Visual Worship-Be encouraged to look toward the altar area to notice the change of  seasons as depicted by the floral arrangements and incorporate it into your worship. Visual worship encourages quiet contemplation and  introspection enhancing deeper connection with the Spirit.

 

Foster Parents Needed- Foster parenting can be the most gratifying work you will ever do but it is not for everyone.  It requires opening yourself and your home to children who have experienced loss and need someone to love, nurture, advocate and protect them.  Foster care involves partnering with social workers, schools, family court and community resources to meet an infant, child, or young person’s needs.  All types of people make good foster parents as we all have our own special talents. If your family is thinking of foster care, contact Kaitlyn Beurjey with Catholic Social Services at 906-280-0843 and begin the discussion.
