Hello everyone!
We are preparing for our “Scuba” themed Vacation Bible School the week of June 24th-28th. We will be having a volunteer meeting for anyone who is helping or wishes to help out on June 12th at 10am. If you are interested in being a volunteer just show up! *All adults will be required to have a current Protecting God’s Children certificate.

Take Time to Chat – How do you think Jesus speaking in parables may have helped people understand his message? Share an experience of people turning against you because of your faith. If you don’t have a personal experience, reflect on how you could help someone in that situation. What does it mean to do the will of God? Who can help you? What is the English translation of “Viva Cristo Rey”? What are some things you can do to put your life under the kingship of Jesus Christ?

Liturgy Link – The 2nd Reading is usually from a letter to a community in the early Church. Before the reading is proclaimed, the lector announces who wrote the letter and the community for which it was written. Who wrote today’s letter? Which community was it written for?

Family Prayer – Prayer Journaling- Sometimes it takes time to understand the meaning of the Gospel. Journaling is a great way to unpack the words and talk to God.

Family Challenge – Plan a visit to a family member or friend who is lonely. Bring flowers or baked goods to brighten their day.

Fun Facts – June 11th is National Corn on the Cob Day! What is your favorite kind of corn?
