FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
May 2, 2021
MONTH OF MAY
The month of May is dedicated to Our Blessed Mother. Let us always seek Mary’s
intercession and pray that we will
remain as close to her son as she did.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee,
Blessed are you among woman and blessed is the
fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us now
and at the hour of our death. Amen.
NO MASS CONFLICT
Beginning May 30, the Sunday Mass at St. Andrew’s in Blue Grass will be at 10:30 am. Their Religious Education classes will begin at 9 am when they resume. Thus, there is no Sunday Mass conflict with Blue Grass and Wilton. Our Mass will remain at 8:30 am with Religious Education following (in the fall) at 9:30 am. Fr. Bud will have plenty of time to get from Wilton to Blue Grass.
Next Sunday is Mother’s Day. All mothers will be given a special blessing at the end of Mass.
PARISH & FINANCE COUNCILS
Meet after Mass today.
We welcome Sutton Dale Bangert, infant son of Nick and Sidney (Lilienthal) Bangert who was baptized last Sunday. Congratulations to his parents and Godparents, Brett and Steph Lilienthal.
Is Sunday, May 23 for St. Mary’s high school graduating seniors. Our high school graduating seniors from Durant are Justine Badtram, Koby Paulsen, and Isabelle Rockow. Ryan Boeding is our graduating senior from Wilton and Nathan Werner is graduating from Assumption High School.
Bishop Zinkula wants to pray for the people he serves in the Diocese of Davenport, by name and by prayer intention. So much so, that he invites people to share their prayer intentions with him on his new prayer webpage https://www.davenportdiocese.org/prayer-requests. Prayers may also be submitted by email at email@example.com or in a printed note mailed to him at Diocese of Davenport, 780 W. Central Park, Davenport, IA 52803.
$362 was collected in our Rice Bowls and sent to Catholic Relief Services. Thanks to all who participated.
Have you thought about joining or forming an Emmaus group? If you desire additional information, have questions, or want to visit about it, contact parishioner Jeremiah Costello at 563-370-2065. We hope you will consider forming or becoming a part of an Emmaus prayer and discussion group.
You people are simply outstanding! Thanks to those who are contributing what they normally do each Sunday in the Offertory basket or by mailing their contribution to St. Mary’s. It is unfortunate that because of the pandemic, not everyone feels comfortable in returning to Sunday Mass. Hopefully this will soon change due to the many vaccinations taking place. If every parishioner continues to contribute we will not get into financial trouble.
Has successfully ended for this year. We are very proud of our parents who saw that their child completed the weekly assignments. Hopefully we will be able to have weekly classes in our classrooms beginning in the fall. Registration will take place the end of August as it has in the past. Watch the bulletin for further information. Sister Cheryl will be our Director of Religious Education next year and Lynette Fagner will be our Coordinator of Religious Education. We are thrilled both of them are returning!
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the program for any adult who is not baptized and would like to join the Catholic Church or is baptized in a non-Catholic church and would like to make a Profession of Faith to become a Catholic. Classes will begin in the Fall. Contact Sister Cheryl or Deacon Dan with any questions.
