The Saint Agatha Youth Ministry program continues to accomplish its mission of discipleship and evangelization through an exciting collection of programs. Every Sunday evening the high school group meets to address topics ranging from scripture and prayer, to current issues, to putting faith into action and men’s and women’s formation. On the third Saturday of each month, the middle school group meets to address similar topics of faith formation and to send families on mission. For more information, contact Kristin Collura at 488-6149, ext. 117.
In “The Mystery of God: Who God Is and Why He Matters,” Fr. Barron reaches into our rich intellectual tradition to teach us how to respond. Using the insights of St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas and Pope Benedict XVI, he uncovers a clear yet sophisticated understanding of what we mean by “God.” The six-week series will be offered on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m. and Thursday mornings from 9:30-11 a.m. The session will begin Wednesday, October 14 through November 19.

You can purchase flowers in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone. Simply call the parish office to request flowers for a particular weekend. There can be two arrangements per weekend. A parishioner who is a florist will provide and deliver the flowers on Saturday afternoon. Please make your request at least two weeks in advance so that we can announce in the bulletin the name of the donor as well as the name of the person being remembered. Requests for a particular date are honored on a first come-first served basis. However, it is the donation that guarantees a requested date and bulletin announcement. Flowers cost $50 per arrangement.
Did you know that we collect non-perishable food for the poor on the third weekend of every month? Place donations by the baskets near the three entrances. Our St. Vincent de Paul Society delivers the food to a local food pantry. Thank you for remembering that hunger is a year-round problem.
Please do not assume you are registered just because you attend Mass here. If you have not called the rectory office, or stopped in, and are not receiving envelopes (unless you chose EFT on your Stewardship Card) we do not have a record of you. Without a record we will be unable to help you when you want to get married or have a child baptized, are ill or in the hospital, or if you are asked to act as a Sponsor or be a Godparent. To be a Sponsor or Godparent, you must have a note from us stating that you are a practicing Catholic, which we cannot issue without a record of your membership. Call the rectory, 488-6149 to register.
Please remember that all items for the pamphlet racks need to have approval from the rectory office before being posted. We appreciate your cooperation.
