DID YOU KNOW? St. Scholastica is a CRHP Parish. So, what is CRHP?
Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) is very simply, a renewal program designed to strengthen our very own parish and increase our faith and love of God in the process. It is not a retreat, which is meant to strenghten our individual faith and bring us closer to our God. CRHP is a renewal, meant to strenghten our parish as a faith community, bringing our entire worshipping community closer to our God. It also is a source of great spiritual growth.
CRHP is a team effort. We currently have a team of parishioners, possibly even friends of yours, who are preparing to share what they have gained with you. We will be ministering our renewal weekends later in the fall. More information will follow.
For now, we ask for your prayers. Please pray for our team, that we may grow in the love of Christ, that we may hear God's plans for us, and that we may have the grace and courage to respond to His call. "Here I am, Lord, I come to do your will." Psalm 40:8-9
Registrations are now being accepted for Faith Formation classes that will begin in September, 2014. Please pick up your registration packet in the parish office if you have a child/children who will be entering grades Kindergarten through 8th grade in the fall. Registering your children before August 15 will allow you to take advantage of the early registration fee. Please be aware that it is diocesan policy that children who seek to receive the sacraments of First Holy Communion or Confirmation are required to attend two years of Faith Formation classes prior to receiving these sacraments.
Are you new to St. Scholastica Parish and looking for a way to serve your new church? Please consider being a Sacristan. Sacristans arrange the necessary vessels for the priest to conduct the Mass and clean those vessels after the Mass. Training will be provided. Your only requirements are a willingness to learn and be a Catholic in good standing.
Please contact Toni Lempner @ 270-3450.
Would you like to serve as a greeter at the Mass you attend?
It's a great way to meet the people you see every week - your parish family.
Share the joy that you feel when you attend Mass at St. Scholastica with visitors. It's always nice to see a smiling face at the door of a place where you are unfamiliar.
If you can get to Mass one-half hour early and stand at the door until it is time for Mass to being once a month, call or email us:

The Council of Catholic Women would like to invite each and every woman in the parish to a special "Welcome" meeting on October 20th. We invite you to come and see what we are all about and are looking forward to meeting you. The rosary will be said before the meeting at 9:30 am in the church followed by the general meeting held at the parish center at 10:00 am.

School can be a challenging place, especially middle and high school. As you begin a new school year, we would like to give you a chance to stop and think about what being a Catholic Christian at school means. If you are in 6th - 12th grade, please join us as we take a day to reflect on how we can stay true to our faith in our daily lives, especially at school!

The Knights of Columbus will be running their annual "Tools for Schools" drive through July and August. All supplies collected will be split between St. Pope John Paul II School and Daystar Life Center. Many of the more needy families cannot afford food much less school supplies. Last year, the generous parishioners donated enough supplies to assist 200 children. Often in august, many school supplies go on sale for just 1¢. Your donations are very much appreciated.
