Social Justice Ministry Corner
Man has the right to live. He has the right to bodily integrity and to the means necessary for the proper development of life, particularly food, clothing, shelter, medical care, rest, and finally, the necessary social services. In consequence, he has the right to be looked after in the event of ill health, disability stemming from his work, widowhood, old age, enforced unemployment, or whenever through no fault of his own he is deprived of the means of livelihood.
Pope St. John XXIII, Pacem in Terris 1963

Positions Open
Our Lady of Fatima Church
is now accepting applications for three positions:

2. Director of Religious Education. This full-time position Oversees and guides all religious education programs of the parish, including: Adult Formation, RCIA process and our Children/Youth Religious Education programs.
3. Youth Minister. This part-time position is for a person to oversee our High School and Jr. High Youth Groups.
For more information and applications please call the parish office: 524-7421.

Dates: July 25th-29th Time: 9:00 am-12:00 noon. $10.00 per child. Registration forms available in the Parish Office and are due by July 11. Space is limited to 120 children so register early! Camp Registration

Camp Counselor applications are also available. Applicants must be entering 7th grade or above. Counselors must commit to the entire week: July 25th-29th from 8 am to 1 pm AND training on Saturday July 23rd from 10 am-12 noon.
 

New registrations for 2016-2017 school year will be accepted on Thursday, July 7 from 5 pm to 8 pm in the M room. Please be prepared to pay 2016-2017 fees and any unpaid balances.
Fees: Per Family reg. $60. Book/Materials $25 per child. Sacramental Prep. $20 per child.
Religious Education is something we ALL need to pursue for our entire lives to develop our relationship with God. It is not something that we do just to prepare for Sacraments and then we are “done” until the next one, and “totally done” once we receive Confirmation.
Just as when our children are in school we don’t stop sending them once they learn their multiplication tables, hopefully as adults we keep reading and learning, our faith needs continual feeding and nourishing. Lifelong faith formation is important to help us learn to deal with both the joys and sorrows as we grow in age and hopefully, wisdom.

Missals Missing
We have now returned to Ordinary Time, you may have noticed the Missals in the pews have been changed. We still have the Music Issue for the year, but the Missals we currently have are to last from now until the feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe – November 21.
Unfortunately, as we were changing out the Missals during the week of May 21, we found that we were missing many of the books from the pews, including the blue plastic folders. These are purchased by the parish for the use of the congregation during Mass, and need to be left in the pews for others to use and enjoy.
PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THEM HOME. We need them here for use at Mass. If you have removed either the Missal, Music Issue, or both plus the holder, please bring them back. We are required by our licensing agreement to destroy them at the end of their time, it is not permissible to take them even then.

Youth Group Come join us for Tuesday & Thursday morning Mass & breakfast, 8 am to noon in the hall. Youth Group is open to all 6th-12th graders. Please contact Katie Steffanic, Youth Minister, at 524-7421 or Ksteffanic@gmail.com with any questions.

Can You Spend One Hour With Me?
Jesus asked His Apostles, “Could you not keep watch with me for one hour?” This is a beautiful way to spend quiet time in the presence of our Lord. Hours for exposition are: 12 noon to 5:00 pm, Thursdays.

Are you a registered parishioner?
Have you moved, changed phone numbers, or had other changes since registering? Help us to keep our records up to date by letting us know when changes happen—call the parish office at 524-7421 or go to the
Update Form page to change your address. Do you consider yourself a member of the parish? If you do, but have not registered, please do so. Please call the parish office at 524-7421. Periodically we mail out information and would hate to have you miss out on what is happening because you haven’t let us know you are part of us. Help us to be a more welcoming parish

SCHOOL SECURITY
For security our parking lot gates will be closed at 8:15 am on school days. The sliding gate between the old hall and Church will remain closed. If you are attending weekday morning Mass we ask that you please park on the street or the parking lot in front of the school.

Don’t Be A Victim
NEVER leave any valuable items in your car that can be seen. If you’re going to leave something in the trunk or other areas that are out of sight, place them there before you arrive. There are people w ho watch and wait for any opportunity to break into cars. Our security cameras are good, but they can’t stop a break-in. Also, please don’t leave bicycles parked without locking them. Purses, bags, and backpacks should never be left unattended-even while going to communion. Sadly, there are people who look for opportunities. Don’t be a victim!
