Heart to Heart Ministry:  The purpose of this ministry is to reach out to parishioners who need a listening ear, some emotional support and friendship.  The possibilities for reaching out are endless and it is the role of the commission to determine the focus and how to best reach out to those in need.

This new ministry is currently under formation and the first contact person is the parish secretary.  The number is 285-2025.

Prayer for Divine Mercy

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.                 Concluding prayer of the Divine Mercy Chaplet

 HEART TO HEART MINISTRY

 February 20, 2017

 Minutes

Meeting attendees:  Barbara Hammond, Mary Klinge, Sally Dreiling, Lee Gilcris, Fr. Warren, Kathy Kazmaier

Opening Prayer

As we begin our meeting, let us make our prayer these words written by St. Ita (d. ca. 570):

“Three things that please God most are true faith in God with a pure heart, a simple life with a grateful spirit, and generosity inspired by charity.  The three things that most displease God are a mouth that hates people, a heart harboring resentments, and confidence in wealth.”
