Holy Angels invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ. You will learn what it takes to follow him. You will experience the joy of divine friendship, and you will see how God— and only God—can satisfy the deepest desires of your heart.
Participants of Follow Me will receive this workbook and will meet for 8 weeks to view an engaging video presentation followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship. This Bible Study will guide you through the Gospel of John. Dr. Sri will explain how Christ’s encounters with his disciples, the Samaritan woman, the man born blind, and others, are examples of how he lovingly and persistently calls each of us to a more intimate and life-changing relationship with him.
We will begin Follow Me on Thursday, September 28th at 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the Church Hall (basement). For more information or to register for the study, see the Parish Bulletin, Bulletin Board at the Church, or e-mail your name/phone#/email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost is $15 per person.
“Our hearts and prayers go out to the families that have been directly impacted by the disasters wrought by Hurricane Harvey.”
The USCCB has requested an emergency collection in response from all the Dioceses in the U.S. This emergency collection will support the humanitarian and recovery efforts of Catholic Charities USA to provide immediate emergency needs for water, food, shelter and medical care and assist in the long-term recovery from the disaster. Funds will also be used to provide pastoral and rebuilding support to impacted dioceses through the USCCB. Due to the urgency of the situation, Holy Angels Parish will have a 2nd collection on Saturday September 2nd and Sunday September 3rd.
Other organizations in our community are also collecting items to be delivered to those affected. Some of the items they are looking for are: bottled water, diapers, baby wipes, sanitizing wipes, toilet paper, gift cards, clothing and shoes. If you would like to donate some of these items, you may drop them off at the parish office and we’ll make sure they are received by these organizations. We count on your support and prayers!
