|Celebrating 100 years with a
We are breaking ground!
This is the moment that so many of us have been waiting
for and it also coincides with the
100th anniversary of a Catholic presence in Wilson
Bishop David Choby will be joining us on August 16th to
celebrate Mass at 8:30 am and then again at 11:00 am.
In between those two Masses, we will ceremoniously
“break ground” for our new church at 10:00 am.
This symbolic event will take place on the church lawn,
next to the rectory. Why there, you might be asking?
To prevent a large number of people and children from
having to cross the parking lot between Masses
in order to get to a ceremonial site north of the
parking lot as cars leave and arrive for church
Shovels will be provided and all parishioners will have
the opportunity to turn a shovel full of dirt if they so
Plastic shovels will be there for the children to join
in the action.
Bring your cameras to record the event, but please,
please no cameras or
flash photography in-side the church during Mass.
There will be parking attendants to help you find a
place to park with what we expect will be an overflow
You can park at the church, in the field north of the
church or at Cumber-land University.
There will be additional handicapped places marked off
near the church.
Importantly, we ask all parents to walk their
child/children into the parish hall and class-rooms that
as it will be the 1st day of Religious Education
Don’t assign that responsibility to an older sibling. No
“drop offs” will be permitted.
After the ground breaking, there will be a “sweet treat”
for all present in the form of a scoop of ice cream.
It’s just a small way to say thanks for your cooperation
that day and for helping to make t
his dream of a new church come to fruition.
Thank you for having
“Faith in Our Future”.
The amount of families
visiting The Giving Cabinet has increased during the
We speculate this could be due to the fact that children
not being in school are requiring more food at home.
The families are incredibly thankful and appreciate the
love and support shown to them by your generosity.
The last of the 205 bags of food and hygiene items you
supplied the cabinet during Lent have been given out.
Look forward to this event again in Lent 2016.
Thank you to all the Giving Cabinet Volunteers.
Volunteers for July 23 are Lynda Hart and Cathy Maggart

and Homebound Ministry
This ministry is an important role in our parish and we
want to nourish it with a more coordinated approach to our
hospitalized and homebound parishioners
so that our Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion will
know that we as a church are behind them in offering our
prayers and support.
If you know of a parishioner who would benefit from this
ministry, please call the church office at 444-0524 or
email Nikki at email@example.com
with their name and we will gladly contact them so that
they can begin receiving Holy Communion from one of our
parishioners on the Hospital & Homebound Ministry.
