Download Our New Parish App!

At St. Benedict we are pursuing new opportunities to foster a stronger parish life and better engage the New Evangelization. As a part of these efforts we are happy to announce that St. Benedict now has it's own app for Apple and Android phones.

Our new app will allow us to send you useful and important messages throughout the week regarding our parish life and events, and allow you to reply to messages or RSVP for events.

There will be no need for parishioners with smart phones to remember to silence their phones before Mass. The app will send you a reminder to silence your phone 20 minutes before the Mass you select. Many more great features will be a help to all of us, such as, daily Mass readings, Catholic news, prayers and prayer reminders, quick access to online tithing, Confession reminders, and our weekly bulletin.

So, be sure to download the app  today by visiting myparishapp.com or searching for myparish on your phone's app store, and stay connected with us all week long.

What’s Jesus saying to kids this summer? Summer is a great time to talk to your kids about Jesus’s message. We hear some fantastic Gospel stories at Mass and they are good conversation starters for parents and kids. While you’re driving around to all those summer activities, ask your kids about what they heard Jesus say at Mass. Check out this website that will help your family think about the Gospel stories we hear each Sunday. rclblectionary.com/gospel-reflections/gospel-reflections-monthly-listing   The rclblectionary website will give you some helpful background on the readings.

Thanks to the youth of St Benedict’s – A special thank you goes out to several of our middle school and high school youth who helped the Knights of Columbus serve at our soup kitchen last Wednesday. The kids also distributed toiletry items. Thank you: Aston Acree, Brooks & Blaise Gatrell, Lucas Hogue, Eddie Malooley, Brooke & Steven Montgomery, Nicholas Winchell and, their catechist, Nancy Gatrell.

A Prayer In The Year Of Our 150th Anniversary

 

Loving God, you have blessed our parish with generations of faithful people seeking to walk in the footsteps of your Son.

In Humility, we give thanks for those who inspired, sacrificed and led us to this moment in time.

In joy, we give thanks for the privilege of gathering in prayer, celebrating Eucharist and serving you as a community of faith.

In prayer, we ask you, O

God, to help us to continue to grow in our faith.

Grant us a gentle spirit to serve the People of God.

Inspire us by your Spirit to bring the Good News of salvation to the world by our words and deeds.

Give us the vision, faith, and courage to build a vibrant future for those who will carry on the legacy of St. Benedict Parish.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your son, who lives with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
