Bulletin: The Spirit of Truth will Testify

12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Love and Support for our Neighbors and our Community following the Fire at the Edge Community Apartments

We ask you to please keep the residents of the Edge Community in your thoughts and prayers.  We pray as a community for the restoration process to be efficient, to be just, to be well executed so that our friends and neighbors may return to this community and join us again.  We truly miss the hustle and bustle of our neighboring community and seeing their friendly faces each day.

If you are able to give to these families in some small financial way, please click the link below to access our online donation form.  This will be an ongoing ask until such a time as we are assured that all who are in need are cared for and secure.

If you are affected by this and need assistance, please let us know.

We will continue to provide updates on our Facebook pages and website; however we are anticipating that the need will be great, which would include temporary housing and financial assistance, among other things.Please let us know if you would like to help.

Resources for Reflection

Reverently Laying to Rest Service – July 29th 

The Gardens of Gethsemani is offering families a no-cost service to inter cremated remains in a communal crypt. The service is meant for families with cremated remains that have been kept at home for more than three years and who may have financial difficulties. This pastoral service is meant to help bring healing and closure for families. It provides a final resting place in a Catholic cemetery — a witness to the Catholic faith and an environment where souls are prayed over by the community. The prayer service and inurnment will begin at 11:00 am on July 29th. Donations to the Works of Mercy fund would be welcomed and appreciated. Arrangements, including paperwork, for interring remains in the crypt must be completed by July 14th. Space is limited and conditions apply. To register please email Anne-Marie White at awhite@rccav.org.
