LIFE TOGETHER Dear Friends, Unveiling the “Growing Tree” moves us towards the conclusion of the Capital Campaign. Thank you all who have been supportive with your prayers and finances in this effort. The Growing Tree has ornaments on which are images of Umbrellas [for the covered walkway and drop off for church] and basketball nets [for the gymnasium], along with dollar amounts and instructions on return. Taking an ornament is a way of offering a gift to the campaign. If you have not given before this is a simple and easy way to do so. If you have given then this is a little lagniappe for which I thank you. This is so important because every dollar raised lessens the chance that we will need to borrow money. So, please help us in this final push, FULL COURT PRESS. The Campaign will come to an end in November. Next weekend is Labor Day weekend. It’s a civil Holiday but it will also include opportunities for us to remember the fruitfulness of work and to pray for those who are currently unemployed. Please pray for them, and join us for Mass on Labor Day morning at 8:30am. The gathering between Star Hill Baptist Church members and our parishioners last Sunday went very well. It’s good to share our Christian lives building insights into how to live as good citizens on earth and citizens in heaven. I thank Dr. Jay and Vickie Brooks for hosting this gathering. I hope this first week of September, which brings football, a holiday and hopefully soon some cool weather, offers you a blessing.

ADORATION “NOT JUST ANOTHER MEETING” All are invited on Tuesdays to continue their worship and love of God at adoration. It is a visit, not a meeting. A visit of ‘love to love’. Bring whatever is in your heart and soul and leave it at the feet of the Lord for HE will be at yours. “Adoration for the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth”. -Mother Theresa Join us every Tuesday evening at 7:00pm for Eucharistic Adoration. Taking special time with our Lord is a great way to grow closer to Him.

Applications for the 2013-2014 school year are available on the preschool website ( and in the Preschool Office.

PARISH OFFICE CLOSED The Parish Office will be closed Monday, September 3rd for Labor Day.

ST JEAN VIANNEY CAPITAL CAMPAIGN “Our Time to Pray, Our Time to Give” A MATCHING GIFT There are parishioners who work for businesses which will sometimes MATCH a charitable donation to a Church or School. Is your employer one of those people? If so, your gift to the Capital Campaign could be matched. Sometimes, the employer will match a gift to a SCHOOL but not a CHURCH. Regardless of the case, we can help you find out if your employer will match your gift. Talk to Fr. Tom or Debbie Daigle at the parish office, 753.7950 so we can help you help us.

HUMILITY Today’s reading from Sirach celebrates what will become the theme of today’s Gospel: humility. Pride causes us to demand from others an exalted estimate of our status, but humility allows us to see things more clearly. It allows us a broader perspective. Humility promises us the favor of God and the love of those who know us. The parable in today’s Gospel concerns the danger of pride and the necessity of humility. The banquet setting, often used by Jesus, is a symbol of heaven’s abundance and of the fulfillment of God’s promise. The parable is not simply good advice on how to avoid embarrassment; it is about salvation. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
