Church Budget Giving Envelopes has contacted the parish office to let us know that due to a paper shortage, there will be no February and March envelopes sent. They have secured a permanent supply solution moving forward and send their deepest apologies. Envelopes will resume in April. For those who continue to use envelopes, you can do one of two things, place your check or cash in an envelope, with your name on it so that you can get credit and then put it in the collection or you can sign up for online giving. Just go back to the homepage of the website and click the Give button at the top. It will then walk you through it. For your convenience, a button has been added. Just click it and it will take you to the online giving page. If you choose to give online, please let the office know so that we can discontinue sending envelopes.

2023 Serra Club John D. Kelley Vocations Essay Contest

The Serra Club of Indianapolis is sponsoring its 2023 annual vocations essay contest.  It is open to any Catholic student in grades 7 through 12 in parochial, public or homeschool systems in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

The theme for this year’s contest is: 

In one way or another, all the saints had a great devotion to the Eucharist.  Moreover, only with the help of the Eucharist did any saint fulfill his or her vocation. 

Pick a particular saint and describe their relationship with the Eucharist.  How did your saint’s devotion to the Eucharist enable them to fulfill their vocation?  How does this saint’s love of the Eucharist inspire you?

For more details and an essay submission form, contact your school religion teacher, REP instructor, or parish catechist/youth minister.  Information is also available from Serra Club member, Dick Cannon, at

Submitted essays must be postmarked no later than Friday, March 17, 2023.

Prayer for Eucharistic Revival
Archdiocese of Indianapolis

Lord Jesus Christ,
In our pride…humble us
In our greed…free us
In our lust…fulfill us
In our envy…satisfy us
In our gluttony…feed us
In our wrath…release us
In our sloth…invigorate us
In our stubbornness…soften us
In our apathy…love us 
In our lukewarmness…impassion us 
In our neglect…turn toward us
In our deafness…call us
In our drifting…lead us
In our doubt…assure us
In our grief…infill us
In our sickness…heal us
In our frailty…strengthen us
In our darkness…find us
In our fear…encourage us
In our temptation…guard us
In our poverty…raise us
In our loneliness…befriend us
In our exhaustion…carry us
In our work…fashion us
In our sacrifice…renew us
In our pain…comfort us
Throughout our lives…animate us
When we sin…forgive us
When weakness conquers…overwhelm us
Through your death…perfect us
At our death…revive us into eternal life

Let us Pray
God our Father, it is through the perfect sacrifice of your Son that you offer to all abundance of new life in this present age.  We pray that where we experience loss in the life of Grace, you would pour out upon our Archdiocese the saving gifts conveyed through the most holy Body and Blood of your Son.  May His Eucharistic life consume us all and revive each of us into His one body and singular mission, welling up to eternal life.  We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.

The Fiber Ministry has been busy making afghans for the newly baptized. However, if you know of a family member that could use a prayer shawl or a lap blanket, please let the office know. Please watch the bulletin for their next meeting.
