Where Will Jesus Go This Summer?
Jesus is with us wherever we go, so let’s take him with us this summer!
Pick up a Flat Jesus cutout from the R.E. table (or make your own), and wherever you go, near or far, take a photo with him. Send it with your family name and a comment to Terry Colville so that everyone can enjoy hearing about Jesus’s summer adventures.
Our first Flat Jesus sighting is from the Outer Banks!

A Prayer for Evangelization
EVER PRESENT GOD,
we give You thanks for the gift of Your Son, Jesus.
We thank You for the unity we find in Him.
We ask You to send Your Holy Spirit upon us
...that we might boldly proclaim Your love,
...that we might courageously speak Your truth,
...that we might humbly live as Jesus did,
ever faithful to You, ever joyful in Your service, ever hopeful that Your Kingdom will burst forth in this moment.
Send us valiantly forth with the Good News that in this place, in this parish, Jesus is alive, welcoming the lost and leading us all to lives of merciful compassion!
