I am pleased to announce that this fall we will be offering the Bp. Barron DVD Course entitled, “Jesus Christ: Priest, Prophet, & King”.

“Jesus is the Anointed One – the ultimate priest, prophet and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Join us as we deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ through Bp. Robert Barron’s new DVD-based Study Program: Jesus Christ: Priest, Prophet, King.

Explore the biblical archetypes of priest, prophet and king and see how Jesus is the ultimate fulfillment of each one. Throughout this experience, you will better understand who Jesus really is and also realize your own priestly, prophetic and kingly mission.” (from DVD jacket).

This series will be offered at two different times: Wednesdays 2:00 PM-3:30 PM beginning Sep 25th and Saturdays 5:00 PM-6:00 PM beginning Oct 5th. The highly recommended Student Study Guide is $22.00 (includes shipping). It will not be required by those joining the Family Faith Formation group on Saturday, due to the truncated teaching time. Please register by calling the parish office. As usual, please make your $22.00 check out to St. Kateri Parish.

I am excited and hope to see you all, again, for this series.

PARISH MISSION TRIP - We need your input We are exploring the possibility of organizing a Parish Mission Trip to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota for 2020. We will be working with Ss. Peter and Paul Parish downtown and the local Jesuits to help us organize the Mission Trip. Parish Mission Trips are usually funded by the participants themselves.

The trip would probably be about 10 days long. We will assist with some project while the Lakota people will teach us about their culture, spirituality and history. Possible projects could include tutoring, building, remodeling, etc. In order to better plan our Mission Experience, we would like you to fill out a short survey. This will help us determine the level of interest, best time, and available skills. You can place the completed survey in the offertory basket or take to the Parish Office or Gift Shop.
