LIFE & DEATH
THEOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE
OF
END-OF-LIFE HEALTH CARE MEANS

What? We will consider ordinary, extraordinary, proportionate, and disproportionate means of health care from the standpoint of the Roman Catholic Magisterial teaching. 
Who? Fr. Anthony Stoeppel, pastor of Our Lady of Victory Church in Paris, is a native of Atlanta, TX, where he grew up as well as in Cynthian, KY. He received his BA and MA from the University of Kentucky, and spent four years as a brother with the Fathers of Mercy. He studied theology at Holy Apostles Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut, and was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Tyler on May 28, 2011.
Fr. Stoeppel received his doctoral degree in sacred theology in the field of bioethics by the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome on May 13, 2016.
He is the first priest of the Diocese of Tyler to receive a doctorate in moral theology.
When?  Wednesday Agust 31st, 2016 at 7:00 PM
Where?  St. Mary Catholic Church Parish Hall

THE CHILDREN’S FAITH FORMATION CLASS WILL START ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH AT 6:00 PM IN THE SHOPKA CENTER. 

*********************************

BLESSING OF BEER
On Sunday August 14, feast of St. Arnold of Soissons, patron saint of beer, beer brewing, and brewers, Fr. Gabriel will be blessing beer during mass. Bring your beer…and spread the word!
Note: This is not an encouragement for over indulgence. Drunkenness (a form of gluttony) constitutes a serious and grave sin. The abuse—not the use—of alcoholic beverages is what the Holy Scriptures and the Church condemn.

**********************************

THE HOLY EUCHARIST WILL BE EXPOSED FOR ADORATION ON THURSDAYS FROM 9:00 AM TO 9:00 PM IN THE CHURCH. 
This is an extension of the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament which occurs in every Mass: "Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb." Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament flows from the sacrifice of the Mass and serves to deepen our hunger for Communion with Christ and the rest of the Church.  If you would like to commit an hour or 30 minutes, please call the church office to sign up.

When? September 15th
Time? 6:30 PM
Where? Shopka Center

 

=================================

=================================

LAS CLASES DE FORMACIÓN DE FE PARA NIÑOS COMIENZAN  EL MIÉRCOLES, 7 DE SEPTIEMBRE A LAS 6:00 PM EN EL SALÓN SHOPKA. 

******************************* 

BENDICIÓN DE CERVEZA
El domingo 14 de agosto, fiesta de San Arnaldo de Soissons, santo patrono de la cerveza, de la fabricación de cerveza, y de las cervecerías y cerveceros, el P. Guillermo estará bendiciendo cerveza durante la misa. 
Nota: Esto no es un permiso para emborracharse. Emborracharse (una forma de glotonería) es un pecado grave. Sin embargo, el consumo responsable de cerveza (o cualquier otra bebida alcohólica) no constituye un pecado. El abuso—no el uso—es lo que la Santa Escritura y la Iglesia condena.

****************************
