This Week's Stewardship Message:
Jesus' commandment is we love one another, even to the point of laying down our lives. What gifts of myself - my skills and talents, my time and resources - will best demonstrate my love for God's people?
Change of Mass Times:
Daily Mass is canceled from Monday May 21 to Saturday May 26.
Congratulations to five young people from our parish who were confirmed by Bishop Rice on Sunday April 28: Matt D, Thomas H, Catherine H, Justin S & Bailey S.
Will resume soon. For more info, contact the parish office at 996-3301.
Sundays after 9:00am Mass (will resume June 10): Learn more about the Catholic Faith in an interesting way as we watch Bishop Barron's "Catholicism" video series. Each video is about 45 minutes and each week is a different video. No homework, no reading assignments! Come watch one video, and you'll be hooked!
Parish Rummage Sale - June 1 and June 2:
St. Benedicit Parish Rummage Sale will be held on Friday June 1 and Saturday June 2. Set-up day for the sale is Tuesday May 29.

Annual Collection for Subscriptions to "The Mirror", the Diocesan Newspaper:
Please remember to renew your subscription to The Mirror. The annual rate is $14 which can be placed in an envelope marked "Mirror" and dropped in the collection basket. Despite rising postage, paper, and production costs, the subscription rate hasn't changed since 2002.
Diocesan Development Fund (DDF):
The 2018 Diocesan Development Fund appeal will be held the weekend of May 12 and 13, at all Masses. This is the one time in the year that all parishioners are asked to support the ministries conducted and provided to all 84 of the parishes and missions in southern Missouri. Please pray about your participation.
Eucharistic Adoration on Saturdays: Every Saturday 7:30 PM to 11:30 PM. First Saturday of each month 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM to 11:30 PM.
We need volunteers for Eucharistic Adoration. We need at least 2 volunteers for each hour of Adoration. There is a sign-up sheet in the vestibule of the church or call the parish office 573-996-3301 or 573-776-4504. Everyone is encouraged to come and spend quiet time with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament during Eucharistic Adoration. Even if you aren't able to stay for a full hour, please consider time in prayer with the Blessed Sacrament, even if it's only a few moments.

Pray for the Faithful Departed
The month of November is traditionally a time when Catholics pay special remembrance and honor to our beloved dead. Not only during November, but all year long, it is a tradition to pray for the faithful departed:
We give You thanks for all your blessings and grace, Almighty God, and may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
May Your Loved Ones Rest in Peace (link to The Mirror article by Bishop Rice, Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau) -->
