L'ARCHE DISCERNMENT MEETING
Jean Vanier, the founder of L'Arche and Communities of Faith and Light, passed away last month at the age of 90. In his memory, and following up on the fruitful work towards inclusivity initiated by our Potluck for People of All Abilities last Lent, we are organizing a discernment meeting for interested parishioners who may want to help start either a Community of Faith and Light, a L'Arche community, or both. This initial discernment meeting will be held on Thursday, July 11, 7 PM in the Activity Room. If you are interested in participating, please contact Tim Severyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Archdiocese of Cincinnati Office for Respect Life Ministries will be hosting a Sensory-Friendly Mass at St. Helen’s Church in Dayton on Sunday, June 23 at 3:00 PM. Bishop Binzer will be presiding, and all are welcome to attend. A special invitation is extended to any person with sensory issues. This Mass will include: softer music, dimmer lighting, and pictorial resources for those with special needs. Families are encouraged to bring materials that can assist with comfort during the liturgy: noise cancelling headphones, wiggle seats, fidgets, etc. Contact Noelle Collis-DeVito with any questions at email@example.com or (937)281-4128.
MEDICINE BOTTLES REMINDER
A reminder that we have an ongoing collection of medicine bottles for Matthew 25 Ministries in the narthex near the office doors. Please note, they will only accept the orange and clear bottles, not other colors, and they can only re-use them if they have caps on and ALL of the glue from the label removed. You might try using a hair dryer or nail polish remover for this - at least one parishioner has reported each of these work! Questions, contact our Director of Social Mission, Tim Severyn at firstname.lastname@example.org
