This past Friday was the final day of Summer Camp at TLC. It is hard to believe that another summer season is completed and that fall is just around the corner. Religious Education classes will be starting soon and we are now registering students for classes. I would like to remind all parents that it is your responsibility to register your students for these classes and to share our faith with the next generation of disciples. The best way for us to pass on our faith is WEEKLY attendance at Sunday Mass and Religious Education classes. Make your plans now since classes begin at the end of September.
Our 3rd Annual Parish Picnic is Sunday, September 18th at Lower Highland Park. This is a wonderful event and opportunity for us to get together for one last summer time celebration before fall comes upon us. We have sign-up sheets available in the atrium for those who want to attend. The Church will provide hotdogs, hamburgers, sausage and drinks. We ask that everyone please bring a dish to share on this special day. We will have fun and games, and the bocci ball tournament has returned!
This Sunday’s readings from Sacred Scripture speak to us about the gift of humility. Humility recognizes that all we have comes to us from God, and that we are called to share these blessings with others. Why not take some time this week to share some of God’s gifts with those who are less fortunate.
Searching for a CYO Moderator
If you or someone you know feels they are being called to work with the youth of our parish and community, please consider becoming our CYO Moderator for St. Anthony's Parish. As said by Pope John Paul II: "The Church approves and encourages sports seeing in it a form of gymnastics of the body and of the spirit, a training for social relations based on respect for others and for one's own person and an element of social cohesion which also fosters friendly relations..." What better way to positively impact the lives our youth by helping them: build self-esteem, have respect for others, understand the value of fair play, foster new friendships and just experience the pure fun of playing basketball or being a cheerleader? If you have benefited from being CYO participant yourself, then you know what we are talking about. Please contact the Parish Office at 754-4333 if you are willing to embrace this wonderful opportunity!!
