HOW TO CONTRIBUTE Checks should be made payable to “St. Kateri Tekakwitha-Latin Mass Community” OR for short, “SKT-LMC”. If you do not have pre-printed envelopes, contributions can be placed in the blue envelopes OR loose in the collection baskets. Contributions deposited in envelopes from neighboring parishes will be returned to those home parishes and will not be credited to SKT-LMC. SKT-LMC envelopes deposited in neighboring parish collections will be returned and credited to us. Please be aware that, even though the SKT-LMC operates financially under ST. KATERI PARISH, the SKT-LMC does not subsidize ST. KATERI PARISH, and ST.KATERI PARISH does not subsidize the SKT-LMC. We must rely on our own monetary income to support our activities and facilities.
IF YOU HAVE FOUND A SPIRITUAL HOME in our Latin Mass Community here at St. Thomas’, please consider registering with us. Use the census forms found at the entrance door tables. On the top write in clear letters “LMC”. Place form in the collection basket. Welcome!
WE DO NEED VOLUNTEERS to help maintain our facilities, especially in the area of church and parish center cleaning. We need YOU! Please email email@example.com or call 467-8747. Enough volunteers will enable us to have rotating teams.
CHURCH FLOWERS. Interested in helping once a month with flowers for the church? Please contact Ginny Maurer at 368-8869.
HAVE YOU SEEN OUR WEBSITE? Check it out at www.skt-lmc.org. Special thanks to Ben Anderson, Jason Herforth, and Jonathan Lane. Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any suggestions to add, contact email@example.com.
THE EUCHARISTIC ADORATION CHAPEL, adjacent to the Parish Center must continue to be a very important powerhouse of prayer for us and for people in our area. Hours of adoration are on Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM to 10 PM (11 PM on Tuesday and Friday). WE NEED MORE ADORERS TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY HOUR IS COVERED. Please consider signing up for an hour or being on the substitute list. Contact Marie O’Leary at 467-1982.
CASE TRAINING The Diocese of Rochester requires volunteers who work with children, youth or vulnerable adults to participate in Creating a Safe Environment (CASE) training. If you plan to volunteer for a ministry that involves working with children, youth or vulnerable adults, you will need to take the class on-line from your home computer or attend a training session. Please call or email Kathy Beauchamp at 484-1810 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions.
If you would prefer classroom training rather than on-line training, classes will be held at SKT @St. Cecilia’s on Wed Sept 9th 11am and Sat Sept 12th at 11am. Please contact Lena Levecchi Phone: (585) 544-8889 x2102 E-mail: email@example.com.
DRESS CODE in CHURCH remains in effect for late summer days. Please dress respectfully, neatly and modestly when attending Holy Mass, thus showing reverence for God and neighbor. Short pants or short skirts, tank tops or halter tops, strapless outfits, tight-fitting and revealing outfits are not appropriate. THANK YOU, in advance, for your courtesy and cooperation.
FAITH FORMATION We are excited to announce that our Faith Formation (CCD) classes will begin Sunday, September 27th in the Parish Center classrooms (upstairs) from 10:10 to 11:05 AM. In order to be fully prepared, we are asking that ALL PARENTS who expect their children to attend Faith Formation and/or Sacramental Preparation classes attend an “OPEN HOUSE” on Sunday, September 20th in the Parish Center at 10:10 AM. These parents will have an opportunity to see the classrooms, meet the staff, and gain insight into the curriculum we have been developing. Children, too, are more than welcome to attend the Open House.
If you have any questions OR if you have children to enroll in the program (there’s still time), please email our Faith Formation Coordinator, Andy Follaco, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Community is most grateful that Andrew has stepped up to take on this important role in coordinating this program which is so crucial to our church family life. Please pray for him and for all the other volunteers who will be involved in “forming the faith” of our young people. Thank you!
EVANGELIZATION “The SKT-LMC is in the process of forming a committee for the purpose of evangelization. It is our expectation that this committee will play a significant role in expanding our community’s membership while performing its essential function of bringing souls into the Church. Anyone who is interested in serving on this committee should contact either Denise Flanigen at 467-8747(email@example.com) or Gene Michael at 690-9145 (firstname.lastname@example.org).”
COFFEE HOURS are not being held this month. They will resume next week on September 6th.
