O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, Hear me.

From the desire of being esteemed,
Deliver me, Jesus.

From the desire of being loved...
From the desire of being extolled ...
From the desire of being honored ...
From the desire of being praised ...
From the desire of being preferred to others...
From the desire of being consulted ...
From the desire of being approved ...
From the fear of being humiliated ...
From the fear of being despised...
From the fear of suffering rebukes ...
From the fear of being calumniated ...
From the fear of being forgotten ...
From the fear of being ridiculed ...
From the fear of being wronged ...
From the fear of being suspected ...

That others may be loved more than I,
Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be esteemed more than I ...
That, in the opinion of the world,
others may increase and I may decrease ...
That others may be chosen and I set aside ...
That others may be praised and I unnoticed ...
That others may be preferred to me in everything...
That others may become holier than I,
 provided that I may become as holy as I should…


Co-Traveler, Fr. Joel

NEW THIS YEAR!  This year we have a few sessions for the parents. to be able These sessions will be held at the same time as the children will be attending their classes.  These sessions are not limited to just parents all are welcome to attend these sessions. The topics will be “Sacraments: What are they and why?” ,“The Mass, what is going on?”, and “The Bible, not just another good book”.  More information will be available as the time gets closer.  



Wow! School is starting and with it goes all of the excitement of a new school year!  Here are a few suggestions to start now that will help to make the school year a wonderful experience!

First-Set a routine. Most children don’t keep a regular routine during the summer. Most kids begin staying up late in the summer months. Using an early bedtime cold turkey the night before school start results in a child who simply isn’t ready for an earlier bedtime.  But kids need 9 1/2 to 11 hours of sleep a night, depending on their age. (Teens need a minimum of 9.5; toddlers usually do best with 11). Getting them back on schedule so they can achieve their needed  sound asleep takes awhile to move to the earlier bedtime. Start moving bedtime a bit earlier every night by having kids read in bed for an hour before lights out, which is also good for their reading skills. Setting up a regular bedtime and wake-up routine before school starts is a crucial step to prepare your child for class and a practical way to cut down on first-day stress. 

Second-Set a Schedule. Have a discussion with your child about playtime and homework time.  Research shows that it is beneficial for a child to do their homework at a regular schedule each day. Even on days with no homework, children should still use that scheduled time to either go over materials, study for future tests, write in a journey, or read a good book. Have an study area with all the supplies and few distraction should be set up. Having a set area prevents the up and down avoidance of getting the homework done.  Having a calendar that your child or you can jot down important dates on, when tests are scheduled or special projects are due, is very helpful. Using the calendar for jotting down other important dates like field trips or parent-teacher meetings is also very helpful!

Third-Set a School Zone.  Set up a location for the backpack and all the materials needed to take to school the next day.  This eliminates the running around and mad rush in the morning.  Also clothes should be laid out ready for the next day.  Eliminating the morning rush helps to set the day’s mood!

Final note.  Every morning before everyone rush off to start the day, say a prayer together asking for God’s guidance and help!  If your faith a is important to you it will be important to your child.  And if education is important to you it will be important to your child. Research shows that children value what their parents value. Have a great school year!

God bless, 

Lois Maczuzak

Beginning of School Year Prayer

Another school year has dawned and with it comes unexpected invitations for graces and blessings. We pray that Jesus in our midst will keep our hearts and minds open to new understandings and fresh ways of living out the Gospel message of justice and peace. At the beginning of this new school year we are filled with the breath of God that is our life and inspiration. Acknowledging that we are nothing without the presence of Jesus among us, we pray this day for an increase of God’s inspiring love in our lives. We ask that we may be open to the movements of the Holy Spirit. Amen —Adaptation of “Prayer for Inspiration and Strength” by Edward F. Gabriele that appears in his 1995 publication Act Justly, Love Tenderly, Love Humbly

QUOTE FROM POPE FRANCIS:  “I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful … I see the church as a field hospital after battle.” (September 30, 2013 Interview American Magazine)


The JOY Choir is looking to recruit more members.  Since Mass times have changed, there might be someone that goes to Mass on Saturday at 4:00 that would like to join the choir. If you know anyone interested, please pass this along.  Please see Ellyn after mass or contact the Parish Office at 715-799-3811 for more information.
