Take Away Hunger on October 9: Take Away Hunger will once again take place at St. John from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. This year’s presenter will be Joe Mischka, from Cedar Rapids, who will speak about agriculture in Haiti. A seasoned Haitian traveler, Joe works and visits with the Haitian local farmers in the Notre Dame de Lourdes area to learn more about their agriculture and what their needs are. The evening is divided up into three-twenty-minute segments, 1. Joe Mischka, 2. Packaging in the lower level, or 3. Join some of the grades as they learn new facts in the education wing about Haiti and agriculture/Catholic Social Teaching. Regardless of when you arrive you will have an opportunity to listen to Joe, help package or go to class. Feel free to spend as much time as you want in any session.
RCIA will begin soon. If you, or anyone you know is interested in becoming a Catholic, or want to learn more about the Catholic faith, contact Fr. Andrew at 319-895-6246 or Linda at 319-540-1190.
Family Sacramental Interviews will begin this week for First Reconciliation and First Communion. This year we have 23 children who will be preparing to receive First Sacraments. Please hold these children and their families in prayer as their parents teach their child/children about receiving the sacraments and how they live the sacrament in their everyday lives.
