This summer, July 11 through July 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., St. Agatha Parish will be sponsoring
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL for the children of the Parish who will be entering grades 1 to 5 in September, 2016.
Theme: Parachute with the Angels
The first grade daisy troop invited Fr. Makos to a meeting recently to help him get over his fear of bees Which he mentioned recently in a sermon.) Michelle and Seb from Milton's Billion Backyard Bee Project came & spoke about being bee keepers. Seb is a teenager and it was great for the girls to learn from someone so young. Fr. Makos was a trooper and seemed to enjoy the meeting!
STEUBENVILLE YOUTH CONFERENCE 2016
One of St. Augustine’s most famous quotes is, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in you, O Lord.” These words often describe the spiritual angst that teenagers experience throughout their high school years. Every teen has the desire to achieve something great and to be someone great. We see this desire played out on social media daily. At a Steubenville Conference, teens will learn what it takes to be great in this life. Teens will come to experience a relationship with Christ that can radically transform everything in their life. The goal of every Steubenville Conference is for teens to open their hearts to Jesus Christ who desires their lives to be fulfilling, exciting, and joyful!
Steubenville Youth Conference hosts 23 conferences, each hosting between 2,500 to 5,000 teens!!! Do the math! This conference just a few short years ago was a heavy player in my own encounter with Jesus Christ. I will be taking a group of 25 teens to Steubenville East - July 15th-17th, 2016. If you want to take this chance to find out what your life is all about and how you were made for greatness, don’t let this opportunity pass.
Call or email me in the faith formation office. Thank you!

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.
Whether you were baptized Catholic as a child or you’ve
only recently decided to see what the Catholic Church is
about, we are glad you are here.
