JUNE 19, 2011 SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY My brothers and sisters, Jesus came among us to show us the face of God and reveal the divine nature — a nature that is mysteriously both One Person and a Community of Persons. And so, created in that divine image, we are somehow called to be both an individual and unavoidably part of a community. Today, we are that community. Let us pray for the grace to reveal the face of God our Creator. SCRIPTURE READINGS Exod 34:4b-6, 8-9 Moses worshiped God as merciful and gracious. 2 Cor 13:11-13 Paul greets the Church in the name of the Trinity. John 3:16-18 God sent the Son to save the world.

PASTORAL CARE The sixth of a nine-part series on Pastoral Care at St. Therese Church Intercessory Prayer Chain Our Baptism declared us as a kingdom of priests, therefore we, like the Levitical priests of old, are called to stand before God and intercede for our sisters and brothers in Christ. The Intercessory Prayer Group, also known as the Prayer Chain, is composed of parishioners committed to praying for the emergency needs of parishioners. As the Body of Christ, we are called to pray for its members: Please pray for the health of: Carole Crowder King, Ursula Burton, Mary Frizzell, Carmen Espanol, Fr. Joseph McGowan, S.J., Josie Vicencio’s son, Michael Carter, Damaris Pearson, Pauline Ridley’s niece, Kristine Simenstad-Mackin, Martha O’Fallon and Austin O’Fallon, the granddaughter of Dave and Mary Ellen Haley, Andrea Buckmeier, Dick and Bernice Welch, Bernetta Branch’s daughter, Theresa Davis, Sue Boyle, Alison Hendricks’ family, Judy Harding, Nate Albro, Roxanne Harrison’s family, Deborah Nimmons’ mother, Sandra Cotton, Art and Erville Wheeler, and Cecil Hughey.
July 20, 2011 11:00 AM Mass at Park Shore
If you or a family member are in need of prayer for a special intention, please call the Parish Office at (206) 3252711, or inform a Pastoral Care Commissioner of your needs. Requests will be immediately passed on to Prayer Chain members. Prayer Chain members are bound to confidentiality.
