My Dear People,

This Sunday we are celebrating the Rite of Sending for all of our Confirmation candidates. Forty-four of our young people have studied their faith in preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. They have completed 30 hours of service work in our community. They have attended a retreat. Today, we proclaim them ready to gather with neighboring parishes and our bishop for the reception of the sacrament on October on October 2 at the Cathedral. To celebrate this milestone they will be sharing together in a "Confirmation Brunch" after the 11:30 am mass. Keep them and your families in prayer as we approach their confirmation.

Please note the second of our "drop in" inquiry sessions for the RCIA at 7:00 pm on Tuesday Sep. 23. These sessions are open to anyone who has questions or is curious about Catholicism. Out of this we will form our RCIA program for the forthcoming year. Consider inviting someone to the gathering!

At St. Rose final plans have come together for the Fall Festival on September 26 & 27. We hope that the new time for the celebration will serve as a catalyst for future growth of the festival. Many people have stepped forward in recent weeks to become involved. Consider doing so yourself. Most of all make plans to come and share in the excitement and the fellowship. When we pay forward what we have received, we always find our blessings multiplied many times over. Check out the bulletin and other fliers for details on the Fall Festival at St. Rose

Many thanks to all who helped with the presentation of the Shroud of Turin Exhibit at Holy Trinity.

You have probably noticed the "Become A Boy Scout" signs around the church at St. Rose. Scouting is a great program filled with healthy activities for our young people. Youth of both Holy Trinity and St. Rose should consider joining the Boy Scouts or the Girl Scouts!

May God Bless You!    Fr. Steve
