In a world which those who are perceived as different seem to be at greater risk, God invites us to break down the boundaries that separate us from others. As we gather today, let us make this house, God’s house, truly a house of prayer for all people.
It is hard to believe that it is that time of the year again! Mark your calendars! St. Benedict’s annual picnic is Sunday, September 17th. The hours will be 1 PM to 4 PM at the Knights of Columbus Property on Horse Pen Creek Road. Watch for signup sheets in the vestibule after the Masses.
***DSA 2017: “Your every action should be done with love.” 1Cor 16:14, is the theme of the 2017 Diocesan Support Appeal. This week, you should receive a letter or postcard from Bishop Jugis asking for your generous support of the DSA; and next weekend we will view the DSA video, so we can all have an understanding of how the funds given to the DSA impact our diocese. Bishop Jugis asks each of us to prayerfully consider a gift to the DSA as a way of serving Christ through service to thousands of Catholics in Western North Carolina.
