This week I will open a Zoom meeting for parishioners who want to drop in.  It can be a time to ask questions.  I would be interested in receiving feedback on the Seasons of Prayer.  We currently have eleven episodes and I anticipate three more before we close the series.  The Zoom meeting ID is 756 343 6307 and the password HamCathReg.  I will hold one open meeting on Monday, September 21 at 5:30pm and another on Thursday, September 24 at 1pm.  Thursdays are the day that our ACES (Active Christian Enthusiastic Seniors) meet when there is not a pandemic.  If you want to learn more about ACES send an email to mailto:cwgebhart@gmail.com.

This week’s theme for iVoteCatholic is the dignity of work and the rights of workers.  In addition to the weekly thematic teaching and formation, Sara Seligmann from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati will present via Zoom about maintaining civil discourse and discussion as we approach the November election.  She will present on Wednesday, September 30 at 7pm.  Contact mawilliams@stjulie.net if you want to join the Zoom event.

The shift to virtual classes for Sunday morning PREP has happened, but we are glad that our kids are able to learn about our faith still.  I am so appreciative of the work of our catechists and aids.

After some Masses this weekend you will from Hannah Houser.  Please support her vocation to religious life with the Franciscans of Oldenberg.  VISIT the following link to learn more:  http://tls.convio.net/site/TR/Aspirants/General?px=1007804&pg=personal&fr_id=1100

 

Next Sunday we will have a parent meeting for PREP and school students who will be confirmed in March of 2021 (seven months away).  English speakers will meet in the church.  Spanish speakers will meet in the Fenmont.  The meeting is from 10:30-11:30am.  Teachers and catechists will be there, and I will split my time between the two groups.

Enjoy God’s gift of lovely fall weather.

In Christ,

Fr. Rob
