The youth group will be hosting a pumpkin carving event at church on Sunday the 18th of October from 5-6:30. Everyone is welcome, especially the kids. Youth group will be providing the pumpkins and some carving kits. If you have extra carving kits please bring them with you. Make sure you dress appropriately, this will be held outside, weather permitting. Come with a mask and a smile….. We can still see it behind the mask!

Anyone interested in using one of our halls? See, call, or e-mail  Fr. Clift.  You can reach him at 859-824-5381

Important! The Messenger- each family registered in the parish should be receiving The Messenger. If you have not been receiving it, please give your name to Carol Rector or Fr. Clift.

Do you know someone who might be interested in learning more about the Catholic faith?  Each year, we start our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) classes for those interested in looking at the Catholic Church.  No obligation, just learn about the Faith. Have them call or see Father Clift.

A message from Bishop Foys

 The following two links are the Diocesan Protocols for Celebrating the Liturgy amid Covid19.:

This is the perfect time to learn to pray the Rosary!  http://www.theholyrosary.org/ is an excellent site to visit to learn the prayers and Mysteries if you do not already know them. While we are home more due to covid-19, it gives us time to reflect on the Perfect Love, that is God. It only takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to pray, and the results are Graces given to us through our Blessed Mother.

October is the Month to focus on The Holy Rosary!

 

 

This is one of our most powerful prayers!
