A REFLECTION FROM SSVD... In today’s Gospel we hear Jesus say “This people pays me lip service but their heart is far from me.” In living the gospel, we must serve God from our heart especially by helping those who are poor and suffering. Is there a family you know who needs assistance? Please call the Parish Center and leave a message for the Society of St. Vincent dePaul (SSVD) so that together we can “make God’s presence known” to those who are suffering and poor.
The Society of St. Vincent dePaul thanks its many benefactors at Queen of Angels for their generous support of its annual School Supply Drive. In collaboration with St. Matthias and the youth group at St. Pascal, over 96 neighborhood children whose families have been helped in the past by SSVD received backpacks and school supplies. Please keep these children and their families in your prayers that the work they begin in school this year may bear great fruit.
SPRED: SHARE THE BLESSINGS There is a young woman in our Tuesday SPRED Group who needs a Special Friend. Are you interested in becoming that Friend? Are you curious about what it takes to be a Special Friend to our developmentally disabled participants? Call the SPRED Office at the Parish Center. The number is 773-539-3634. If no one answers, please leave a message for either Julia or Betty to return the call. We’d like you to see what we’re about and then decide if you want to be part of all SPRED is. Please take the time to think, pray and reflect about this. There is a young woman waiting to see what this year has in store for her.
REMEMBER A LOVED ONE Mass intentions may be offered in the name of friends or relatives, living or deceased, for those in need of extra prayers or in honor of a beloved saint. Dates special to loved ones, living and deceased, are great times to remember them in the prayers during Mass. Suggested donation is $10 per Mass. Call 773-539-7510.
INTENCIONES DE MISAS Para pedir una intención especial para una misa en inglés o español, por favor visite la oficina parroquial o llame al 773-539-3176. La donación sugerida es de $10 por misa.
