This weekend we are having elections for the parish council, please take some time to read about the candidates and place your vote. We hope to begin a focused discussion on our Archbishop’s pastoral letter of 2018, “We are One in Christ” and looking for ways we can adapt our ministries to offer more evangelization to the local community. Our meeting will be this Tuesday August 25th at 7:00pm.
Every parish is allowed to celebrate the feast day of their patron on the weekend before or after the day it is celebrated in the Roman Calendar. As you may have guessed Our Lady of Greenwood is not really the name of our parish we are actually under the patronage of Our Lady of the Rosary which is celebrated on October 7th. This year we are going to celebrate the feast with a rosary procession and a small parish mission that will begin on the weekend of the 3rd and 4th of October with Mass, prayer, adoration, and spiritual reflections scheduled for Sunday night – Wednesday. The focus will be a prayerful look at the Archbishop’s letter and some consideration of the challenges it offers to our parish. Hope you will consider attending, we will also try to share the topics via our YouTube channel and Facebook.
Please continue to keep our parish and the world in prayer. This week I would suggest that you help us by praying the rosary every day for our community. Ask Mary to guide us to be the parish her Son is calling us to be.
