Bishop Gregory L. Parkes, our newly appointed Bishop has voiced a desire to “get to know and to listen to the people so as to learn from and discern with them the pastoral needs of our Diocese.” To achieve this goal, Bishop Parkes will be conducting a number of “Listening Sessions” at strategically located areas throughout the Diocese. St. Scholastic has been identified as the location for one of these gatherings and will be honored to host this session. The date and time for the St. Scholastica session has yet to be determined and we will provide this information to you as soon as it is available.
Bishop Parkes would like to frame the discussion with the following questions:
Bishop Parkes hopes that these sessions will be “occasions for us all to discover what the Spirit is saying to our local Church as together we strive to be the missionary and evangelizing disciples the Lord calls us to be.”
You are invited to attend the Mission of St. Scholastica Parish the week of january 28, 2017 to February 1, 2017 at 7:00 pm.

Reconciliation - The Love of Christ compels Us (2 Corinthians 5:14-20) is the theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (January 18-25). Begun in 1908, these days have been set aside each year so that Christians the world over may share the prayer of Jesus: "that all may be one...that the world may believe" (John 17:21)
Remember these dates in your prayers and reflection for the week.
