Giving Thanks for Giving Tree Gifts

A warm thank you to all who participated in the Giving Tree Gift requests this season in support of Saint Olaf Samaritan Ministry. The kindness and generosity shown by parish members, visitors, families and workplace groups is greatly appreciated. Samaritan Ministry volunteers and staff begin each day of service in prayer and reflection. We always remember our donors and benefactors in a particular way because we could not carryout this mission without you. May the light of Christ shared in this sacred season be carried throughout the whole year. Many thanks!

What is a Synod? What is the purpose?

“A Synod is a formal representative assembly designed to help a bishop in his shepherding of the local Church.”
The purpose is “to discern and establish clear pastoral priorities in a way that will both promote greater unity and lead us to a more vigorous proclamation of Jesus’ good news.”

Come Holy Spirit
Make our ears to hear
Make our eyes to see
Make our mouths to speak
Make our hearts to seek
Make our hands to reach out
And touch the world with your love.

Mary, Mother of the Church,
Pray for us.
