Welcome!! We are glad you came to join with us in our worship today. We hope that you have
felt God’s love in a new, refreshing way…
From Fr. Tony
“A prophet like me will the LORD, your God, raise up
for you from among your own kindred; that is the one to
whom you shall listen…I will raise up for them a prophet
like you from among their kindred, and will put my words
into the mouth of the prophet; the prophet shall tell them
all that I command” (Deuteronomy 18:15, 18). As I read
this passage from our first reading this weekend of God’s
call for Moses to be His prophet, I am reminded about the
office we share with Christ by our Baptism. When we are
baptized, we are baptized as Priest, Prophet, and King. All
of us, by virtue of our Baptism, share in the prophetic role
of Christ. All of us are called to proclaim God’s word and
teach people of God’s love and what it means to be
members of His Body, the Church.
As we finish another week of Catholic Schools, our
Area Faith Community is blessed to have a Catholic
school community to share with our young people the
faith, to enhance their knowledge, and to offer
opportunities to grow in loving service. We are truly
blessed to have great listeners in our children, as
Deuteronomy writes. However, we are also truly blessed
to have wonderful prophets, like Moses, in our school.
When I came here 7 months ago, I was impressed to see
how our prophets (the faculty, staff, and administration)
share a common goal. As prophets, they tell what God has
commanded them by their words and actions. They all
have the desire to put their kids and the mission of the
school before themselves. They are not only great
examples of modern day prophets; they all share in the
Priestly office of Christ – by sacrificing their own needs
and wants for the benefit of the school.
For this and for all that they do for our school.
Therefore, when you see a teacher, staff member, or
principal, please thank them for sharing the faith,
developing the knowledge, and encouraging opportunities
for service to our children. Speaking of teachers and
prophets, enjoy…
The teacher was carefully explaining the story of Elijah
the Prophet and the false prophets of Baal. She explained
how Elijah built the altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer
in pieces and laid it upon the altar. And then Elijah
commanded the people of God to fill four barrels of water
and pour it over the altar. He had them do this four
times. "Now, said the teacher, "can anyone in the class
tell me why the Lord would have Elijah pour water over
the steer on the altar?" A little girl in the back of the room
raised her hand with great enthusiasm. "To make the
We truly have great prophets among us, please join
me, as we thank them!
 All who made Catholic Schools Week a great success.
Our Catholic education is a wonderful gift, and we are
so grateful to all who volunteered and attended the
different events.
 Those who helped with last year’s Catholic Heart
Work Camp And for helping with the slide show last
weekend. Again, if any of our 9-12 graders are
interested in going this year (June 20-27), please let
Sherry Plaetz know at the office.
In Christ through His Mother, Fr. Tony

“How much anxiety do we bring upon ourselves by
constantly worrying about not having enough or attaining
more things? God won’t necessarily give you everything
you want, but He will provide everything you need. Try
this – use the word “pray” instead of the word “worry” in
the future.”
“Act today in such a way that you do not need to blush
St. John Bosco
“Sin: it seemed like a good idea at the time.”
“Good chooses ordinary people to speak his message.
Can you perceive the voice of God in those around you?
If you hear god’s voice, harden not your heart..”

Recently, a commercial refrigerator used in St.
Anne’s church kitchen broke down. Because this was
unexpected, repair or replacement cost was not in our
budget. The refrigerator is used for the Hot Lunch
Program, Fall Festival, School Carnival, funerals and other
church events so we had to replace it. If you could help
out with this expense, it would be much appreciated.
