April 19, 2015
Fr. Mark’s Remarks
A note from Dcn. Mike Murray
Last Sunday afternoon, I blessed the
new outdoor Stations of the Cross
on the west side of St. Thomas
Aquinas Church. Positioned between
the two entrances to the church in
what many refer to as the “back
parking lot” they are a beautiful, prayerful and inspiring
addition to our parish grounds.
I am humbled and gratified by the warm,
prayerful support that the STA / SJSC
community has given my family and me in
the past year. Now, I must ask for still more prayer.
With the support of Father Mark, Bishop Boyea is
permitting me to take some classes at Sacred Heart
Major Seminary in Detroit, with an eye to possibly
being ordained a priest in June 2016. During this
time, I'll still be at the parish, at my regular job, and
around town as usual. If I sometimes am wearing
black clerics, do not be alarmed! Seriously, I would
ask you to keep this in prayer, seeking that the Lord's
will, whatever it may be, will be accomplished.
The Stations of the Cross
prayer garden is the Eagle
Scout project of Lukasz
Spiewla, a parish member and
part of Troop #293
sponsored by St. Thomas
Aquinas/St. John Church &
Student Center. He was
assisted by fellow scouts
Nate LaCroix and Paul
Tombelli. Adult leaders
included Wieslaw Spiewla,
David Zygmontovich and
John Listerman (Troop Committee Member). Thank
you all for enhancing our parish grounds with this
great prayer tradition of our Catholic faith!
Thanks,
Dcn. Mike
Don’t forget to buy your tickets for the annual and
popular Steak & Song Music Ministry Fundraiser. I
can guarantee that there will be good food and great
entertainment. Proceeds from this fundraiser will
provide Catholic students with scholarships for their
studies at MSU, in exchange for their musical
contributions toward worship here in the Parish.
Have a blessed week!
Reception for Fr. Jerry Today
Today, Sunday, April 19, Fr. Jerry will
be ordained 40 years as a priest of the
Lansing Diocese. In celebration, he will
be saying a Mass of Thanksgiving at Noon
at St. John Church and Student Center.
Following the liturgy, there will be a small reception in
McDevitt Hall. If you are not able to attend, please
hold Fr. Jerry in prayer.
2
for Steak & Song are available in advance and can be
purchased in either church office.

We are still working toward our goal. Every
household is important so that our parish can be
successful. And, half of any money over the goal
amount comes back to our parish. If you have not
yet made a gift or a pledge, you are invited to join the
faithful of our parish community who have taken an
active role in the mission of the Church. Envelopes
are available at both churches. Our Parish goal is
$201,734 and has been pledged to help us reach that.

My Mission
by Kathryn Elizabeth Thomas More Collins
I never want to go through the motions. I want
passion, reason and the Holy Spirit to direct my
actions in the Church—whether personal or
ministerial. I want to avoid the plague of being
lukewarm.
Church History in the Modern Period
with Fr. Tucker
Tuesdays: 6:30-8:00pm
April 21Circle the Wagons: The Counterreformation and the Council of Trent (1545-1563)
I want to make a difference, whether in ministry,
physical therapy, as a mother, or whatever I may be
called to. I want to use my God given gifts for God’s
glory and to positively impact others, my community
and the world. I want to change the world.
April 28: Aggiornamento: The Second Vatican Council
in the era of the Space Age Popes (1962-1965)
All college students, members of the Graduate Student
& Young Professional Group and any young adults aged
18-28 are invited to join Fr. Tucker to explore the
Modern Period of Church History. We will meet in the
Library, downstairs at SJSC.
I want to learn to willingly accept crosses, to maybe
even love them. I want to be able to joyfully suffer
patiently. I want to master the virtues of courage,
wisdom, patience, love and humility while conquering
the vices of fear, gluttony, impatience, anger, and
pride.
Emmaus House Formation Night

Emmaus House (320 M.A.C. Ave)
All college women are welcome to join the Emmaus
House ladies after Sunday Supper for a formation
night! Dessert will be provided.
I want to be a saint. I want to overcome human
weakness with God’s help and become the saint and
woman God created me to be.
I want to be strong in my faith, to remain forever
curious, I want to remain childlike. I want to be in
the world but not of it.
I want to be free. I don’t want to be slave to food or
drink or material pleasures. I want to learn to trust
and love unconditionally.
Are you going to walk at Graduation in May?
We want to celebrate you!
I want to give this fight of faith the best I can give; I
want to leave this world with nothing left to give,
but open to receive all the graces of Heaven.
I want to walk this life giving all the glory to God,
being forever grateful for the gifts I have been given
and using those gifts to the best of my abilities. I
want to come home to the words “Well done, good
and faithful servant.”

found directly online or in in the March 6, 2015 issue
of Commonweal. All are welcome to join us!
The Book of the Psalms is a unique collection of the
song-prayers of Israel. To study Psalms is to study
prayer, ultimately to enter into prayer. The study
(from Little Rock Scripture Series) will challenge
participants to reflect on their own prayer and life
experiences. This study focuses on a selection of
twenty-eight psalms divided into three categories:
Psalms of Descriptive Praise; Psalms of Trust or
Confidence; and Wisdom Psalms. All are welcome –
questions, please contact Carol Ann at

STEUBENVILLE YOUTH
CONFERENCE
Your teen (graduating 8th graders
through graduating high schoolers)
is invited to join our parish trip to
the Steubenville Youth Conference
the weekend of June 19-21.
SMALL THINGS
This is the final class of the year for preschool Grade 8. Thank you for making the effort to get your
children to class over this past school year. Take a
moment to thank your children's catechists. We owe
them a debt of gratitude for their wonderful
dedication over this past year.
The Steubenville Youth Conference has a forty year
history of celebrating the Catholic faith, holding up
the teachings of the Church, and offering participants
a vibrant experience of Sacrament and prayer. At
SYC, teens often experience their faith in powerful
ways they have not imagined possible previously.
Information is being sent to teens active in our youth
programs. If you didn't get information at home, it
can be picked up from one of our offices, or mailed
to you if you e-mail or call us.
SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION students DO have
class next week. We are asking all Sunday morning
students to attend during the 4:30-5:45pm session
on Sunday, April 26. (They will meet with their
own catechists, and classmates, but at a time when
the church is free.) Monday students will meet as
usual on Monday, April 27.
Our FIRST COMMUNION RETREAT MORNING is
set for Saturday, April 25. Children will have the
opportunity to make bread from grains of wheat, do a
special craft, have a rehearsal in the church, and will
meet with Mr. Eldred to sign the songs they will be
singing at their first Communion Mass. Children
should meet by 9:30am in their assigned classrooms in
the school. They can be picked up from church
at noon. [An identical retreat for the STA School children
will be held on Thursday afternoon, April 23.]
This conference is for ALL teens in the parish.
Lansing Catholic students and homeschooled
students are warmly invited to attend. Please
contact Dian at [email protected] or 351-5460
to get registration information.
STEUBENVILLE YOUTH CONFERENCE registration
forms MUST be turned in no later than
this Wednesday, April 22. We will be releasing
any unfilled spaces so don't miss the opportunity!
THIS WEEK our fourth
graders studied the Rosary,
reviewing the mysteries with
large "Rosary Posters" and
concluded the session by
making their own special box
to keep their rosary in.
Could You Help By Sponsoring a Student?
Meet Hannah Hannah is not only
attending the Steubenville Conference;
she has also been selected to attend
LEAD - a week-long program offered
by the Franciscan University of
Steubenville prior to our group's
conference weekend. LEAD will prepare Hannah
not only to be a leader at the conference, it will
prepare her for leadership in our youth group and
parish in the future. Hannah is already a key member
of our Youth Leadership team. What would we do
without her? No matter what the event, she comes
early to help prepare and stays late to clean up. She's
been active in our retreats, our pro-life activities and
never hesitates to assist in the background to make
things go smoothly.
Almost $1,000 has been collected
through the Rice Bowl program.
If you haven’t done so yet, please
RETURN YOUR RICE BOWLS
to the Parish office at either church.
“The Paschal Mystery”
Our Catholic Update Series
concludes next Sunday morning,
April 19, 10:20-11:30am (during
religious education classes) in the
STA School Library.

The topic of the DVD presentation will be “The
Paschal Mystery . . . the Mystery of Jesus’ Death &
Resurrection.” The Paschal Mystery is a core doctrine
of the Church, one of the essential beliefs of all
Christians. Though all doctrines are important, it can
also be said that this is one of the doctrines which
defines the very heart of the Christian faith. Please join
us for coffee, juice, fellowship, an informative DVD and
some informal discussion. Questions? Contact Al
Weilbaecher at [email protected] or 351-5460.
RCIA Update
STA School News
Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
Upcoming Events to add to your Calendar:
This past Sunday the neophytes (formerly
catechumens) and the newly received
(formerly candidates) had their first
mystagogy (follow-up) session. They looked back on
their experience of the Easter Vigil and how God
spoke to them through that experience. They heard
from a couple of last year's RCIA people regarding
their first year's experience as a new Catholic. They
discussed forgiveness and Thomas' struggle to believe
from the gospel of the day. Finally, they received an
explanation about registering in a parish.

An adult event to raise funds for our “Tartans for
Teachers” continued educational development. Join
us for a pig roast and evening of fun!
This past week the inquirers and their sponsors
learned about the liturgical year. The Church
celebrates in a recurring annual cycle the way God's
time breaks into our time. God sanctifies all of
time. We continually move forward in God's time;
we are not trapped in an endless cycle.
April 29
Putting
Our Lives
Together
Jesus’ Help
Annual Senior Day of Reflection
The liturgical year is built around the central events
of Jesus' life. Advent and the Christmas season
surround his birth. Lent, Holy Week, and the Easter
Season surround his passion, death, Resurrection,
Ascension and the sending of the Holy Spirit at
Pentecost. The rest of the year is called "ordinary"
time. This is not because the time is unimportant.
Rather, it means those weeks in both winter and
summer are "ordered" to a regular celebration of the
Resurrection and our sharing in Christ's unending life.
All seniors are invited to join Fr. Larry Delaney at
St. Francis Retreat Center in DeWitt on Wednesday,
April 29. Register and pay your $10 in either office if
you would like to attend because reservations are
closing Monday, April 20 and seating is limited.
Doors open for coffee at 9:00am and dismissal is at
approximately 2:30pm. The day is sponsored by the
Lansing Area Catholic Council on Aging under the
auspices of St. Vincent Catholic Charities.
Also during this session the group explored the topic,
"If Jesus Started One Church, Where Did All the
Churches Come From?" They heard a brief overview
of the history of the major breaks which occurred
among the Christian Churches.
Please Pray for Our People in the Military
If you have any questions about the Rite of Christian
Initiation of Adults, or would like to discuss the
possibility of joining the next group of inquirers, call
