On the weekend of July 7/8, we will celebrate the “Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick” after the 5:00 pm, Saturday evening Mass and the 10:00 am, Sunday morning Mass.  This sacrament is for those who are sick, aged, infirmed in anyway.  We pray for and ask God’s healing blessings for strength for all those who feel they need it.  We believe in spiritual, psychological, emotional healing as well as physical healing if He so wills.


We would like to welcome Lorraine Brekosky and her children, Hayley & Jeremy, who have come to join our parish this week.


Congratulations to the families of Ethan Thomas Carpenter, Addison Kathleen Walter and Michael James Stephens, who are baptized into God’s family this weekend.

Christ the Light of the World Parish and St. Joseph Parish are again on the “cutting edge.”  In order to meet the need of our growing CCD program and help our busy families for the first time this year beginning in August, we will be offering “online registration.”  We will still be offering “in person” registration for parents who would like to come in and meet with the teachers to discuss this year’s current curriculum or any issues relating to your child.  Look for the announcement in the bulletin with both types of registration dates.  This is an exciting opportunity for you and us.
