19th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

August 9, 2020

PAPER PRODUCTS & CANNED ITEMS

Hopefully we can improve with our donations of paper products and non-perishable food products for the Wilton-Durant Food Pantry.  We have three Sundays left so let’s have every parishioner participate!  As in previous years, we will take up a special monetary collection for the support of the Food Pantry on August 30, the last Sunday of the month.  Let’s fill our Gathering Area with items!  St. Mary’s always comes through when asked. 

LAY MINISTRY SCHEDULE

Is available in the Gathering Area and on our Website.  The schedule begins August 16 and continues through September 27.  Thanks to Otto Geering for putting together the schedule.

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION

Father is available to hear Confessions before and after Mass on Sunday.   

A FEW REMINDERS

Please wear a mask and bring your own hand sanitizer when you come to Mass.  If you are unable to come on Sundays because of extreme health or age concerns, please watch a broadcast of the Mass on TV and we ask that you mail your contribution to St. Mary’s.  Collection baskets for those who are coming to Mass are by the Holy Water Font and on a table in the Parish Hall.  The entire Church, Gathering Area, door handles, bathrooms & Parish Hall are sanitized after every Mass.

ASSUMPTION HOLY DAY

Is this Saturday, August 15.  Because it is on a Saturday this year, all Catholics are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass on the Holy Day. 

MEETING 

The Parish & Finance Councils and the Ladies Society Officers will meet after Mass next Sunday, Aug. 16.  The meeting will be held in the Parish Hall with distancing requirements observed.  Sister Cheryl will be at the meeting to talk about Religious Ed for this coming year. 

ST. MARY’S WEBSITE

Do you use it to view the current bulletin if you are unable to attend Mass?  Do you use it for the Lay Ministry Schedule?   Our website address is always on the front cover of the bulletin.  It is www.stmarywilton.org    

 

HELP FOR CLOTHES CLOSET

We are still in need of one more volunteer to help at the Closet from 9am-Noon on Saturday, August 15.  Please see Wanda Einfeldt or Father Steinle.

 

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Registration will take place on August 30, Sept. 6 & Sept. 13 immediately following Mass.  The fees are the same as the last couple of years; $40 per child, $35 for three or more children. The fees are to be paid at the time of registration.  This figures out to be $1.74 per class.  The fee covers the cost of the textbook and materials.  Religious Ed this year will be for grades Kindergarten – 9 (not Preschool).  As Sister Cheryl will explain to parents, we must follow all Diocesan regulations. 

THINKING ABOUT BECOMING A CATHOLIC

New classes start soon after Labor Day.  These classes are for anyone who has never been baptized, baptized in another Christian religion or baptized a Catholic but still needs First Communion and/or Confirmation.  If you are an adult or a student in the 11th grade or older, these classes are for you!  Contact Father Steinle at steinled@diodav.org or call 319.572.6550.  These are inquiry classes to help  you in making your decision to become a Catholic or receive the Sacraments.

 

AUGUST EXTRA ENVELOPES 

St. Mary’s Cemetery Donation, Feast of the Assumption of Mary and our Church Building Fund are the extra envelopes for August.  Thank you for being generous to these special collections.
