Holy Land Olive Carvings
On the weekend of May 28th / 29th, 2016, there will be a display of beautiful olivewood handmade carvings from the Holy
Land in our Church. These Carvings are made by the Christians of Bethlehem who use them as their source of income.
These brothers and sisters of ours are enduring hardships at
this moment because of the volatile situation in their home
country. Christians in the Holy Land used to be more than
37% of the population. They are less than 1% now because of
the situation. As Christians of faith, it is our duty to support
our brothers and sisters in Bethlehem. YOU can support them
by purchasing some of these beautiful carvings after mass.

“But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all
truth.” (John 16-13)
Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help us know and live the truth. To
prepare ourselves, we need to open our hearts to receive this gift
before we can give it. Develop a daily prayer routine to ask the
Holy Spirit to help guide our thoughts and actions.

God’s glory...as a priest, deacon or in the consecrated life? Call

May 23rd at 7:00PM for our first “Witness on Tap”. This is an
opportunity for all the men to come together to listen to and be
encouraged by other men of faith. 1 Peter 3:15 states “be ready

the hope that is within you with all meekness”. We are blessed to
have Andrew Schmiedicke do just that. So come join us for an
hour or so. Enjoy a meal, appetizers and or a beverage and some
good old fashioned brotherhood with one another. If you plan on
ordering a meal or apps please come earlier as we would like to
kick the program off at 7 sharp.
