LITURGY OF THE WEEK
RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS The R.C.I.A. will resume in the fall. We encourage parishioners to volunteer as sponsors and for hospitality. If you know of anyone interested in the R.C.I.A, or for more information, please call the Parish Office at 601 924-6344.
PARISH SCHOOL OF RELIGION will hold registration after all Masses on the weekends of August 18th and 25th. All children in the parish are expected to regularly participate in the program for a two year period as a partial requirement for receiving the sacraments. Parents are responsible to ensure their children and teenage youth participate in the program.
PROTECTION OF CHILDREN The Diocese of Jackson is committed to ensuring that no one being served by the church is at risk of sexual abuse or exploitation by clergy, religious or lay church personnel. The spiritual well-being of all the victims, their families and others in the community is of particular concern to the church. In accordance with our policy, all victims are offered counseling and pastoral care. Anyone who has been a victim of abuse or exploitation and has not yet reported it is encouraged to do so. We encourage any victim to contact Valerie McClellan, Victims Assistance Coordinator at 601-326-3728. (For more information about diocesan policies and procedures visit our website at www.jacksondiocese.org
WE WELCOME all the families/individuals that have joined our parish over the summer months. If you have not filled out a registration form we encourage you to do so. If you have not received your contribution envelopes please call the parish office.
HOSPITAL VISITATION Please notify the Parish Office if you or a member of your family is in one of the local hospitals. Most local hospitals have a policy that they do not volunteer the names of people who are in the hospital unless they are already known to the priest or volunteer visiting. So please let us know if you or a member of your family is hospitalized.
ALTAR SOCIETY parishioners wishing to put flowers at the Altar in memory of a loved one should contact Sharon Hopkins at 601-668-7216 or firstname.lastname@example.org
MASS ETIQUETTE: Dress Nice. The way you dress expresses reverence not only for others, but yourself. Shorts, flip flops and t-shirts are for the beach, not God's house.
MID-YEAR CONTRIBUTION STATEMENTS were mailed this week. If you did not receive a statement or if you have any questions you may contact Julie Harkins at the Church office. Parishioners are encouraged to use their envelopes for recording purposes. If you have not received your envelopes, contact the parish office. We thank you for your generosity.
