New Addition from ACTS
If you get a chance to drive by the Faith Formation Building take a look at the new Statue of our Blessed Virgin Mary. The Statue along with all of the rose bushes and bench were donated by the Women’s & Men’s ACT’s Ministry and a personal donation from Paul Rodriguez. Both areas where Jesus and Mary stand are maintained by the ACTS group. We thank them for their generosity and their hard work in making it look so beautiful. God Bless!!!!
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults:
RCIA is the process by which adults join the Catholic Church. The RCIA takes place within the context of the parish community, and after a suitable period of formation,culminates in the reception of the Sacraments of Initiation— Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. RCIA is also suitable for adults who were baptized Catholic, but have not yet received the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. If you or someone you know is interested in finding out more about the Catholic Church, please contact Gerri Garza: (830)200-9854 (C), (830)484-2260 (H) or firstname.lastname@example.org . 2016-2017 classes are tentatively scheduled to begin on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 8:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall.
Bible Study at Blessed Sacrament Parish
Paul’s letter to the Galatians speaks directly to the heart of Christians and addresses the most important question we can ask: “What must we do to be saved?” It speaks of the extraordinary gift of salvation that Jesus has won for us, and how we can unite ourselves to Christ’s redeeming sacrifice.
In the study by Galatians: Set Free to Live by Jeff Cavins, learn what it means to have this son/daughter relationship with God the Father, how He honors us as His children, and how we must honor Him as our loving Father.
Join us for Galatians: Set Free to Live at Blessed Sacrament Parish Hall in Poth, TX beginning October 4 at 7:00 pm and continuing every Tuesday (except Nov. 1) through Nov. 29. Other parishes in the deanery are invited to participate as well. For more information or to register for the study, contact Margie Crosby at email@example.com no later than Sept. 13 so that materials can be ordered. Suggested donation is $25 to cover cost of materials. The course will also be available on-line.

We look forward to returning from our great adventure and sharing with you all of the wonderful experiences of our trip. We know that without your help, we would not be going.
We also want to give a big thank you to Father Gregory for supporting us and standing behind us in everything we did to earn money for our trip. Without your prayers and guidance, we would be lost.
