How we serve: Each month donations for the poor will be collected and distributed to established organizations that are best equipped and currently serving the poor. Donations of can goods and paper products may be brought any weekend to the parish and placed on the shelves located on the upper level by the elevator. Collections will be delivered to the established organizations the first week of the following month of the collection, for example: January’s collection will be delivered the first week of February.
Please say the following prayer when compiling your donation:
A Prayer of Thanksgiving
Thank you Lord, for making my life free of serious want. Protect those in need with food this day. Give me a chance to nourish the poor through my compassion. Help me to see the hungry and never turn away. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
Divine Mercy Ministry
In the Main Church
(After the 11:00 a.m. Mass)
The Catechism of the Catholic Church
Christ invites his disciples to follow him by taking up their cross in their turn. By following him they acquire a new outlook on illness and the sick. Jesus associates them with his own life of poverty and service. He makes them share in his ministry of compassion and healing: “So they went out and preached that men should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.”
The Holy Spirit gives to some a special charism of healing so as to make manifest the power of the grace of the risen Lord. But even the most intense prayers do not always obtain the healing of all illnesses. Thus St. Paul must learn from the Lord that “my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness,” and that the sufferings to be endured can mean that “in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his Body, that is, the Church.
“Heal the sick!” The Church has received this charge from the Lord and strives to carry it out by taking care of the sick as well as by accompanying them with her prayer of intercession….”
What does Sacred Scripture say About Charismatic Gifts
Corinthians, Chapter 12:27-31
Application to Christ.
Now you are Christ’s body, and individually parts of it. Some people God has designated in the church to be, first, apostles;* second, prophets; third, teachers; then, mighty deeds; then, gifts of healing, assistance, administration, and varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work mighty deeds? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.
1 Corinthians, Chapter 12
Unity and Variety.
Now in regard to spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be unaware. You know how, when you were pagans, you were constantly attracted and led away to mute idols. Therefore, I tell you that nobody speaking by the spirit of God says, “Jesus be accursed.” And no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the holy Spirit.
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit. To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom; to another the expression of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit; to another mighty deeds; to another prophecy; to another discernment of spirits; to another varieties of tongues; to another interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing them individually to each person as he wishes.
Ladies Altar SocietyTaking care of the Altar and Sacred Linens
Although their main ministry is taking care of the altar and everything which keeps it beautiful and functional, including the care of sacred linens, The Ladies Altar Society works hard to support the parish in other ways as well. Not only that, but they honor the parish mothers and fathers on their special days in May and June each year. Their devotion is to St. Francis, whose feast day is on the 4th of October. Each year, they received a blessing together, as a group during Mass from Fr. Jeff in honor of their patron saint, St. Francis. If you are interested in this ministry, contact Mary Ann Wilson at 859-356-649 or just come. They meet once a month, in the Parish Hall. Ladies, come join us!
As Lay Apostles of Jesus Christ the Returning King, we agree to perform our basic obligations as practicing Catholics. Additionally, we adopt the following spiritual practices, as best we can:
Ministry for Alternatives to Contraception and Women with Irregular Cycles
- Allegiance Prayer and Morning Offering, plus a brief prayer for the Holy Father.
- Eucharistic Adoration – one hour per week
- Prayer Group Participation – monthly, where we pray the Luminous Mysteries of the Holy Rosary and read the Monthly Message.
- Monthly Confession
- Further, we follow the example of Jesus Christ as set out in Holy Scripture, treating all others in His patience and kindness.
