To our wonderful St. Agatha Parish!
Thank you for supporting our 30 teens and 14 chaperones on their summer service trip to Warfield, Kentucky. Our six work groups made six homes warmer, safer, and drier and offered friendship, love and hope to the homeowners and built stronger relationships among themselves. The groups experienced the joy of serving others through community living and love and the guidance and support of their chaperones to accomplish the physical labor to complete projects. The love the teens showed their homeowners and families came effortlessly from them.
On Monday, 10 teens from our Young Church Ministry program attended the 7AM Mass in preparation for their trip to Camden, New Jersey, to spend the week at the Romero Center Ministries.
In the words of Archbishop Romero: “We learn to see the face of Christ – the face of Christ that also is the face of a suffering human being, the face of the crucified, the face of the poor, the face of a saint, and the face of every person – and we love each one with the criteria with which we will be judged: ‘I was hungry and you gave me to eat’” (Oscar Romero, Reflections on His Life).
Prayer for Peace Pope John XXIII
Lord Jesus Christ, you are called the Prince of Peace, you are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, "Peace to you," grant us peace.
Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love.
Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace.
Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace.
May all peoples on the earth become as brothers and sisters.
May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.
Although the body has many parts, it is one body. We, though many, are one body in Christ. We are the Church. Not a building. Not the staff of the parish, not the hierarchy alone --- all of us together are Church and all of us must respond to the Holy Spirit and build the Kingdom of God. Give some thought and prayer to trying one of the parish ministries if you are not involved already. Click here for a list of ministries. It will benefit you, it will benefit us as a community and it will spread the Good News.
