SAINT of the week

THIS COULD BE YOU

As we enter into a new parish "catechetical" year, we are endeavoring this year to grow in knowledge and love of the saints.  This will truly be a year to engage and be engaged by the "cloud of witnesses" who are the women and men of faith who surround us.  There will be a variety of opportunities this year to learn from their lives and grow closer to them in prayer.  Each week, there will be a "Saint of the Week".  There will be a short video with various members of our parish staff introducing us to these saints.  A prayer will be provided as well to allow you and your family to pray along at home with the saints.  A new saint will be noted each Sunday, and continue for the following week.  Keep your eye on the bulletin, in the special section entitled "This Could be You", and check back here for the weekly video.  Our library will also have materials available to check out about these saints.  As Pope John Paul II said, "When you are looking to build your faith, look to the saints!".
