Mass Times Changes
Mass times for Sunday at both St. John and Transfiguration are expected to change before end of summer to accommodate the ministerial needs of the entire parish. Details are still being worked out.
If anyone is musically inclined and would be interested in playing at Transfiguration masses on occasion, please contact Fr. Thomas or Bob Dunlap.
Next week we will have a 2nd collection for ACUE. Each of us is called to share his or her gifts in support of our Diocesan Alliance for Catholic Urban Education (ACUE) schools. Your gift will ensure the availability of a Catholic education to the children of the urban areas of the Diocese.. Please be as generous as you can.
VBS Project Donation
This year at Vacation Bible School, the children collected a total of $200 for mission programs in Zambia and Tanzania. Our parish has been challenged to match the funds. This challenge will continue until the end of July, and a container has been placed in the vestibule for donations. For more information about the projects, Contact Anna Webster at 502-686-0894. Thanks for your support!
Carrollton Community Health Screening
On Thursday, July 25, from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Life Line Screening will be here in the Parish Hall. Life Line is the Nation’s leading mobile preventive health screening company. These screenings detect vascular disease, irregular heartbeat, and osteoporosis. Sign-up and more information will be available in the coming weeks. All screening results are reviewed by board-certified physicians who are licensed in our state. We offer five key tests that check for blocked carotid arteries, an irregular heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation, abdominal aortic aneurysms, hardening of the arteries in the legs (PAD) and your risk for osteoporosis. We also offer several blood screenings (cholesterol), diabetes, c-reactive protein, liver enzymes, etc.). Our most popular screening package includes the four ultrasounds mentioned above and the EKG for atrial fibrillation for only $149.
For the month of July the Food Pantry needs canned fruit. Please be generous.
The bulletin for the month of August will be a module that will take approximately 40 minutes to complete. This is a one-time change and September’s bulletin will return to the familiar format. August brings the opening of school and an open month in VIRTUS so all have the opportunity to catch up. The topic of the module will be cyberbullying/bullying. When you log on in August, you will see the module to access and to click on to start. Please pray for a successful, happy and safe 2019-20 school term.
Prayer for vocations from Sister Teddy
Lord, in Your love for the Church, you provide bishops, priests and deacons as shepherds for your people, and you call men and women to leave all things to serve you joyfully in religious life. May those whom you raised up as servants of the Gospel and ministers for your alters show forth dedication and compassion. May those whom you have chosen to serve you as religious provide by their way of life a convincing sign of you kingdom for the Church and the whole world.
