Checking the interest level for parishioners that hike/walk/run/ruck in our Arkansas natural areas. [Pinnacles, Petit Jean, Winona, Lake Sylvia, Lake Catherine, Sunset Trail, Ouachita Trail, Magazine, Nebo.] Would like to plan a few local group events for our church family. Message me, email [email protected], or catch me after mass. (Will forward details to church office once an interest is established.)
If anyone is interested in helping to support a Christmas party for The CALL foster children and parents, please call 501-658-0242 and let Pam Davis know. She will let you know the details. They are in need of the following: drinks (sodas, etc.), 5-6 crockpots of meals, finger foods, plates, bowls, and silverware (assuming paper/plastic). They will also accept monetary donations to purchase items.
Having trouble with the new Gloria?

This is what the Feast of Corpus Christi is all about 06/06/2021

This is what the Feast of Corpus Christi is all about

In the Blessed Sacrament, “Christ becomes our food,” and in so doing he teaches us about himself, about ourselves, and about creation.

En el Santísimo Sacramento "Cristo se convierte en nuestra comida" y al hacerlo, nos enseña acerca de sí mismo, de nosotros y de nuestra creación.

This is what the Feast of Corpus Christi is all about Christ could have nourished us in any way he wanted to. Instead, he chooses to take up the good things of this earth – wheat, water, wine.

Today, on the Annunciation of the Lord, we have an opportunity to reflect upon Mary's story and the very moment that she said yes to God's plan and accepted the invitation to heavenly motherhood. We leave you with a prayer to help us be ready to say "Yes" to God every day.

A Prayer to Be Open to God's Will

Good and gracious God,
I know that life can be unpredictable.
Sometimes I know what is good and right,
but I don't have the courage to do it.
Sometimes I am so busy with my own affairs,
I forget to see the needs of people in front of me.
Sometimes I am set in my own ways,
and I resist growing and learning.
Help me, Lord, to be open to Your will.
When You prompt me to do the right thing,
give me the courage to do it.
When those around me need my help,
give me Your heart to love them.
When I'm stuck in my own ways,
give me the grace to grow closer to You every day.
Give me the trust and confidence of Mary.
Let it be done unto me according to Your word!
Amen.
