Pentecost Sunday - May 28, 2023

What  wonders the Holy Spirit brings!  In Acts we hear of the first disciples speaking in tongues, proclaiming the wonders of God to people from every land gathered in Jerusalem.  Paul writes that the Holy Spirit gives us spiritual gifts, each given to manifest the Spirit's workings inn a unique way in our lives for the good of our Christian community.  In the Gospel, Jesus assures the disciples that the Holy Spirit enables them to forgive sins in God's name.  May we make the opening words of the sequence our common plea:  "Come, Holy Spirit, come!"

Congratulations to the students from our parishes Sts. Charles and Michael that are graduating or have graduated from grade school, high school or college.  We are very  proud to announce that Dalton Banach has graduated from SIU-C with a masters in  mechanical engineering.  Way to go Dalton!  If you have a graduate in your family you want to share in our bulletin, please let the parish offices know.   We wish the graduates well in their future endeavors.
