I want to remember my experiences at Notre Dame Vision

I want to remember all the friends that I made from all over the country, from California to Canada. I also want to remember all the lessons I got out of the talks and the stories of grace. They had guest speakers come in and talk about God but also about life, and things that happen in life. I’ve gotten to take away so many lessons. I will also never forget the welcoming community and all my friends. I will cherish the memories I made forever

Living your faith after Confirmation

We commissioned our newest Eucharistic minister this past Sunday at the 10:300 Mass. During the commissioning we were reminded of the importance of receiving the Eucharist and being willing to bring the Body of Christ to others. Yianni chose to serve as a Eucharistic Minister after he received the sacrament of Confirmation in March. The next formation meeting to serve as a Eucharistic Minister is on May 11th after the 5:00 Mass. Email kmcmillan@stbenedict.com if you would like to attend.

Listening is hard work.

“Listening”, and “loving” are words of action. They don’t seem like they should be considered action words because the action both words require, is subtle. They aren’t the kind of verbs that cause us to perspire or be short of breath but, they certainly do require being actively engaged in a relationship where communication is involved.

It takes a Parish...

Last Sunday, November 18th, the parish of St Benedict headed over to St Paul’s House on California to help do a little holiday decorating for the people who live there. It was such a joy to participate in such a parish wide effort. The Holy Name Society offered to purchase the tree for decorating. The school children creatively made ornaments from recycled materials. There were enough ornaments to decorate 3 trees.

A group of about 10 teens from Youth Ministry and a few of their parents joined in the decorating as did several ladies and families, from the parish. When the residents came in to help it became a real party with cookies, hot chocolate and some absolutely delightful conversation…
