ST. VINCENT DE PAUL
In today’s Gospel Jesus said to his disciples: “I have come to
set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how
great is my anguish until it is` accomplished!”
The gift of your volunteering with the Society to help assist
those suﬀering in poverty can set the earth on fire with God’s
love. Please join us at our next meeting on August 18, 2016 at
7:00pm in Room 1 downstairs. If you would like more
information about membership, please contact us at
En el evangelio de hoy Jesus dice a sus discipulos: “Yo he
venido a prender fuego sobre la tierra, y cuanto desearia que
ya estuviera encendido! Tengo que pasar por un bautismo, y
cuan grande es mi angustia hasta que se haya cumplido!
Donando tiempo para ser voluntario de la Sociedad de San
Vicente de Paul y ayudando a aquellos que sufren probreza,
puedo encender el fuego del amor de Dios. Por favor unase a
nuestra labor; la proxima reunion es el 18 de Agosto, 2016 a
las 7:00 pm en el salor 1 abajo. Si quiere mas informacion para

Join the Catholic Mothers Council!
The Catholic Mothers Council is just one way for mothers of all ages and stages
(including future moms) to become involved in service and fellowship at Our Lady of
the Lake. The meetings consist of light refreshments, prayer, fellowship and service
opportunities as we focus on Catholic education for mothers and their families. We
raise money through one main event, the St. Nicholas Brunch, in December and the
money raised is earmarked for the religious development of our parish’s children.
The biggest change this year is that we will meet in the evening of the first Thursday
of each month (7‐9pm). We encourage all moms, working inside or outside the
home, to join us and be supported. Proverbs 27:17 tells us that “Iron sharpens iron,
and one man sharpens another.” Let us learn from each other and grow in wisdom
together. We need you!
Our first meeting will be September 1st at 7:00pm in the Holy Family Center. We hope
St. Monica, patron saint
you will join us one night a month to deepen your faith and friendships with our
sisters in Christ.

Have you and your spouse ever thought of how you can serve the Lord as a couple?
Great News!! Our Marriage Ministry is looking for married couples to sponsor newly engaged and civilly
A sponsor couple is a couple‐to‐couple ministry in which married couples mentor engaged or civilly married
couples. They help couples prepare for the Sacrament of Matrimony. The couple must be married a
minimum of 5 years and be married within the guidelines of the Church.
The couple works with the engaged couples by means of the FOCCUS Program. The goal is to:
• Foster a sense of care and concern in couples and to help them prepare for their commitment to God
and one another within the Church and community.
• Explore with the engaged couple’s issues through the results of a marriage preparation called FOCCUS, or
• Mentor couples on how to worship and pray together.
Provide couples an opportunity to understand the Sacrament of Marriage through the married couple’s lived
The ministry provides information to couples on the teachings and understanding of the Catholic Church’s
view of the Sacrament of Marriage. Through this ministry couples learn skills that they will use as husband
and wife to draw them closer to God, to the Church, and to each other as a visible sign and reminder of
Christ’s sacrificial love for all people.
This ministry is a great way to strengthen your own marriage as well as help couples prepare for this

The Assumption. Through Mary, Jesus came into the world. She nurtured him, witnessed his
passion, and stood by the apostles at Pentecost.
Mary's life mirrors God's relationship with us
during times of bliss and agony. Despite being
the mother of God, she focused on those in
need, the hungry, the poor, the lowly. Let go of
your importance today and join Mary.
"Families must do two things to survive - protect
themselves from what is most hurtful and connect
with what is good outside the family. These tasks
require time and energy, both of which are scarce
commodities in an era when many parents work long
hours at jobs." (Mary Pipher) Do you need to adjust
your family balance?
