Greetings from QHR!
This is the 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time
for the Sunday Readings
for audio readings
"[Jesus'] heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd." These words from Sunday's Gospel speak to the heart of every ministry we undertake as Jesus' disciples. Jesus wishes to place in us
tender heart of compassion, toward all those who have little guidance in their lives.
As secular values reign supreme in our world today, the thirst for truth also becomes greater. As "shepherds in the Shepherd", our testimony of belonging in Christ, of supportive Church community, is all the more necessary.
Do the people around me know that first and foremost they are beloved children of God, receiving their identity from Him? How can we communicate this essential truth to those who are trying to establish themselves in truth, and do so with a shepherd's heart?
As noted in the bulletin, starting August 1, we will celebrate Mass on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for those who cannot attend regular morning weekday Mass. Confession will be offered at 5:00 pm.
The 6:30 PM Monday evening Family Rosary will be held in the QHR Cemetery during the summer months into the fall, weather permitting, by the Holy Family Monument. Please bring your yard chair for your comfort & your soft drink, tea, or water. Children are welcome. We will pray, and have good conversation. Mary will join us as we get acquainted.!
Auction planning is well underway, and we are accepting donations and sponsorships now!
Keep donations in mind when you are traveling this summer or when you are visiting your favorite local shops
