June 2015 Vacation Bible School
This past week, the COTLF Gaudium Youth Ministry program concluded its 5th annual Vacation Bible School Summer Camp!
Over 150 children between Kinder and 6th Grader were served by over 100 teenage volunteers, who collectively amassed over 6,000 hours of service hours! We would like to thank ALL our volunteers for their incredibly hard work in making VBS 2015: EVEREST the best one yet!
We’re also excited to announce that
VBS will be back next June for
Cave Quest: Following Jesus, the Light of the World.
June 20, 26 & 30 Fortnight for freedom events
June 2015 No 6:15 am Mass in july
Following the precedent set last year, the significant reduction in attendance during the summer months, and in light of the more limited presence of available priests at our parish during this vacation period, the 6:15am Mass will be suspended during the month of July.
There would otherwise be days when there would be four or five Masses scheduled and only one available priest, which is simply unreasonable. Appreciation is extended to Father Barajas who changed his vacation schedule in order that we could resume the 6:15am daily Mass again on Mon, August 3rd.
Thank you for your understanding.
June 2015 Thank you Fr. Martin!!
This weekend is Father Martin’s last weekend with us at Little Flower before he goes on vacation, and then moves to Washington to begin his doctoral studies. Gratitude is in order for his fine ministry and loving service during his two years in our parish.
Thank you, Father Martin, for being such a gentile servant of the Gospel. You will be dearly missed! We look forward to seeing you when you visit over Christmas break! Blessings and Best Wishes.
