Lord our God, when your Son was dying on the altar of the cross, he gave us as our mother the one he had chosen to be his own mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary; grant that we who call upon the holy name of Mary, our mother, with confidence in her protection may receive strength and comfort in all our needs.

Ministry of Consolation -- Bereavement Ministry

It is the goal of the community of Our Lady of the Meadows

that no member should suffer the loss of a loved one in isolation.

To that end, we are pleased to offer ongoing supportive

and pastoral services for the bereaved through the ministry of

consolation. These services include a monthly support group

on the second Thursday of each month; routine contact by

telephone and mail, as desired; assistance at funerals and receptions.

All services are free and available to parishioners or

any family member who is experiencing the loss of a loved one.

It is our hope that, through these pastoral services, those suffering

a loss may come to know the loving support of the faith community.

For more information contact the parish office, or Paula Giordano at 561-2958.

VOCATIONS

 

 

WHATKINDS OF PEOPLE become priests, sisters or brothers? Are they people who don't relate well with other people? No. They are people who love others - people who find real satisfaction chatting with a 93-year-old parishioner, holding the hand of a cancer patient, listening to the troubles of a streetwise teen. They are people with the courage to touch lives, hearts and souls in a high-tech, unchurched world. Are you that kind of person? Pray for "Yes" response to God's call.

MARRIAGE MOMENTS

"Love is work. It's good work, if you can get

it. But it's work, nevertheless.'' (Benjamin

Cheever) Name one thing your beloved has

done for you that you know took extra effort

on their part.

PARENTING POINTERS

Imposing a punishment is no fun for the parent

or the child. First parents must show selfdiscipline

in deciding the best action, then

execute it with loving firmness. What's your

discipline of choice - an extra chore, removal

of a privilege, time-out...?

Strengthen your drooping hands and your weak knees.

Make straight paths for your feet,

that what is lame may not be disjointed but healed.

--Hebrews 12:12-13



Jesus, I Trust in You!


By asking for the Lord's mercy, trusting in His mercy, and sincerely trying to live His mercy in our lives, we can assure that we will never hear Him say of us, "Their hearts are far  from Me," but rather that wonderful promise, "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy."

PEACE & JUSTICE
 

Remember to pray for peace every day at noon.

“Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Poet, Essayist, wrote Nature



POINTS TO PONDER
 

Peer Ministry 101!

Peer Ministry is for teens...

seeking greater involvement in their church wanting to share their

gifts and talents desiring a deeper relationship with God willing to

participate in Catholic Christian service, faith witness, and

leadership. Peer Ministry is the youth leadership of Holy Family

and Our Lady of the Meadows....and YOU are invited to apply!

What is Peer Ministry?

It is an opportunity for high school youth to respond to their

baptismal call to be a priest (servant), prophet (faith witness) and

king (leader) among their peers in youth related events and activities

in our parishes and in the community. Peer ministers serve as leaders

for youth groups (middle school and high school), music, retreats,

service pieces, and more! Teens in Peer Ministry choose his or her

commitment level and specific responsibilities. Fall retreat and some

training are required for those interested.

Why should I get involved?

You should be a peer minister if you possess the passion and

courage to preserve and grow in your relationship with God, serve

others, witness your faith (share and spread the Good News), and

to build skills to be a leader. It is a good way to invest yourself in

your church and community, as well as develop long-lasting

friendships in both areas, thereby building skills and resources

that will be useful for the rest of your life. Involvement in this is

good for college applications, employment applications, school

service hours, resumes and other things too.

Who can be in Peer Ministry?

Peer Leader: Any mature teen (grades 8-12). For younger teens,

teens that are interested but unsure, and teens that cannot commit

to ongoing involvement or the regular planning/formation sessions

expected of Peer Ministers.

Peer Minister: Any mature teen (grades 9-12) that is interested in

serving other teens, and has at least one year’s experience as a

Peer Leader.

Both require two adult character references.

What Is Expected of Me?

A willingness to serve, care for others, ability to interact with peers,

clergy, adult ministry members and/or leaders, model Catholic

values, and a desire to grow in faith.

Peer Ministry: Rooted in Baptism

Peer Ministry is difficult to define. “Peer” refers to someone of

similar age or status. “Ministry” can be used to refer to many

different types of actions and jobs. It is more than what happens

inside the Church. The term “ministry” in a more specific sense to

refer to the liturgical roles and actions associated with ordained

ministers (priests or deacons). These liturgical roles/actions make

present, Christ’s work of redemption and salvation, through God’s

power and grace in the sacraments. The work of Christ is simply

the bringing others to God the Father. Ministry simply put is

anything we do that continues the work of Christ.

Peer Ministry is more than some leadership group or training

program for teens. It is about teens and adults committed to

continuing the work of Christ. It is about helping others grow

closer to God and his Church.

The sacrament of baptism bestows various gifts upon us not for

our own selfish end, but to become more and more like Christ the

High Priest, Christ the Prophet, and Christ the King. Every Christian

is baptized priest, prophet, and king. Christ as priest offers the

perfect sacrifice, himself on the cross. Christ as prophet lives perfect

relationship and faithfulness to God, calling others into right

relationship. Christ as King has conquered the enemy and given

direction and purpose in our lives. As another Christ in the world

we share in these three roles of Christ; priest, prophet, and king.

Teens in peer ministry seek to intentionally live out and exercise

these roles within their parish community.

Why You Need to Pray through School

Consider these 5 points:

● God can help us through problems. Somewhere along the way,

people have forgotten that prayer WORKS. God truly hears our

prayers, and He will give you what you need. A school year is

filled with challenges and hardships–this will never change. But

you can face these struggles with new confidence because you

aren’t just thinking about them, you are praying about them.

● You need a new perspective on your friends and enemies. I mean

it. Write down their names and pray for them out loud, maybe at

night before you go to bed. If you know your best friend’s parents

are getting a divorce, then pray for her! If your enemy looks gloomy

at school, pray that he can get through his problems. Praying for

both friends and enemies is a powerful act because it forces you to

be compassionate with the people who surround you. With

compassion, you won’t think everything they say and do is directed

at you. You realize that there’s more going on inside of them.

● Draw your confidence from your relationship with Jesus, not

with other people. The #1 relationship in your life should be You +

Jesus. If this relationship is strong, then every other relationship

makes more sense. These relationships will bring you more life,

rather than taking life away from you. When you build your

confidence on Jesus, your self esteem is more stable. People will

make fun of you and it doesn’t matter as much as it did before. And

you cannot have a strong relationship with the Lord if you don’t

spend time with Him. That’s what prayer is all about.

● Prayer is a refreshing break to a busy school schedule. I know,

you are too busy to pray! I know it doesn’t really make sense at

first, but taking time away from homework, practice, your job–

whatever–actually will help you get more done. You will come

back from a prayer break with new energy, clarity, and commitment.

Try it!

● Prayer helps you make good decisions that bring a good future.

Sometimes we can get so obsessed with little decisions and little

dramas that we don’t see the big picture of life. But when you pray

your way through school, you are actively inviting God into your

daily life. And all those days add up to a year, and all of those

years add up to a lifetime. God will become the great Guide of your

life, which will bring you true happiness today and into your future.

The Culture of Life

 

How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?

Mother Teresa  I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them. Dt 30:19-20

Let us Pray: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

LOVE is to will the good of the other.

 

Whom you would change, you must first love
and they must know that you love them.
Martin Luther King

" Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining.  As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen ."
