As we prepare to share a pastor with St. John Fisher Church, Newtown, Bishop Binzer invites parishioners from both parishes to learn about the plan to share a pastor with both parishes. All are invited to come to St. John Fisher Church on Thursday, January 19 at 7:00 p.m.
Just a reminder that if we close St. Veronica School (when West Clermont District closes), we do not have 7:30 a.m. Mass. The rationale is that if it is too dangerous to transport children on the roads, the safety of parishioners coming to morning Mass is also compromised. By watching TV, or going on line to one of the local TV stations you are able to see if West Clermont has called off school. We also try to get word out on this site as soon as we get word that school is cancelled. Thanks for your understanding in making parishioner safety a priority.
Renewal through Outreach
St. Veronica Gives Back! (March 5-12, 2017)
Sign up online using this link: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/409054AAAA62FA3FB6-renewal
From March 5 through March 12, all parishioners are invited to join together in a unique renewal opportunity.
Renewal is meant to stir the flame of the Holy Spirit in all of us, empowering us to live, teach and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others with new energy and enthusiasm. The opportunity to practice this Renewal through active involvement with those disadvantaged in our neighborhoods and community is an exciting step for St. Veronica.
How will it work?
Parishioners will come together on Sunday, March 5 to pray and reflect on the call to service in our community. Then we will be sent forth to help at one of several social service agencies in the Cincinnati area on a day the following week. Finally, we will come back together the following Sunday, March 12, to share and reflect more deeply on the encounters we’ve had and how we can bring that spirit with us beyond the week.
Who can participate?
Families, individuals, groups and parishioners of all ages are invited to participate and grow together as a parish. The outreach opportunities will all be tailored to meet the wide range of needs and abilities in our parish. SEE THE LINK BY CLICKING ON THE HEADLINE
Sign up in January!
Starting in January, you’ll be able to sign up for a specific outreach opportunity with one of the groups below. For now, take a look at the list and start thinking about where you’d like to get involved. Then keep an eye out for an email announcing when signups begin.
But remember – this list is just a start! If you have ideas for outreach on your own, or want to organize an event or group to help your community in other ways this week – go for it!
Read Pope Francis' much talked about Apostolic Exhortation, "The Joy of Love." This encouraging document sets the direction for Catholics to come to a deeper appreciation of God's love for them, and the challenge to share that love with others.
