St. Andrew Bulletin -  July 16, 2017


As for me, in justice I shall behold your face; I shall be filled with the vision of your glory.  Cf. Psalm 17 (16):15

 

DAILY MASS SCHEDULE:  11:00 a.m. Monday, Thursday, and Friday.

 

Please keep in your prayers five of our children who are in summer classes for First Reconciliation/First Communion.  These children will celebrate their First Reconciliations in early August and their First Communions sometime in the fall.

 

This week, please keep Angel Cedillo in your prayers as this Friday, July 21, he will be undergoing laser surgery for the bleeding he is experiencing in his brain.  While the doctors are hopeful this procedure will correct this serious problem, if it does not, he will be undergoing brain surgery at a later date.

 

Following today’s Mass, there will be a meeting of St. Andrew’s Women’s Guild in the Education Room.  Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend to learn more about what our Guild does for our church, our Parish, and the general community.

 

St. Andrew’s Guild is sponsoring a mid-summer raffle.  Please take a look at the beautiful prize you could win and buy a ticket (or two or three)!!

 

Update on the Rectory Project:  We are just days away from placing the order for our Parish’s new rectory.  Once we have received approval for the final floor plan from Monsignor Mo West at the Diocese, we can complete the paperwork to place the order.  Please remember that the goal is to pay for this project in full so that the Parish does not have to carry a loan or mortgage.  For those who have been considering making a donation, please do so now and remember that we cannot do this without your prayers and financial support.

 

Summer Food Program:  Madison County experiences a large number of families who are food-poor, which means children are going hungry - especially during the summer months while school is out.  If anyone knows families with children 18 years of age and younger, please let them know that free meals are being served Monday through Friday, 12:00 p.m. at Ivy Ridge Apartments, Hensley Trailer Park and Mars Hill Pool (all in the Mars Hill area) and Walnut Creek Apartments and French Broad Circle Apartments, both in Marshall.

 

***************

It is only the hand that is open to give that is open to receive. God cannot give us what we refuse to take and God cannot give to us when our hands and hearts cling to things.
