We are about prayer, discussion and Christian fellowship. A NEW GROUP, WHICH WILL MEET AT THE CHURCH, IS NOW FORMING AND WE CAN ACCOMMODATE A FEW MORE PARTICIPANTS. If you ar e interested in joining this or another group or have questions call Connie Accurso (750-3130) or Frank Webber. “SYMBOLON:” Critically acclaimed by prominent members of the church, SYMBOLON is a new course by Augustine Institute which provides a compelling and comprehensive explanation of the Catholic Faith through beautifully crafted presentations, state-of-the-art video and a dynamic team of outstanding teachers, led by professor, speaker and author Dr. Edward Sri. The course, through a series of ten 90 minute sessions, provides a clear and compelling vision of what the church teaches and how to live it amidst the challenges of contemporary society. It will be offered in September!! Litbit: Presider: Why do we call the pr iest a pr esider? Those of us who predate Vatican II remember using terms like “hearing Mass,” or “attending Mass.” We said that Father “said” Mass. All of these ways of speaking about our Sunday Worship give the feeling of a passive, audience-type event. And in many ways, it was. Mass was in Latin and the music was supplied by the choir, if there was any at all. Along with the Vatican II emphasis of the importance of the activity of the assembly, was the conviction that our worship experience was a celebration, a celebration of praise and thanksgiving. For a while, the Church started calling the priest the celebrant, but it quickly realized that that was misleading, because ALL OF US celebrate the liturgy. The priest’s role is to lead our prayer. Therefore, his role is described as “presider” or sometimes “priest-celebrant” the one who presides over the assembly and leads us in our action of prayer and praise. (Copyright 2008, Resource Publi- Bible Study will r esume on Wednesday, September 10. All are welcome!

Come Pray for our Troops at Veterans Park A prayer group for our troops meets every Thursday at 8:00 a.m. at Veterans' Memorial Park in Spanish Springs. The group has been meeting for 8 years, and the main purpose is so the people don't forget our soldiers. The names of any soldier who has lost their life in the past week are read. Then a list is read of approximately 150 men and women who are now overseas and at home. Then the group says prayers for the safety of the soldiers and their families. At the end, we sing a patriotic song. After the meeting there is a fellowship breakfast at Too Jays in Spanish Springs. Everyone is welcome. It is only 20-30 minutes of your time. The troops need to be remembered; they give us so much. For information call Tom or Barbara Troisi at (352) 430-0175 Parish Happenings Please watch the Bulletin for updates in the next few weeks on: * New Traffic Patterns * Paved Parking * Overflow Parking New Church Mass Schedule to begin when church opens Daily Mass: Mon.-Sat. 8:00 AM Saturday Vigil Mass: Sunday Mass: 4:00 PM 6:00 PM 8:00 AM 10:00 AM 12:00 PM (Noon) As many of you have noticed the Saturday Vigil Mass times have changed. The reason for this change is because the Policy of the Providence of Miami states: A Vigil Mass cannot be held before 4:00 p.m. We were given special consideration by the Bishop to celebrate Mass at 3:00pm on Saturday due to the number of masses necessary to accommodate our blossoming parish. THANK YOU… ...for your patience and for using caution as we continue the construction of our new church. Please consider wearing closed-toed shoes for safety’s sake.

This is usually the case in the summer and it decreases in the winter. There were fourteen clients who were helped by our personal assistance volunteers with electricity being the most expensive item. With the heat, humidity, and poor insulation, most clients have high bills and have a difficult time paying their bill when their work hours have been decreased. Other items that were paid were rent, medicine, gas and phone bills. Usually financial assistance is given only once a year. Since donations are down from parishioners and clubs, six hundred dollars was also spent for food to be distr ibuted at the pantry. Our income is derived from Our Mother's Attic and donations. Y our support is appreciated by our volunteers as well as clients. The office and pantry is located at San Pedro Maldonado Mission Church, across from the city hall in downtown Wildwood. This location is convenient to our clients who may need to walk. Volunteers are usually in the office Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 10 am to see clients with appointments. Privacy, prayer, compassionate listening, and advice are used with every person who comes to us for help. Appointments are necessary for an appropriate amount of time is given for each client. Volunteers for the pantry bring food from the church to the pantry where food is sorted, shelved, and inventoried. Food is purchased in order that enough is on hand to be distributed. Clients are interviewed and given food for their household. Food requested includes cereal; canned fruit and vegetables; canned meat including pasta and sausages; crackers and peanut butter; 1lb packages of rice and dried pinto beans; condiments including mustard and ketchup; mac and cheese; pudding mixes; and instant mashed potatoes. If you ar e able to donate paper products; soap; and/or grocery cards, that would also be appreciated. Please remember that children are home for the summer and with the increases in food prices, providing for that extra meal may bring a financial hardship for many families. Also, many senior citizens may not have had the employment opportunities that many of us had in northern states and they have a difficult time with their small income. "We are the hands of Christ reaching out to those in need. We are the spirit of hope......Go make a difference in the world."

And asking this in grace, I give you a blessing. Amen.

The 4th Degree of the Knights of Columbus at St. Marks's the Evangelist Church would like to thank everyone for their support during the recent US Flag collection. We collected over 300 flags. The US flag is a very special icon for the people of this country. Many have made sacrifices and many have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom this symbol represents. Special treatment should be given to these flags when they become worn, torn, and faded, the 4th Degree at St. Mark's insured they received the dignity and respect the flag deserves. The flags were properly "Retired" during Flag Retirement Ceremonies on Flag Day. We thank you for your support and look forward to your support again next year.
