Bulletin – 21st Weekend in Ordinary Time

  • Mass on Saturday, 4:30 p.m. August 21, 2021–REMEMBER TO WEAR A MASK! We will continue the precautions as in previous weeks of no-hand-holding during prayers, no physical contact during the “Kiss of Peace,” and communion will be in bread form only. Thank you for taking these precautions for the safety of all.
  • You no longer need to save the date, September 12, 2021. We had planned a special liturgy for this Sunday as a special way to remember Eric Bartleson who died during the height of the pandemic last year when we weren’t meeting physically and couldn’t adequately remember him for the significant part he played in the beginnings of our parish and for his long-time service as president of the board for 10 years. Due to COVID and to the current flare-up of the Delta variant, we will post-pone this special liturgy until November when we traditionally remember those loved ones among us who have died. Hopefully by then, we will be at a safer place to have a Celebration of Life for Eric complete with refreshments! We can also remember in a special way at this time all those who have died from our community. More to come on this as we get closer.


Dear Friends,

The readings this weekend are full of challenge as always! Believing in Jesus, our brother, can never be said to be, “easy”–it calls for our best as he showed us so well!

Come; let’s ponder this mystery once again this week.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
