Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

If any parish organizations have news for the bulletin, please contact Cathy Tindall (, or call/text 601-530-6151)

CCD HAS STARTED! Please have your children here on time. It is important. Thank you.

OCTOBER 6 – There will be a meeting with the Very Reverend Mark Ropel at 10am in the parish hall to discuss parish concerns. Please feel free to attend if you are able.

LADIES OF THE PARISH – We are starting a new enrichment program called “Discipleship Quad.” it is a process. “A group of 4 people of the same gender meet weekly for 44 weeks to reflect on Scripture and Church teaching. They encourage each other to be more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in the Church through tangible acts. When finished, they each continue the path of discipleship by starting another quad with 3 more people.” “At its heart, it is about brothers helping brothers and sisters helping sisters become more joyful disciples of Jesus Christ. Through this, your faith will grow stronger. Your prayer will grow deeper. Your witness to others will be more fruitful. The friendships you make will be life-changing and long-lasting.” Please call/text JoAnn Bowie (251-367-6691) for more information.

REMINDER – Father Marascalco will be the chaplain and spiritual director of a pilgrimage to Rome and the Amalfi Coast from Sept 19 – 25 with 206 Tours. If you are interested in going on that pilgrimage, please contact Fr. Marascalco. We wish him a buon viaggio! Safe travels, Father.
