This Week's Stewardship Message:
May our faithful stewardship be a sign to others that we, like the Ephesians in today's second reading, have laid aside our former way of life and acquired a "fresh, spiritual way of thinking" in Christ.
We offer our condolences and sympathy to the family of parishioner Marge Broyles. May she rest in the peace of Christ.

Catechist Workshop for Certification: One of the areas we have been hoping to focus on for our parish is the certification of catechists. The Diocese is now sponsoring workshops for this purpose as well as a support link for Catechists. Sacred Heart Church in Poplar Bluff will be hosting a workshop on Sunday, September 16 from 1-4pm, which is Catechetical Sunday, beginning with a lunch at McDevitt Hall at 12:00 noon (after 11:00am Mass). Catechists, please mark this day on your calendar as we begin thinking about the new year. Contact Kim Brayman at firstname.lastname@example.org in the Diocesan Office of Evangelization and Catechesis to let her know you plan to attend.
