If you are new to the area or have recently begun attending Masses at Saint Colman of Cloyne, please contact the parish office to register. If you have school-aged children, ask about getting them registered in Saint Colman's Religious Education program.
If you are not Catholic, or if you would like to know more about the Catholic Faith, please join us Tuesday afternoons at 4 p.m. in the Parish Center Conference Room for RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults).
The December senior lunch will be at noon on Wednesday, December 11. Call the Parish Office by end-of-day on Monday, December 9 to let us know you are coming. We will be having scalloped potatoes with ham this month. A $2.50 donation is suggested.
If you would like to give a poinsettia in memory or in honor of someone, please include $10 per person in the envelope provided in your monthly packet or one of your own, and indicate the name of the one(s) you wish to be remembered. The names for donated poinsettias will be printed in the bulletin on the Fourth Sunday of Advent.
When was the last time you had a Mass offered? Mass may be offered in thanksgiving, in honor of a favorite saint, or to celebrate an anniversary or birthday of a living family member, friend or loved one. When was the last time you remembered a deceased loved one with Mass offered in their memory, and for the repose of their soul? These are truly Catholic practices which acknowledge the efficacy of the Mass as the greatest of all prayers and as a participation in the sacrifice of Christ on the cross for the salvation of the world. Consider giving a gift which has eternal effect. Have Mass offered. We have an immediate need for daily Mass intentions.
The Finance Committee has decided to start a scholarship fund for Religious Education to enable our children to participate in any opportunity regardless of ability to pay. This fund would help pay PSR tuition as well as to help pay fees associated with youth rallies or other field trip events. The National Catholic Youth Conference will be this November, and will cost each attendee in excess of $500. This opportunity is too important to miss due to lack of financial resources. Please consider donating to this important fund. We will have a special collection periodically, but if you would like to give now, please mark your check or envelope "Scholarship Fund" and place it in the offering basket, or mail it to or bring it in to the parish office. Thank you for your support of our youth!
Despite the declaration from local news sources that everything has been worked out between people of faith, those who believe in the First Amendment and the administration's mandates affecting certain aspects of health care, it has not. Please visit the USCCB website to remain informed. Do not rely on popular media alone. Our bishops continue to encourage us to write and call our representatives. There is a sample letter available on the website – it may also be emailed, but phone calls and letters are more effective.
If you click here and type in your zip code, it will give you information on how to contact your representative. If you click here, you will be given the addresses, phone numbers, and emails of our senators. Please take part in this effort.
