Welcome Matt Pommier

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Our new Director of Faith formation, Matt Pommier has a passion for catholic youth ministry and the message of Christ in the Gospel.  He's joining us from St. Mary Parish in Derby where he has served as the Coordinator of Youth ministry for a little over a year now.  Matt said he's excited to "continue the good work being done at St. Mark's." and that "the opportunity to share my talents and experiences with such an awesome parish community is a real blessing!"

When Matt was a teen at Our Lady of Lourdes in Pittsburg KS, Fr. Brian Nelson really got the ball rolling with the youth of the parish through some awesome youth group activities and really fun events.  Matt hopes to bring those same life changing experiences and inspiring passion to St. Marks.  Come join us next Wednesday for a youth minister meet & greet @ 7pm.

(Romereports.com) During his homily at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis called on Catholics to forgive others as Jesus forgives. He said that forgiveness is a strength that Jesus gives through prayer.

POPE FRANCIS
"We can only pray well, and call God ‘Father’ if our heart is at peace with others, with our brothers. ‘But father, this person did this to me, and this person did this to me, and that person did this…’ ‘Forgive. Forgive as He forgave you.’ And so the weakness that we have, with the help of God in prayer becomes strength because forgiveness is a great strength. One needs to be strong to forgive, but this strength is a grace that we must receive from the Lord because we are weak.”

 

Congratulations to Colton and Leah Duhr, who were married at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church on June 6th, 2015. May God bless them each day of their married life with a love like that of Christ for His Church.

(Romereports.com) Pope Francis talked about wealth. He said that when a person is attached to material riches, life becomes sad and selfish. He said it slowly chips away at hope and it opens the door towards corruption, both big and small.

POPE FRANCIS
"The attachment to riches is the beginning of all kinds of corruption, in all aspects: personal corruption, corruption in business, even small commercial bribery, the kind that shortchanges you at the counter, political corruption, corruption in education ... Why? Because those who live attached to their own power and their own wealth, they believe they’re in heaven.”
