Knights of Columbus will be hosting brunch after Mass this Sunday, May 29. Free will donations from the brunch will benefit Teen Challenge.
TeenChallenge exists to be a catalyst for 180 degree life change in the addict. This recovery ministry began in 1958 in Brooklyn, New York, with a focus on teenagers addicted to drugs. TeenChallenge in New York City has now grown into an organization with 178 affiliates throughout the United States. TeenChallenge’s focus remains on helping teenagers suffering from addictions, but it also now has programs for adults as well. Adult and TeenChallenge of the Midlands is the TeenChallenge affiliate in the Midwest, and it has a center in Colfax, IA, along with additional centers in Iowa and Nebraska. For more information about TeenChallenge, please go to www.tcmid.org/#/home. There is no issue too big, no life too hopeless, no addiction too strong: there is HOPE in Jesus Christ!

We recently initiated the use of hearing-impaired devices for parishioners during mass. Headsets and transmitters for use by the hearing impaired were purchased thanks to memorial contributions.
Ushers are responsible for issuing the devices for those who need it. Please contact an usher prior to mass to check out a receiver. They will instruct you on how to use it. Following mass please return the device to the usher who assisted you before mass.
Thank you Cris Schwanebeck for obtaining the equipment and ensuring proper installation. If you have questions about the equipment or would like to purchase your own head set, please either call Cris or the church office at 641-828-7050.
