Adult Faith Formation

adult faith formationAdult Faith Formation is a means of supporting Adults in our parish to become more informed and faithful disciples of our Lord, Jesus Christ. How can we work to serve your needs?

Faith in Action
How does your garden grow?  How fitting it is in the growing season of summer, that we are blessed with the parable of the Sower in this week’s Gospel.  Do you have weeds in your garden?  Thorns? (My husband’s garden curse is thistles!!) How do we cultivate rich soil in the furrows of our souls?  Jesus tells His disciples that it has something to do with “seeing” and “listening.”  Allow the Word of God to truly take root in your mind, heart and soul as you go forth from Mass.

Something to Ponder
We continue our readings from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans this week.  St. Paul says, “we have the firstfruits of the Spirit.”  Can you compare that to the seeds planted in our souls at our Baptism? Take time this week to carefully ponder the lessons presented – How do they speak to you in your own spiritual journey?

Pope Francis wants kids to Care for Creation!

"The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth” Pope Francis wrote in his encyclical on the environment. “In many parts of the planet, the elderly lament that once beautiful landscapes are now covered with rubbish.” 


We can all join Pope Francis in treating the environment better. During this summer’s Vacation Bible School, children ages 4–10 will learn about God’s creation and our role in protecting our planet. VBS will be held 3:00-5:30 p.m. July 24–28 in Father Conen Hall. Cost is $10 per child with a maximum of $25 per family. Scholarships are available. Registration after all Masses on July 8¬9 and 15-16.

 

This year’s theme is EarthKeepers. Join us July 24–July 28 for songs, games, snacks, crafts, Bible stories, and more as we learn about God’s creation and our role in protecting our planet. Click here to view the flyer and the registration form!

HELP THE HOMELESS

St. Lawrence parishioners have always been very generous with their donations. Thank you very much. Now the pain and discomfort the homeless are suffering leads me to ask for help. We are in need of sun protection products: sun blocks, suntan lotion, sunburn medication, sun hats and sunglasses. Also their feet are a problem Imagine having to walk the streets all day in second hand shoes with all of their earthly belongings in the backpack they carry.

 

We are in need of foot products such as: foot powder, foot lotions, corn and bunion pads, athlete foot medication, nail clippers, pumice stones, elastic bandages, ankle supports, shower shoes, flip-flops, white socks.     

 

None of these items need to be new. They are grateful for partial-filled containers and gently used products. Our ladies also appreciate cosmetics, lipsticks, eye shadow, nail polish, etc.     

 

As usual we are always in need of camping equipment and pots and pans with metal handles and bicycles.     

 

There will be 2 green containers in the narthex to collect donations. If you need the items picked up, call Marilyn Waltman   317-550-9745
