John Girotti St. Bernard Parish, September 26, 6:30 p.m. Fr. John Girotti explores the reasons why family members, relatives, and friends drift away from the regular practice of the Catholic faith. Many who are skeptical of organized religion will identify themselves as “spiritual,” but not religious. What can be said of this growing phenomenon? Can we be spiritual without being religious? There are also many parents asking themselves, “I raised my children Catholic, so why did they leave the Church?” In fact, it is not uncommon among the younger generations to claim they are not being fed at Mass. In the second half of this presentation, Fr. Girotti will also unpack methods on how Catholics can share the faith with others and inspire them to be intentional.

Overcome your struggles with Walking Toward Eternity: Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart Bible Study. In our busy lives we are faced with obstacles that aggravate us, discourage us, and can even hinder our relationship with Christ. Finding the time to address them is often lost by the business of life. How do we overcome these obstacles, and hear God’s voice in our lives? Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart, the second series in the Walking Toward Eternity program, is a challenging study that can open our eyes to obstacles in our Christian walk. Through prayer, reflection, guidance and the aid of the Holy Spirit, we begin to engage these difficulties in a positive way as we continue toward our goal of union with Christ. Join us for Walking Toward Eternity: Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart at St. Bernard Parish, every Monday for eight weeks beginning October 3, 6 p.m. A working prayer journal is a large part of this program. $16 per journal. Couples can share a journal. Each week you will be asked to reflect on the weekly topic. Scholarships available. For information or to register call Colleen at 739-0331 or email: [email protected] Guide Book & Directory Advertising Opportunity We are in the process of updating our annual Guide Book & Directory for St. Bernard Parish. This book will contain everything pertinent to St. Bernard Parish: the various ministries, organizations, committees, activities, functions and events plus a complete directory of all members. This book is being provided and directmailed to each family at no cost to St. Bernard, and it is again being subsidized by local businesses that advertise. If you own or manage a business and would like to find out about advertising in our book, please call Colleen at our Parish Office at 739-0331. Recent survey results by Guide Book Publishing show that 92.1% of families would rather patronize a Guide Book & Directory advertiser than a non-advertiser. It “will pay” to advertise in our new Guide Book & Directory. Update Membership Information Do we have YOUR family membership record correct? Here is your chance to update YOUR record for our annual Guide Book & Directory (if you haven’t already done so). It is time for us to update our database with any changes, additions, or deletions that may have occurred in YOUR family over the past year. Have you changed your phone number? Have you moved? Are you preparing to move soon? Are all of your children still at home and are they all included in your membership record? Do you not want your record published? If you have not already informed St. Bernard Parish Office about changes to your record, please let us know now so that the information in the Guide Book & Directory is correct. Please call Edna at our Parish Office at 739-0331. Thank you for your help!
