyone. We realize that some people do not use envelopes or make
one or two big contributions a year or donate time and talent. All gifts are appreciated and needed
and everyone should give in the best time and form for them. If any offense was taken, I and the
whole staff apologize.
If you did not receive a mailing, please call the office as we do not have you on our parish list.
Baseball Game Batter Up
On July 26th, we are taking a bus to the Twin Cities to watch the Twins play the New York Yankees.
The bus will leave at 7 am and return later that night. The cost of the trip is $70. Space is limited
so sign up soon.
Up From The Earth is a new ecumenical
program in Sioux City to get extra produce from
home gardens to people in need. The program
encourages home gardeners to "grow an extra
row" and facilitates the gathering and distribution
of excess fruits and veggies to those in need
through existing food pantries. In our parish,
Mark Taylor will be the Garden Produce Coordinator. Our produce would go to the Soup Kitchen.
This will NOT replace our fall Garden Share
program. Please contact Mark (490-6925) if you
are interested in growing extra produce, and he
will follow up.
Join us Wednesday, May 27th in the Blessed Sacrament Parish Center for a presentation by Kelly O’Brien.
Entitled “To live an inspiring life, you must be inspired.”
“A Call to Joy” by Matthew Kelly. Sr. Mary Ann Nacke
will facilitate the evening beginning at 7:00 pm–9:00pm,
with welcome and introductions, music led by Mike
McGowan and friends, musicians George Olson and
Kathy Baker, a Spirit-Led Intercessory Rosary by Deacon Kevin Poss and individual blessings from Father
Rupp. Coffee water and treats will be served.
