THE COURAGE TO LOVE
Annual Catholic Appeal 2016: Build My Church
A Message from Archbishop Carlson:
Previous generations have worked to build the Church into a community of faithful men and women in St. Louis, with a generous outreach to those in greatest need. In announcing a Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has once again reminded us that the Church is here to practice mercy, forgiveness and compassion. I invite everyone to consider a gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal. Your generous support will help forge new leadership and enthusiasm for the vitality of our parishes and strengthen the mission of the Church in St. Louis.

Don’t forget to come pick up your ACA pledge card after Mass! The cards will be available in the old eighth grade classroom.

With Grateful Thanks to Mary Blum
Sunday, May 29th | after 11am Mass | OBH
St. Richard Parish owes a great debt of gratitude to Mary Blum for her faith-filled and loving service in music ministry. Only God knows all the lives she has enriched: students, choir members, young couples, grieving families, all of our parishioners and guests. While none of us and count all of that, we all can say, with grateful hearts, “Thank You!” Please join me in expressing our grateful thanks to Mary Blum, and her devoted husband John, for their years of generous service to St. Richard Church, with a Reception on Sunday, May 29th. All are welcome!!

Easter Sunday Prayer

O Lord,
Risen, alive and full of grace.
You paid such a price that we may live in freedom today.
We worship your holy name and give thanks for your redeeming grace.

Heavenly Father,
May we drink in your tender love so that we can pour this love out to others.
Come reign in our hearts, minds and spirits.

Holy Spirit,
We welcome you to blow through our every word, action and thought.
Come transform us on the inside so that each day we become more like our
risen Lord.

Amen.
