Pope Francis' Intentions


The Pope's universal prayer intention for April 2014 is:
That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.

His intention for evangelization is: That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.


Pulpit Announcements for
April 19th and 20th, 2014

A huge thank you to all who participated in our Lent, Holy Week and Easter liturgies. Father Manuel, our Deacons, Choir, and all our Liturgical Ministers. A special thank you to Kendra Dowlashathi and our RCIA teams. I apologize if I left anyone out. It takes an entire parish to build the Kingdom and celebrate the Mysteries. We are truly spirit-filled with all of our generous parishioners.

We are giving away free Easter Gifts for the 
25th Anniversary of the Diocese of Knoxville. 
The books are on the table in the Gathering Area.  Donations are happily accepted.

Tickets for the annual auction to benefit 
St. Mary’s School are on sale 
after Mass in the Gathering Area.

The parish youth will be doing a Chik Fil A fundraiser on Thursday, April 24th to benefit the Youth's trip to Steubenville, a Catholic retreat to help further the middle and high school's knowledge of our beautiful faith. Just bring the flyer and hand it to the clerk and St Mary's will get a percentage of the sales.

Our annual parish school auction will be next Saturday night. It is a wonderful event and I hope many of our parishioners can support it.

CCW will celebrate the Feast Day of our Patroness, Our Lady of Good Counsel, 
on Saturday, April 26th.  
Plan to join us for the 8:30am Mass.  
After Mass, we will go to Shoney's for breakfast.

Parish newcomers are invited to a reception at the rectory, 
next Sunday the 27th
at 7 PM.

Message From
Father Peter

During Lent, I offer this prayer which is based on Pope Francis' message for Lent this year:

God our Father, you sent your son in weakness and poverty into the world that you love so much. During this season of Lent, we ask that you help us to imitate Jesus by sacrificing ourselves for our brothers and sisters who are materially, morally, and spiritually destitute. Let us see Jesus' face in the poor and the outcast. By serving them, may we love them and serve Christ. Let us be joyful heralds of your Gospel message of mercy and hope. And finally let us not be afraid to feel the hurt through our charity for then we know that it is real. We ask all these things through Our Lady and her son Christ our Lord.

Amen.
