CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF THE DIOCESE OF NEW ULM provides help with individual, marriage and family counseling;

PASTOR’S NOTES: God’s blessings on all Mothers on this Mother’s Day. “Loving God, bless these
women, that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers. Let the example of their faith and love shine
forth. Grant that we, their sons daughters, may honor them always with a spirit of profound respect.”
May God’s blessings be with all our graduates. May God fill their hearts with a spirit of gratefulness for
their years of schooling and for all who have helped them to reach this point in their lives. May God now
bless them as they move on to new plans in their lives and strengthen them to always live this Christian faith.
Thank you to all who helped with the senior reception after the Sunday Masses.
SCRIPTURE NOTES: "Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented from
recognizing him." Why didn't they recognize Jesus until "he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave
it to them"? During their encounter, Jesus had appeared to be just another man. But when he broke the breadin fact, celebrating the Eucharist-they realized who he was. And then, he "vanished from their sight." Could it
be that the risen Lord wanted to teach his followers about the new way in which he was present? He was
there, as we Catholics profess, through his real presence in the Eucharist. We are not so different from the
disciples on the road to Emmaus. We may at times wish that Jesus was with us in a more obvious, traditional
way. But the risen Lord comes to join us every time we go to Mass, remaining with us through his presence
in the Eucharist.
WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS: Today, the Fourth Sunday of Easter or Good Shepherd
Sunday, is a special day for everyone in our parish. We celebrate “World Day of Prayer for Vocations”.
We ask that we may be filled with joy and the Holy Spirit as we carry on the mission of Jesus, our Good
Shepherd. Let us pray for one another that we may be strengthened in our Christian vocations as married and
single people, priests, deacons, and religious. May our youth listen to God’s call and be encouraged to
respond generously.

our Area Faith parishes are making plans to attend the Catholic Heart Workcamp in Billings, Montana, in
July, 2014. We are confident that this will be an unforgettable trip as we serve the poor and disabled through
community service, along with over 300 other students from around the country. We’ve raised $7000.00
through various fundraisers and are grateful for your generous support. We need to raise an additional
$5000.00 to cover our final travel expenses for the trip. If possible, consider a donation of money or gift of
grain. Donations can be made to the Christ the King Area Faith with a note for the Youth Mission Trip. If
you have questions, contact Fr. Ron, Betty Thooft, or Ron and Rhonda Wiering. Thank you for your support.

welcome to take advantage of these lessons. The lessons will be held during the months of June and July,
and the instructor will meet students at their home parish to practice on the organ they generally play. We
especially encourage pianists to become familiar with organ technique so that this wonderful instrument can
be more effectively used in parish liturgies. For more information contact Sr. Myriam Rose, ACJ, New Ulm

Have you heard about Immaculee Ilibagiza who is coming to New Ulm on June 20th, 2014 to share her
amazing story of survival and healing after the Rwanda genocide? Here is a bit of information of what
Immaculee will speak about: On April 7, 1994, Immaculee Ilibagiza, through the request of her father,
entered a small bathroom with seven other women to take shelter from a storm of evil that had
overtaken Rwanda, literally overnight. She did not know upon entering, that when she left that tiny
cubicle 91 days later, she would be an orphan. Losing not only her parents to the Rwandan Genocide,
but everyone in her entire family(except for a brother who was studying overseas). The murderers
were not strangers, but family friends she had known all her life. Check out her story
on Join us and hear Immaculee speak about her journey from losing her loved
ones to forgiving their murderers, an incredible and powerful story.
