Thank you, Susan Onderdonk, for bringing us the gift of music today while Brad is on vacation. 


Today’s loose offering goes to Catherine’s discretionary fund, which she uses to help people in need in this area.  Thanks to all who so generously gave to the discretionary fund last month. 


This Sunday is Shrine Mont Sunday with a special presentation on the camps at the announcements.


Happy Birthday Thom Guthrie (Aug. 13), Boyd Wisdom (Aug.18).

Our version of Vacation Bible School is this week!  Simple snack supper each night at 6PM, Monday through Thursday, followed by learning for all from 6:30 to 7:30.  Crafts, fun and learning for the children.  Discussion group on Galatians for adults.  The conclusion for Vacation Bible School will be the 8th Community Dinner, Aug. 16, 6pm in the Parish House.

Thursday, August 15 is one of the most important feast days of the year, the Feast Day of St. Mary the Virgin.  “Later devotion has claimed many things for Mary which cannot be proved from Holy Scripture. What we can believe is that one who stood in so intimate a relationship with the incarnate Son of God on Earth must, of all the human race, have a place of highest honor in the eternal life of God" – Lesser Feasts and Fasts, 2003
