A MESSAGE FROM FR. ED...
The eleven day pilgrimage to the WYD 2016 in Poland was a very rewarding experience for me. There are a lot of amazing moments during this time that I want to share with our parishioners. I will share these stories in sections over
the next few weeks.

Stewards Seek Heavenly Treasure
"For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be." - LUKE 12:34
Jesus encourages His Stewards to build up our treasure in heaven. The world encourages us to build up our treasure in real estate, investments, and material goods. How much time are you investing in building up a worldly treasure? How much time are you investing in building up a heavenly treasure? To invest more time in the things of heaven, you must let go of some of the things of this world.
Our Religious Education office is open during the summer. If there are any families that need to "catch up" or may have questions about sacraments for school age children or teenagers summertime classes can be arranged. Also,
adults with questions about RCIA or sacraments are encouraged to call. Please call Monica Smith at 661-9489. If no answer, please do leave a message.
CONFIRMATION CLASSES FOR ADULTS
If you are 18 or older and did not complete your Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation) we are offering classes beginning in June.
Confirmation will be celebrated October 25, 2016. For further information and details please contact Monica Smith at 661-9489.
As you are aware, we have initiated a parish synod here at Mary, Queen of All Saints. A synod is an assembly of church leaders gathered to address important issues. In our case, it is the pressing issue of weekend Mass attendance, a problem facing Churches around the country.
We meet every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month for 30 minutes of prayer, song and meditation in church, and then move to the hall for one hour of breakout dialogue sessions. All members of our parish organizations are urged to attend, and any interested parishioner is also welcome to participate. If you do not belong to a parish organization and wish to participate, please call the rectory.
The objective of this phase of the parish synod is to pray to the Holy Spirit for guidance and to collaborate as an entire parish through sincere dialogue in order to generate a plan of action.
I will keep you abreast of all developments, and reports about the synod will be posted in the bulletin. Please pray for the blessings of God upon our synod and our parish.
FORMED is a digital gateway to the best Catholic content, teachers and presenters, accessible anywhere at anytime on most smartphones, tablets and computers, for catechetical training, study groups or personal growth.

NEED SACRAMENTS OR INTERESTED IN THE CATHOLIC FAITH?
Perhaps you have been coming to Mass with a relative or friend and have considered becoming Catholic. Perhaps you did not receive all of your Sacraments as a child in the normal course. Perhaps you know someone like this that is spiritually searching? We have just the right program for you! It is called the Rite of Christian for Adults (R.C.I.A.).
Any adult can investigate and proceed to prepare for the reception of the Sacraments in the Catholic Church in a personal and relaxed manner through this program. Please call the rectory for more information.

Confessions in both English and Spanish are offered Saturdays, after the 4:30pm Mass until the 6:30pm Mass and again after the 6:30pm. Confessions are also offered in English as usual from 3:30pm until 4:30pm Mass.
