Thank you…to all the amazing volunteers who put on the 2018 Fall Festival!
This summer, over 50,000 Catholic teens across North America are participating in 25 Steubenville Youth Conferences across the United States and Canada. Our parish was represented with a group of 24 youth and 7 chaperones, lead by Fr. O’Brien who all attended the St. Louis Mid-America conference at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri from June 20-22nd. Around 3,000 teens were present at our conference, which included powerful worship music, talks, mass, adoration and confession. Steubenville was an amazing experience; very powerful bonds were formed between our teens and Christ as well as with each other.
Totus Tuus is a Latin phrase that means “totally yours,” a motto given to us by the Pope Saint John Paul II in describing his dedication to Jesus through Mary. For one week during the summer, we provide Catholic children in grades 1-12 a prayer-filled environment that will help them come closer to Christ through His Mother, Mary.
Consider participating with fellow St. Jude parishioners, who are racing for SJCS's own Marsha Krone, who is currently in need of a "match." Learn more and register online at www.bethematchfoundation.org. Meet up at Grant Park, Upper Hutchinson Field, or caravan from St. Jude at 5:45 a.m. the day of the race.
